We started our Dharma Bum Kids & Teens Group in 2010 and expanded this program in 2017 to be more inclusive of the entire family. We have classes for the parents, teens and younger kids while also creating a safe space for toddlers.

The Family Sangha is a place where parents get the opportunity to sit in meditation with other parents. We discuss Buddhist practices that help us balance the stressful job of parenting. Being a parent is is a unique kind of stress that only other parents can truly understand. We sit in community and share our successes and struggles while the kiddos are downstairs in class as well. 

Dharma Bum Kids classes are appropriate for children ages 6-12. In a fun learning environment, children are exposed to mindfulness, compassion, peacefulness, awareness of emotions, and much more through stories, play, and art. We will also have a supervised toddler watch area where they can play while parents get a chance to recharge.

Please arrive early so there is adequate time to transition kids to classes so we can start on time. We will also be planning gatherings, social activities and camping trips to bring our community together. It takes a village!
