of you are aware that simple practices of mindfulness and kindness
contribute greatly to our ease and development. This is as true
for children as it is for adults.
The program's goal is to provide children with mindfuolness and related
skills that will be useful to them whatever their future holds.
We do this because it is helpful to them, and because it furthers
values we stand behind: Kindness to self and others, a
recognition that we are all connected. These are values common to
all spiritual traditions and to humanistic secularism as well. We
teach these as universal values.
A special feature of this program is that instruction is also available
for parents. You are invited to attend the simple yet profound
guided meditation held every Sunday from 11am until Noon which is
appropriate for the entire community, led by long-time practitioners of
Dawn Mountain. This will further support you in furthering
mindfulness at home with your children. We encourage your
Dawn Mountain is very pleased to offer these opportunities to your
families. We appreciate very much your participation through
giving your time, effort, and good will. because there are
expenses involved for Dawn Mountain, we also greatly appreciate your
donation of $10-$20 to defray the costs of these programs. Most
important however, is making these core principles available to
children, and we welcome your participation regardless of funds.

is the energy to live fully in the present moment. Dropping into
this moment brings inner balance. Inner balance means we can
connect deeply with others. Connections means we are not

course focuses on the basics of establishing a meditation practice:
calming and focusing the mind, developing mindfulness of thoughts and
of the body, and establishing a daily practice at home. New meditators
are welcome to come and learn valuable life skills, seasoned hands are
welcome to refresh their beginner's mind. This summers course will
offer a focus on embodied mindfulness, emphasizing awareness of the
body as a way to stay awake to life. We will begin each session with
stretches and a tai chi movement performed slowly and with centered
attention. Participants will be encouraged to maintain their focus on
the body during daily life.
