On the first Sunday of each month, 10 – 11 am, Green Gulch Farm offers a special program for families, currently held remotely due to Covid-19.
Our program begins at 10 am with a family-friendly meditation. Our time together provides an opportunity to practice as a family sangha and discover creative ways for integrating Zen practice into our family systems. Activities may include mindfulness-based art projects, storytelling, movement, or ritual.
Ages: Because this is a family program and parents/guardians participate alongside their young people, we welcome youth of all ages. The average age ranges from 5 to 12 years old but babies, toddlers, and teens are absolutely welcome and do join us regularly.
In our March program we’ll enjoy a guest visit from author Andrew Jordan Nance.
Andrew Jordan Nance has been an educator since 1990. He is the author of the bestselling book Puppy Mind, as well as the critically acclaimed books The Barefoot King, The Lion in Me, and Mindful Arts in the Classroom. He is the founder of Mindful Arts San Francisco, an organization that provides volunteer mindfulness educators to teach in San Francisco public schools. For almost thirty years he taught performing arts to students from diverse backgrounds, and for eighteen years he was the Conservatory Director at San Francisco’s New Conservatory Theatre Center. He is the recipient of the Points of Light Award, a national honor recognizing his volunteer efforts to bring mindfulness to youth.
