Family Practice Class: Opening the Heart through the Buddha’s Teachings

February 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

with Eve Decker, Keisha Turner, Baruch Golden, Lev White, Jessy Zapanta, Julie Goeshe and Vickie Chang

For Children Ages 0-13 and Family / Caregivers

We invite you to come and be a part of the diverse family sangha at EBMC. We welcome families with babies, toddlers, and children up to age 12. Children under 5 will need to have a parent/caregiver stay with them. We gather to create a safe refuge to share the joys and the challenges of parenting by cultivating loving kindness, compassion, patience and generosity with the support of the sangha. It is a wonderful opportunity to have family time without digital distractions and to learn mindful practices for the whole family. Parents/caregivers and children meet together and sometimes separately during the class. Families with children under the age of 5 meet in a mindful playgroup. We are committed to creating a diverse family sangha, all families are welcomed. No prior experience is necessary.

Please note, each family only needs one registration. Thank You!
