by Aruna Pawashe, lecturer, Yale University
There will be a free one-day children’s meditation course for ages 8-12, on Saturday, June 24 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. It will take place at the Harkness Ballroom/Lounge, 367 Cedar Street, Yale University,
A female teacher is coming from VMC Boston and a male teacher is coming from Florida. There is no course fee to students. If any parents wish to donate (service, food or monetary help) they do it willingly in their capacity. Registration is required.
This course, as taught by S.N. Goenka, offers children an introduction to Anapana meditation, observation of the natural breath to concentrate the mind. Young people who have started practicing this technique have realized many benefits. Their ability to concentrate is enhanced, their memory gets sharper, their ability to comprehend a subject improves, and they become calmer. In general, they feel they have a practical tool to use in the face of any kind of adversity or challenge. The course includes meditation instruction, art, games and storytelling. This course is given on a donation basis. Prior Registration is Required.
