KIND MIND, HAPPY LIFE
A program for Children - ages 5-10
Sundays May 4th - June 1st, 11:00am - Noon
The Dawn Mountain Children's Program is back!
Read what one parent had to say about the fall
Your program has had a profound effect on our girls.
Although they may not actively discuss what they've gained, they still
cherish and use the mindfulness lessons they learned and the concrete
objects associated with them. in the weeks and months since the program
ended, R and L have made some significant changes. L is far less
anxious than she once was--she has found ways to not just manage new
situations, but to enjoy them! And R has become a more adventurous
eater, humorously using her five senses to approach new foods as you
taught her in class. We make use of mindfulness in so many ways--we
even used your techniques on the girls' recent trips to the dentist
(which had been traumatic in the past)."
In these five one-hour sessions children will
learn simple techniques to help navigate stressful situations and
cultivate an appreciation and understanding of their own experiences.
While kids are in class, parents are invited to attend Dawn Mountain's
regular Sunday morning meditation session, led by advanced students and
senior members of our community.

CHANGING FOR GOOD:
How to Start or Stop, For Good This Time
the beginning of a new year we often find ourselves resolving to
change: stop smoking; eat (or drink, or work) less; meditate; exercise;
breathe... We've been taught we need will power to change, so when
we fail, we blame ourselves for lack of will power. But it turns
out that will power is not the only issue. This course will draw from
the wonderful work of James Prochaska who shows us that intentionality
is just one factor in creating the change we desire. Change is an
ordered process, and each stage of the process requires a different
kind of support.
In this series we'll learn more about the process
of change and avenues available to support that process. Our time
together will include lectures and Q&A's, simple guided meditation,
and small group discussions as we explore various resources for making
and sustaining meaningful change.

New sessions to be announced soon.
NOW AVAILABLE LIVE AND VIA BROADCAST
Saturday morning sessions are a chance to slow down our fast-paced
lives and learn techniques for living in the present. We'll practice
resting the mind on an object, recognizing and letting go of thoughts,
and cultivating a warm, open heart toward ourselves and others.
Everyone is welcome: new meditators, those looking
to reconnect with
the fundamentals of practice, those of every faith tradition (or none.
In short, all practitioners of life are welcome in these sessions.
