Sonas: Mindfulness for Children

  • Oscailt 8 Pembroke Road Dublin 4 Ireland

Sonas is a sangha (mindfulness group) to help nourish children's practice. 

Adults and children have the opportunity to learn simple mindful practices to help us live in the present moment.

Through sitting, walking, teatime and games, we will cultivate our peace and joy and learn to take care of our difficult emotions.

Good things to know:
• This afternoon is aimed for children aged 7-12 years (contact Orlaith for any questions).
• We all practice together. The best way to support the children is for grown-ups to practice with them: we offer our own experience as an example.
• It's not school. Often, people think that children aren't attentive enough, but if a child only gets 2% of the practice, that's more than they had before. Children get distracted and bored (as do we all), and in mindfulness practice we don't shy away from that. We get to be ourselves - whatever we're feeling. Above all else, our practice aims to nurture a kind, open environment for children.
• Children must be accompanied by an adult.
• Chairs, cushions and mats provided.
• €5 child / €5 adult
• All welcome
