I am Home: Half-Day Mindfulness Practice for children, parents and adults

July 16, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Sunday 16 July 2017, during the school holidays
9.30am
12.30pm
Cost: By Donation | BYO Lunch
Location: Metta Centre

For the upcoming school holidays, Metta Centre will be hosting an event for children and adults of all ages. Families, couples and singles, are all welcome to participate, and parents with their children can practice the Dharma together. In these practical sessions, children and adults can discover ways to bring mindfulness and kindness into each other’s lives, into their hearts, and into their home. In this way, we can find our way back to our true home.

The sessions will be facilitated by Sister Emerald and Sister Steadiness, both students of Ven Thich Nhat Hanh.

For parents with children aged 5 years and under, please ensure that at least one parent is to be present with their child or children.

As children and adults may have specific needs, please bring packed vegetarian lunches for yourself and any children coming with you, if you wish to participate in lunch.
