Program Details

Bodhi School


October 6 / 10:30 AM - October 6 / 12:00 PM

Bodhi means “awake”! Bodhi School provides school-aged children aged 6 - 11with a spiritual education in the tradition of Shambhala Buddhism. Bodhi School lets children touch into their basic goodness in a nurturing and fun environment and experience their world more fully, as a way to instill confidence and kindness.

Each class explores a Buddhist or Shambhala theme through stories, games, crafts, child-oriented contemplations, mindful movement (like yoga), and a juice and cookie ceremony.

Classes are held once a month, usually on the first Sunday of the month from September - June.

While this program is held mainly in English, one of the facilitators is French-speaking, we have some material available in French and we’ll make every effort to make Francophone children feel at home.

Bien que ce programme se déroule principalement en anglais, l'un des animateurs est de langue française, nous avons quelques documents disponibles en français et nous ferons tous les efforts possibles pour que les enfants francophones se sentent chez eux.

For multiple children, please register once and pay the appropriate amount for all your children and email bodhischool@shambhalaottawa.ca to inform the teachers of the number of children attending.

Shambhala's generosity policy applies.
