Meditation for mothers of small children -- two short guided meditations by Ayya Sudhamma. Children/babies welcome. (No need to register them as "guests" of this Meetup.)
This is a chance to connect with other mothers, relax, and take a deep breath or two before continuing your day more happily.
At this point the meditation is for Moms/Grandmothers/Aunties with children, but if any interested family men contact us we can consider changes.
Meditation, social connection, playdate -- all at one time. It'll be fun!
• Optional social/teatime 9:45 am;
• Two meditation sessions 10:15-10:30 and 10:30-10:45 am (for a ½ hour total meditation for those not watching the kids); and
• Optional social/teatime for half an hour afterwards, ending by 11:15 am.
Regular meetings may be weekly, bi-monthly or monthly; this Saturday we will decide the future schedule.
***Another planned Moms' meeting, the one-time meeting "Calm Moms Meditation" planned for Tuesday morning January 7th, has been removed to make space to post another weekly meeting. But we can still meet that morning! Tuesday's schedule: Optional teatime 9:15-9:45 am (very informal, arrive anytime); Moms' Meditations 9:45-10 and 10-10:15 am; optional 2nd teatime 10:15-10:45 am. To RSVP just drop a note to organizer Ayya Sudhamma.***
At each meeting we can play by ear whether to actually include the children in our meditation session or to give them something else to do to keep them occupied – depending upon their ages, personalities and the day’s mood.
Kindly inform Ayya Sudhamma of special needs or any other heads-up, and bring any suitable toys/distractions if they may be needed.
Please understand that you must remain with your child; bring no more than two children unless you make advance arrangements; and bring only children who are free of any contagious illness.
All feedback is welcome!
