The New York Vipassana Association holds children’s courses at the NYC Dhamma House. These courses are specifically designed for boys and girls in the 8 to 12 age group. The children learn anapana meditation, with guided instructions for periods of up to 30 minutes. Throughout the day, there are also stories, discussion sessions, snacks, games and art activities. It is not necessary for either children or parents to have meditation experience.
For more information, visit our regional Children’s Course page. To enroll in courses, parents or guardians and children should complete the children’s course application form, along with permission and medical emergency forms.
The next children’s course in the New York City area will be held April 29th. For information on local courses or to learn how to serve, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
