Children's Day and Winter Solstice 12/21/13 - 12/21/13
We welcome you to this celebration to express appreciation for all children. Children will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of decorating and craft projects, which will culminate in a special shrine room processional. Next, after a delicious and hearty lunch, the Karmê Chöling staff will perform a play for the children and families. Children are invited to bring gifts (new and unwrapped for a child up to age 14) that will be donated through the local fire department to children in need. Karmê Chöling is cheerfully decorated for this winter holiday, which marks the solstice. Our Children's Day Celebration is an opportunity to spend time with your children in a friendly and enriching environment. So join us for all or part of this special day. Please RSVP by registering online.
Aloka Children's Program 12/26/13 - 1/1/14
"Aloka", a Sanskrit word meaning "light" or "luminosity," is the name Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche gave to Karmê Chöling's children's program, which lives on today. Supported by a caring and nurturing staff who are grounded in their own meditation practice, children learn to expand their ability to be kind and compassionate to themselves and others. With both outdoor and indoor exploration, the children learn and grow through play, organized activities, arts, physical activity, and interacting with peers. Parents must register for another program at Karmê Chöling during this time. We have several programs running from the evening of December 26-the morning of January 1. Children's programming will provided during the primary daytime hours for programs. If activities for your children are required during additional hours, we are happy to assist in finding staff or local sangha members to care for children for a fee.
