Family Practice Program

Mountain Stream Meditation is offering an opportunity to join a monthly ongoing Family Program at the Nevada City Insight Center. 
If you and your family members are interested in attending the Family Program, please contact Juli Marks before the next meeting: Juli Marks: julim@nccn.net

For the past 3 years, once a month, a group of 5 – 6 families meet for a Family Program at Mountain Stream Meditation/Nevada City Insight Center. This is a sweet co-created program that can include the Mountain Stream teachers and staff but is managed, organized and created by the parents and families themselves. Everyone is invited to participate!

During our Sunday morning meetings, we explore how the practice and teachings of mindful awareness can support the development of wisdom and compassion for children, teens, whole families, and the wider community. This is a child-friendly event and no prior experience is needed. More specifically, we sing, meditate, read stories and do activities around a common theme associated with the 8-fold path (a foundational Buddhist teaching.) We finish our gathering with shared food and conversation.

The intention of our Family Practice Program is to offer teachings and support for a daily mindful practice that provides spiritual growth and understanding for children, teens and parents.

In honoring the Buddhist tradition of generosity (dana) there will be a donation basket available at the end of each gathering. All contributions received for Mountain Stream Meditation support the weekly and monthly programs held at the Nevada City Insight Center.

Community Practice Evening

Community Practice Evening – Feb & March
2nd 3rd & 4th Thursdays - 6:00 to 7:15 pm
(First Thursday is Sound Healing Meditation 6-7 pm)
Evening Facilitators: Marcia Craighead and Jennifer Scott

Join Mountain Stream’s Dharma community on Thursday evenings as we explore the question: “How are you - within your practice?” By coming together to meditate and engage, we strengthen and build community with a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. All levels of meditation practitioners are welcome. 

We begin with a quiet sit for 20 minutes, followed by a facilitator’s offering of an inspirational reading (quote/poem/current event), then 30-45 minutes of Council which allows each person to mindfully check in about their current experience. Our time together concludes with an appreciation and metta (loving kindness.)

The Community Practice Evening explores various topics and issues of our time while holding these in the Buddhist principles of Non-Harming and Wise Speech. We engage, investigate and learn about the Buddha’s teachings from our own direct experience in a friendly, supportive environment.

Donations are appreciated for Mountain Stream/Nevada City Insight Meditation Center
