Children’s Meditation Course at The Outback Community Garden on Sunday 14th August

A one-day course in Anapana Meditation for 8 – 15 year olds is coming up at The Outback Community Garden during the summer holidays.

Meditation can help improve focus and concentration, help with making good decisions, manage stress and emotions and provide a tool for life to help live more happily and peacefully. As well as learning to meditate, there will be fun and creative nature-based activities and games in the lovely environment of the Outback garden and education space.

The Outback Community Kitchen and Garden is situated behind the Jubilee Children’s Centre at Lightowler Rd, Halifax HX1 5NB.

The course will run from 9.30am – 4pm.  

Booking is essential and to register a child for the course, you can apply on the UK course schedule under ‘Children and Teenagers’ courses: Vipassana Meditation Course (dhamma.org)

There is no fee for the sessions but donations are welcome.

For any enquiries, please contact: kate.edwards@dhamma.org
