Here’s what’s in store for Free Family Day at KTD, Sunday, August 18, 2013 9 AM-2 PM:

The day will begin with a Welcoming Exercise in Mindful Music, led by Matthew Cantello that families will join in progress as they arrive. When all have gathered, Lama Karma Drodhul will teach on Milarepa, Tibet’s beloved poet, singer, and saint.

For the rest of the morning, Guest Artist and award-winning storyteller/musician/actor David Gonzalez and Bodhi Kids Team member dancer/singer/energy educator Marie Giguere will assist the children in creating a performance event inspired by Milarepa, composed of song, dance, games, nettle tea, and much more.  Parents will be invited to experience the event after lunch.

While the children are creating the performance event, parents will have activities of their own to attend.  Trish Malone, a social worker, psychotherapist, and Tibetan Buddhist practitioner, will lead a workshop on parenting in the Dharma. And Ani Chime, a monastic from Sweden currently in service at KTD, will co-lead with Trish  a workshop on “Practicing Dharma as a Family.”

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
