A free introductory class will be offered Sunday morning in Davis as part of a Rites of Passage Program for children ages 8-12 and their parents and caregivers. The class runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Davis Shambhala Center, 133 D St. in downtown Davis.
“This program is designed to allow children to connect with their own inherent worthiness and goodness, and to cultivate mindfulness and compassion as they become individual members of society,” a news release said. “As this age is a transformational period when children naturally become more independent, we honor that by giving them tools and skills to work with themselves and others from a place of curiosity and genuineness.”
Through meditation, training in the contemplative disciplines of archery, flower arranging, calligraphy and poetry, the program will provide a framework for “potent transformation,” the news release said.
