Heroes and Bodhisattvas: Celebrating Compassionate Action!

Parents, Caregivers, and Children ages 3 – 10

Join our family sangha as we celebrate the New Year! In this fun, kid-friendly program, we’ll explore the dharma through laughter and storytelling—and discover the heroes and bodhisattvas whose work is helping create joy, ease, justice, and equity in the world.

By focusing on what we can do during difficult times, we nourish bodhicitta—the mind that strives toward awakening for the benefit of all beings—and find a path for raising children that encourages and supports compassionate action and critical thinking.

Through our liberated family systems, transformation and healing can spiral outward into our greater communities, repeating liberating fractal patterns like seashells, sunflowers, and galaxies.

Materials needed:

  • Large paper for drawing
  • Colored pens or pencils
  • Journal + pen or pencil (please plan to bring this journal to each family program that you attend)

Content for this program will be kid-friendly, with children ages 3 – 10 invited (but not required) to join. Meikyo will also help parents and caregivers learn how to integrate dharma practice at home. Journal prompts will be provided during the program.
