Mindful Families – Unlock Your Brain

Join us for an afternoon as we mindfully pause and investigate the brain. What is the brain’s job? What happens when our brain goes into fight-flight mode? And how do we calm down when things get hard? This is our topic of investigation and we’ll see how we can apply various mindful tools to help our brain when the going gets tough!

Mindful Families – Authentically You!

This month we will be exploring how to bring out what is true and unique in each of us and offer that to the world. Often there is pressure to be like “someone else” or “the cool kid in the class” but we need to appreciate our uniqueness and individuality and bring that to our families and community. The afternoon will culminate in painting the tsa-tsa statues of Lama Tsong Khapa. BYO comfortable smock or old clothes, snacks and water bottle.

Mindful Families – The Power of Words

Through meditation, activities and craft, your kids will have a chance to explore how our words impact not just the people around us but the world around us. Learn how powerful our words can be and how we can use them with kindness and wisdom.

Mindful Families Picnic at Orleigh Park

Mindful Families – Appreciating Nature Afternoon

Through songs, craft and activities kids will have a chance to explore our interdependence with nature, whilst also having fun! After a short meditation and activities each child will be able to create their very own mini pot plant holder, complete with plant.

Mindful Families Celebrates Buddha’s Birthday

All families are warmly invited to our re-designed Mindful Families event. This year the kids will create their own ‘stained glass’ style Buddha window silhouette! So come along and enjoy the elephant loaded with offerings, a short meditation, animated DVD about Buddha’s life, bathing the baby Buddha, singing happy birthday and sharing cake afterwards.

Mindful Families

Children are strongly influenced by Superheroes & Heroines, so we want to use this opportunity to really dig into what exactly ‘Supers’ are all about and what values they represent. In this family mindfulness session, we will brainstorm our own superpowers such as patience, courage and focus. We will also be designing our own super costume to represent the family values we hold dear and use everyday. Join the family fun with these special activities for children 4-8 years and their parents.

Mindful Families
