Junior Warriors!  First and Third Sundays of the Month . . .

In the context of Shambhala, a warrior is someone who has the courage to recognize life's tenderness and goodness.  The intention of Junior Warriors is to provide a space for children to recognize their basic goodness through mindfulness practices and community.

The program also provides parents with time to meditate during Public Sitting.  Junior Warriors is open to children in kindergarten or older.  Children 8 and up will have a chance to do short meditation sessions in the main shrine room, as well as have a separate sharing group about mindfulness.

Junior Warriors will be guided by meditation instructors and parents: Mary Kubicki and Cary Weiner. The program typically consists of yoga, a Japanese tea/snack ceremony, a mindfulness/sensory-based activity, and a sacred circle.

Junior Warriors will be from 10-11am on the first and third Sundays of the month, beginning September 17, 2017.

A suggested donation of $5 per child per session will help us cover costs of snacks and materials.
