What we're about
“…educating children with warm hearts and clear heads; children who will one day help to create a more compassionate, intelligent and peaceful world.”– Inspired by the words of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
What is Buddhist Family Practice?
Buddhist Family Practice is an opportunity for families with children to practice mindfulness and learn traditional Buddhist teachings such as compassion, interdependence, and gratitude. It follows the general format of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship’s regular bi-weekly gathering, but in a shorter, more relaxed format, with elements tailored to children under 13. All ages are welcome!
Where and when do we meet?
We meet at the Wesleyan University Campus in Middletown, Connecticut, at the same location as the regular Buddhist Faith Fellowship gathering:
College of East Asian Studies
343 Washington Terrace
We generally meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 9:00 A.M. Please check our calendar for updates and to RSVP.

Our practice is run by volunteers, but we have to pay for the room and other program costs.
A donation of $10 per family is suggested. (Checks can be made payable to BFF of CT.)
The BFF is incorporated in the State of Connecticut and registered as a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible.
