Prayers for World Peace & Dharma for Kids

Join us for a light and inspiring meditation, Dharma talk and prayers on Sunday mornings focusing on developing inner peace.

Without first developing inner peace, world peace will remain impossible to achieve. We all have within us the potential for peace and happiness. Cultivating this potential creates the harmony we seek. Classes include clear teachings, meditations, and prayers. Drop in anytime, everyone is welcome.

cost: Free – donations welcome

Class in conjunction with Dharma For Kids ages 4-10

The “grown-ups” can join Resident Teacher, Kelsang Chenma for Prayers for World Peace class upstairs, while the kids  join us in the youth room for their own meditation and teaching. Of course, parents are welcome to join the kids for if they so choose.

Class format:

Class is 11am-12:30pm.
A typical class will include – Singing “The Liberating Prayer”, making water offerings to Buddha, engaging in a short meditation, stories read from kid’s Dharma books, arts & crafts or coloring activities, outdoor games (weather permitting), healthy snack and clean up.  All while trying to show children how to use basic Buddhist principles of patience and kindness to get along with each other.

    It was interesting and "enlightening" to learn a more in depth way of looking at patience. We seem to often mistake endurance or suppression of anger as patience when it's not. Chenma shared with us that patience is "happily and whole heartedly" welcoming any situation. Gives me much to contemplate and the teaching was, as usual, spot on.

    The thoughts we follow when we have a feeling of anger can either lead us deeper into anger or away. In class today we talked about how to rely on patience and a happy mind as methods to solve our problem of anger.

    We had 5 kids in our class today and learned why we get angry and how we can keep our mind peaceful and positive by looking at the "Wheel of choice" instead of being baited by others or situations that seem to make us unhappy and angry.
