Family Days are a wonderful opportunity to spend the day connecting with your children, yourself and a community of supportive peers. Come play, share, learn and open your heart!

He brings to this family event a generous heart and the ability to straddle both secular and spiritual worlds as he directs Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs in six Bay Area medical centers, has a PhD in Philosophy and Religion and lived 8 years in a Buddhist monastary.
FAMILY PRACTICE PERIOD:
A Program for the Whole Family We start our morning with a program FOR EVERYONE, weaving the theme of the day into songs, skits and family activities. We have plenty for your little ones with mindfulness geared toward children ages 4 - 9. We have added a program especially for older children ages 10 - 14 as well. Come and explore mindfulness with us!
During the second half of our day, children ages 4-14 will attend age appropriate groups with our experienced Spirit Rock "day-camp counselors." They will play, make art, sing songs, and practice mindfulness together.
Parents of 4-14 year-olds will have an opportunity to meditate, hear a talk related to parenting as practice, and connect with one another through group discussions.
