Children's Class

The children’s meditation classes help to develop and nurture the positive qualities in children through meditation and positive thinking. With fun activities, games & art based on Buddhist philosophy these classes are designed to draw out the inner peace in your child and increase their positive minds of patience, respect for others, giving, and loving kindness. We look forward to seeing you.

Each class begins with guided breathing meditation to help the children let go of distractions and settle their mind.

The teacher will then tell a story and a short teaching to the children which is then discussed.

FAQ

Why do you charge for classes?

Prices per class are R90 and are free for members. As a nonprofit organisation, fees for classes and member contributions are our only source of income.

What if I don’t have money and I would like my child to attend?

Everyone can participate in the classes regardless of ability to pay. Nobody is ever turned away for lack of funds. Please speak to us.

Do I need to have experience in meditation or Buddhism to attend the classes?

No. All you need is the wish to improve yourself and the quality of your life.

Do I have to be a Buddhist to benefit from meditation?

No. Anyone can learn basic meditation and experience the great benefits. Buddhism is a non-evangelical religion. Buddhists respect all people, and are happy to help anyone regardless of whether they subscribe to another faith, or to none.

Do I need to bring anything?

You do not need to bring any mats or wear any special clothing. Comfortable chairs are used for seating. If you wish to take notes, please bring a pen and notepad.

I’ve been coming to drop-in classes for a while. Is there a class which goes into more depth?

For those who want to deepen their experience of Buddhism, we also have the Foundation Program. The Foundation Program (FP) immerses us in Buddhist teachings by studying systematically one of five texts on the FP curriculum.
