One day children course at Dhamma Nilaya presentation

Courses for children, adolescents and young adults at Dhamma Nilaya are held in French only!

One day Anapana classes for children between the ages of 8 and 15 years (and sometimes between 8 and 18 years) are held at Dhamma Nilaya on Sundays (see dates).

Children learn the technique of Anapana,  (the observation of natural breath), by following instructions given in French but introduced in English by Goenka,  whose voice is heard throughout the course.

On these days, the children pledge to follow the moral code. The course ends with a Metta session where children learn to share and cultivate caring love.

Whether for the children or for the servers, the time spent in the peaceful atmosphere of Dhamma Nilaya  is always a joyful and rich learning experience.

May the seeds sown there germinate and grow.
