Seeing Past Our Agendas – How the Dharma Can Help Us Speak Skillfully with Our Children in These Times

Eastworks

Easthampton, MA 01027-2755

Sunday, June 4, 10am-12pm
The Parent Group at Insight PV is pleased to offer a Family Gathering. Parents and children will gather together in our meditation space for a gathering led by Adi Bemak. Adi is a dharma teacher, a parent, and a grandparent. Adi will lead us in a discussion about ways in which we can use our practice to see past our own agendas when it comes to our children and ourselves as parents. We will explore how to use wise speech to talk skillfully with our kids during these times that leave so many of us feeling stretched and overstimulated.
We will do some mindfulness exercises, then Insight PV will provide childcare at a nearby space within Eastworks where kids can work on an art project, as well as just play and be together. Adi will stay with the parents during this time for a 20 minute sitting followed by our topic discussion. For the last half-hour the children will re-join their parents in the meditation space for music, sharing, and snacks.
If you would like to join us, please email Johanna at callardj@gmail.com to let us know how many children and adults will attend. Suggested donation is $8-20 for Insight PV at the door plus voluntary donation for Adi. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. This event is accessible to the handicapped.
