Happy Independence Day!

The Parent Meditation Group is shifting its current offerings away from parent sittings and towards family gatherings. Our first four gatherings are listed below. They'll be a time for parents and children to cultivate mindfulness with meditations, songs, stories, activities, and crafts. Some gatherings will be parent-led, others will be teacher-led. There's no age restriction. More details will follow. Please save the dates.
