Twice a Month on Sunday

Every parent wants their child to be happy, healthy, and successful in life. Meditation is a perfect tool to introduce to children, and promotes inner strength and emotional well-being.

In these classes, children learn simple meditations, as well as methods to calm their minds and deal with negative feelings. Classes include a short discussion about everyday experiences relevant to children, guided meditation, and fun activities that foster habits such as kindness cooperation, patience and giving. For ages 4-12.

Drop-in at any time. No need to pre-register. $2 per child. We are a non-profit organization. All profits go towards supporting the International Temples Project for World Peace.

While children are in their class, adults are welcome to join us for Prayers for World Peace which happens concurrently in the World Peace Temple.

Upcoming Classes:

  • June 2nd
  • June 16
  • June 30

Class Location
 

Meditation for Kids is held in the Main House Meditation Room at Kadampa Meditation Center New York. 47 Sweeney Road Glen Spey, NY 12737. Click here for directions.

Class Structure
 

Parents will drop their children at the Main House and sign them in. At that time they can pay ($2 per child) and the make their way to the Temple for the Prayers for World Peace class. At the end of the class, they can retrieve their child at the same location they were dropped.

The group will be led in a short guided breathing meditation. This gives each child an opportunity to practice training in self-control, both inside and out – in their thoughts and physical actions. Meditations are no longer than 10 minutes. No previous experience is necessary.
