Kids Meditation Class at Kadampa Meditation Center
Once a Month on Sunday 11:00am-12:30pm
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 Meditation Class which happens concurrently in the World Peace Temple.
Upcoming Kids Meditation Class Dates: August 25th, September 8th, October 13th, November 10th.
Meditation for Kids is held in the Main House Meditation Room at Kadampa Meditation Center New York. 47 Sweeney Road Glen Spey, NY 12737. Parents can 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.

IceBreaker: We begin each session by learning each others’ names and playing a game or two to get more comfortable.
Short Lesson: The Teacher presents a few methods to help each child calm their mind and gain simple tools to deal with negative feelings. Classes also include a short discussion about everyday experiences relevant to children.
Meditation: 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.
Activity: To conclude, the group will enjoy either a group project or a nature hike that helps to give them something to “take away” from the class.

Accommodations & vegetarian meals available, contact registration for rates.
