Family Days are a wonderful opportunity to spend the day connecting with your children, yourself and a community of supportive peers. Come play, share, learn and open your heart!

FAMILY PRACTICE PERIOD: A Program for the whole family
We start our morning with a program for everyone, weaving the theme of the day into songs, skits and family activities. We have plenty for your little ones with mindfulness geared toward children ages 4 - 10. We have added a program for older children, ages 11-14. Come and explore mindfulness with us!

During the second half of our day, youth ages 4-14 will attend age-appropriate groups with our experienced Spirit Rock mindfulness leaders. They will play, make art, sing songs and practice mindfulness together.

Parents of children ages 4 and older will have an opportunity to meditate, hear a talk related to parenting as practice, and connect with one another through group discussions.

Please bring lunch and something to share for communal potluck.

Pre-registration requested so we can plan ahead, especially for the kids' activities:
