We invite you to join us for the second annual IMCW Family Retreat! This engaging retreat is for families with children ages 5-13 and is open to both beginning and experienced meditators.
The retreat will include time for family activities as well as free time. Dharma activities will include skits, games, songs, art, yoga, a campfire, meditation, and dharma talks. There will be time for collective family practice as well as time for parents and children to have their separate activities. Children will be divided into age-appropriate groups, including a separate tween program, and adults will have blocks of time to practice sitting and walking meditation and engage in facilitated parent discussion groups.
There are 6 openings for adolescents age 14-20 to register along with their families as paying adult registrants. These adolescents will need to agree to be assistant 'Mindful Leaders' during the retreat to help lead children break-out groups.
