Meditation Retreat – Parents and Children Welcome
Join the Buddhist Sangha of Bucks County for a one day meditation retreat on Saturday, June 18th.
James Reis, the founder of the BSBC, will be returning to the Yardley Friends Meeting House with his wife Jeanne, who be leading a retreat from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can join us any time, not necessary to come for the whole day. There will be periods of walking and sitting meditation and a lunch break at noon.
Jeanne Reis is a long-time mindfulness practitioner trained in the Insight Meditation Society tradition. Her warm, relaxed style encourages a meaningful experience in our supportive company.
Meditate with us and Give Your Children (age 6-12) a Mindful Time Too!
Also we are offering the opportunity for children to accompany their parents or caregivers for the morning session of our June 18th retreat (9 am- 12pm). A member of our Sangha who is also a certified public school teacher will lead a children’s program.
This will be a time of games and exploration, a simple but profound introduction to mindfulness with child-tested techniques. This will not be an introduction to Buddhism, so families of all faiths (or none) are welcome to attend. This special children’s program will be held just down the hall from where parents will be participating, so you will be accessible if your children have any problem while with us.
We want to keep the group small so our teacher can easily relate to each child, so space is limited. Please register using this link by June 10th. If you have any questions or want additional information, see the schedule for the morning on this page, contact a board member if you attend our Monday night service, or contact us.
The BSBC does not charge fees for our services, but asks for donations according to how you value what we offer within your means.
