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:

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.
