CHILDREN’S PROGRAM – SUNDAY, MARCH 19

The children’s program at Stone Creek takes place once a month, on the 3rd Sunday of the month, concurrent with the Sunday morning program from 10:00 – 11:30 am. A large portion of the program will be outside. Please dress for the weather.

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Chelsea True and the Joyful Mind Project. Chelsea has been sharing mindfulness practices with children since 2007.

Suggested donation is $10-20 per family.  Please contact Stone Creek in advance if you would like your child to participate. Please spread the word!

FAMILY PRACTICE EVENT: WINTER SPIRAL – FRIDAY DECEMBER 16

4:30 pm

In the Zen tradition, the awakening of the Buddha is celebrated in December. It is said that after sitting through the night, upon seeing the morning star, the Buddha realized awakening and exclaimed, “That’s it! That’s it! That’s me that’s shining so brightly. How wondrous, how wondrous! All beings share this indwelling light. What an astonishing thing has been realized!”

On December 16th, Stone Creek and The Joyful Mind Project come together to combine the western Winter Spiral for our celebration of the light that each child, and every being brings into the world.  In this quiet, meditative event, each child has a chance to walk the spiral carrying her/ his candle: first turning inward to receive the light, then turn back outward, to bring their light to illuminate the world.
