Here is a rough schedule of activities, a general guideline we will follow.  It can change and evolve. 🙂
10:00am  Families arrive.  Sing a song together
10:15am  pebble meditation and 5 minutes sitting meditation all together.
          Walking meditation all together.
10:20am  Kids go off with some parents and an adult to do activities
          such as learn a song or two, walk to the childrens play garden,
          make food or art, read or other things.
10:20am  Parents have silent or guided meditation and Dharma sharing.
11:10 or 11:15am Children join the adults for singing and maybe Dharma
                        sharing.
11:30am All who would like to, may come to the kitchen for a casual community snack/lunch.  You are welcome to bring something to share, but don’t  have to.  We will attempt to have 2 or 5 minutes of quiet mindful eating at the beginning with everyone, if we can.
