Feel happy through meditation, story-telling and games. This class is aimed at both Parents and Toddlers. Toddlers will get the opportunity to try mini mindfulness meditations to develop inner calm, and play games to help them relax. There will be a 'story time' section focused on developing good qualities (such as sharing and dealing with unhappy feelings), as well as other inspiring activities to help them grow and learn to be peaceful. For busy parents and guardians, part of the class will be dedicated to simple, practical and effective mindfulness and meditation methods that address the real-world challenges faced by parents every day. This will include meditation to relax and refresh your mind, as well as engaging, practical teachings on topics relevant to life as a parent, and supportive discussion with like-minded, friendly parents and guardians. During the parent-focused part of the class, children will be involved with drawing activities, toys and games in the peaceful, inspiring setting of the temple. Families are welcome to stay after class for hot drinks and a chat. Classes are run on a drop-in basis. No previous experience of mindfulness or meditation is necessary, and no special clothing is required - just come as you are. Booking is advised. This class is intended specifically for parents and guardians with children aged 0-4. We look forward to seeing you there!
