This event has now SOLD OUT and the wait list is full.

Family Days are a wonderful opportunity to spend the day connecting with your children, yourself and a community of supportive peers. Come play, share, learn and open your heart!

Family Practice Period:
We start our morning with a program for everyone, weaving the theme of the day into songs, skits and family activities. We have plenty for your children, with mindfulness activities geared toward youth ages 4 – 10. We have added a program for older youth, ages 11-14. Come and explore mindfulness with us!

Youth Program:
During the second half of the day, youth ages 4-14 will attend age-appropriate groups with our experienced Spirit Rock mindfulness leaders. They will play, make art, sing songs, and practice mindfulness together.

Parents’ Program:
Parents of children ages 4 and older will have an opportunity to meditate, hear a talk related to parenting as practice, and connect with one another through group discussions.

Preregistration required so we can plan ahead, especially for the kids’ activities.  This is a popular event that usually sells out, so register early!

Volunteers are needed to assist with the event and attend free of charge; children are welcome to volunteer alongside an adult. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information at
