Families and Children


Shambhala Families and Children flourishes at the Eagle Rock center in Los Angeles.

This is where our volunteers who love working with children come up with various ways that children and their families can participate in creative activities that involve the arts, nature, and genuine communication. Inherent in all we do is the encouragement of mindfulness, just seeing and feeling the ways we can work with our own minds. Rather than being taught in a formal way, children learn best through their own direct experience of the world, including their relationships with others.

Changes in 2018:

For years our Family Groups have occurred each month on a drop-in basis.  Now, to build community among our families, we have 2 semesters this year for families who register and pay ahead for a 5-month commitment.  Sorry, our first semester is FULL.  Information on the fall semester will be up on this website during the summer.
If you have questions, please contact coordinator Laura Burnham at 4mindful.families@gmail.com.
