"If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation,
we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” ~ Dalai Lama

The Dharma Bum Temple is very pleased to provide a Family Sangha! In 2010, we started our Dharma Bum Kids & Teens Group. In 2017 we expanded this program and built a community around the family structure. We have classes for the parents, teens and younger kids.

Due to the pandemic, we currently meet via zoom (link on schedule page) every 3rd Saturday of the month from 9:00am - 10:30am. Parents come experience silent meditation and discussion with other parents. We will explore subjects such as patience, generosity, goodwill and virtue. 

(WHEN TEMPLE OPENS AGAIN)  - Meanwhile the kids (toddlers to teens) will have classes downstairs learning about compassion, patience and morality through reading, crafts and activities. Please arrive early to transition kids to classes so we can start on time. We will also be planning gatherings and social activities as to bring our community together. It takes a village! 

The Dharma Bum Teens group meets via Zoom every Sunday from 12pm-1pm. This group is led by the college kids from San Diego State University. Click here to learn more about Dharma Bum Teens.
