Growing Brave Family Program Spring Semester 

The 2nd Sunday of each month starting on January 10 and ending on April 11, 2021

Our Growing Brave family program for families with children between 3 and 12 years old is based on the Sitting Together curriculum developed by Sumi Loundon Kim.

We explore Buddhist and Shambhala themes through play, music, art, and stories while incorporating simple, age appropriate mindfulness activities. We welcome families from any or no religious backgrounds to attend. 

In 2021, we will cover the ethics unit as well as the Shambhala culture unit. The ethics classes are based around the five precepts; the Shambhala culture classes serve as an introduction to how our lineage celebrates the seasons.

Growing Brave classes are every 2nd Sunday, from 11 AM to 12 PM. The spring semester runs from January through April.

Not harming and compassion

Each class can be attended without having attended any of the other classes - and newcomers are always welcome. Children who complete a topic series will receive a pin.


Price: $30 online for the whole semester, or $10.00 for each class the day you attend

To help make lessons age-appropriate, we will sometimes split children who can read (approx. grade 1 and above) into a breakout room after the opening ceremony. 

When you register, please register once per family and indicate the number of children and adults in the comment box. 

How to pay: 

The best way is to sign up before the first class and pay $30.00 online for a whole semester. (A PayPal or credit card link pops up after you register.) You can also bring cash or check to the first class.

For those who do not want to attend a whole semester, you can pay $10.00 for each class on the days that your family attends.
