Meditation and Buddhism for Kids
️ Sun 19 May • Sun 26 May • Sun 2 June
These classes include simple Buddhist teachings and meditations that revolve around children’s everyday experiences. They are designed to help them see things in a way that makes them calmer and happier. Classes also include a craft activity based on that day’s topic. In these classes, children learn simple meditations, as well as methods to calm their minds and deal with negative feelings. Suggested age range is 5-11 years. Children are to be accompanied by an adult. Booking is required.
Each year, as well as many other special events and retreats, Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia hosts the Australian Festival around the new year and the Australian Dharma Celebration around Easter. These special national events gather people from all over Australia together to enjoy meaningful spiritual holidays.
Join us at this year’s Australian Dharma Celebration where Gen Kelsang Rabten will grant the empowerment of Buddha Amitayus and give teachings on The New Eight Steps to Happiness. Amitayus means an immeasurable life span. When we open our hearts to Buddha Amitayus’ guidance, he will help us increase our wisdom, our merit and, most importantly, he will help us protect our most valuable possession — our precious human life.
This special ceremony will help us deepen our connection with Buddha Amitayus, giving us the confidence that we can make our human life truly meaningful by using it to progress on the path to enlightenment.
Following the blessing ceremony, Gen Rabten will give teachings on the book ‘The New Eight Steps to Happiness’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, offering practical insights into Buddhism’s beloved text ‘Eight Verses of Training the Mind’ by Tibetan Bodhisattva Geshe Langri Tangpa.
Enjoy this spiritual getaway and special opportunity to connect with the Australian Sangha.
