Join us for FAMILY DAY AND BODHI SCHOOL each month for ...

Children from Age 2 years  to High School
The goal of Bodhi School is to provide a gentle, safe and uplifted environment for children and parents to explore their heart and mind, learn to respect one another and develop confidence in basic goodness of all. Bodhi School is inspired by the view of Saykong’s vision of an enlightened society. There are 3 groups for the children:

  • Lions & Tigers (age 2 through kindergarten)
  • Garudas (grades 1-5)
  • Dragons (grades 6-12)

Parenting as Path Discussion Group
During Bodhi School, parents are welcome to join in this on-going discussion group. The discussion topics explore what mindful, loving, parenting is and ways to apply the principles of mindfulness and Shambhala culture in relating with one’s children.
