What We Do
With the help of lay and ordained Buddhist sangha we learn how to increase wisdom, happiness and peace in our daily lives. Our skilled contributing volunteers support these teachings with concrete activities that children and families can relate to.
We build community through service while forging positive connections with local organizations and businesses. Each program brings in contributors who are true resources to children and families. Programs are free and inclusive to all.
Each Bodhi Kids program has a strong environmental component, encouraging the understanding of interdependence and compassion in action through fun adventures in nature. All snacks and lunches are vegetarian.
We listen to Buddhist teachings on why compassion is important. We then engage in mindfulness activities including meditation, sacred arts, environmental awareness and group support sessions that increase our inherent capacity for compassion.
