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
Wesleyan University,
343 Washington Terrace
Middletown, Connecticut

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.
