Mid-Winter Ritual: Blessing the Farm and Fields
On the first Sunday of the month, we hold a special program for families. This begins at 9:45 am with a quiet song circle outside the zendo. At 10:00 am, we enter the zendo together where the lecturer will address the children. Then families proceed into activities including farm projects, mindfulness, movement, and ritual.
Our program aims to help children cultivate attention, empathy, and understanding and utilizes attunement to seasonal rhythms to foster well-being. A Youth & Family Program Practice Guide is available in our bookstore and includes many ideas for practicing at home as a family.
Each program closes with a community building circle at 11:45 am, sharing delicious muffins from the Green Gulch Bakery. After the program, families are welcome to attend the farmers' market outside the zendo.
Please come prepared for the weather. We meet rain or shine and most of our programs are outside.
Suggested donation is $20 per family or as your means allow. No one turned away for lack of funds. A donation can also be made at the door.
