Bodhi School

October 28 / 1:00 PM - June 23 / 3:00 PM

Bodhi School is inspired by the view of Saykong’s vision of an enlightened society. The goal of Bodhi School is to provide a gentle, safe and uplifted environment for children and parents to explore their heart and mind, learn to respect one another and develop confidence in basic goodness.

The curriculum and activities of Bodhi School are based on the Shambhala teachings on basic goodness of self and society. These teachings emphasize the path and development of an individual as the essence of creating a culture in which everyone lives with diginity, confidence and kindness. Therefore, Bodhi School is open to and welcome all parents and children from any religious background to join in.

Throughout the curriculum, children will find a place to explore their authentic self, learn how to work with aggression, and understand and able to work with their emotions in life.

Some activities will be guided by a teacher while others involve mentoring the older children to take care of the younger to develop their leadership skills. Children will learn to respect safe boundaries in which they can be creative and have fun.
