Families and Children

Monthly Zoom meetings continue to take place for parents only the third Sunday of each month (except January and July) from 1 to 2:30 pm.  Children and parent groups are not gathering in person until further notice. If you would like to be notified about when we will be starting again please contact us at [email protected]. Thank you!


Shambhala Families and Children flourishes at the Shambhala Center in Eagle Rock

Our family activities sprout from the Shambhala view that all of us have basic goodness.  When this view permeates the family experience, genuine confidence, kindness and compassion can naturally grow.

Currently, our “Present Parenting” group (parents only) meets online via Zoom the third Sunday of each month (except January and July) from 1 to 2:30 pm.  To build community among families, we will resume offering 2 5-month semesters each year later this year (2021) or next for families who apply, are accepted and pay ahead for a 5-month commitment.  At that time, parents will gather while children’s activity groups are happening (ages 2 thru 16), as we’ve done before.  Tuition is $130 per family for each 5-month session. If you need reduced tuition, we can work that out. There are also other opportunities for families to gather throughout the year.

If you are interested in applying for Family Groups, or you just want to be on our Families email list, please contact SMCLA Families & Children coordinator Todj Mandel at [email protected].
