Peaceful Minds, Happy Families Weekend

dharma for childrenMay 7 - 10, 2020  

(Bank Holiday Weekend)

An opportunity for families to meet, relax and enjoy a fun weekend with a difference in peaceful surroundings.

The activities, which include drama, art, and outdoor games, are designed to help children develop the skills of how to maintain a happy mind - even when things don't go our way.

The weekend also offers both children and parents an opportunity to discover the practical value of periods of silence and quiet contemplation: meditation for all the family. All families are welcome, whether Buddhist or not.

Manjushri Family WeekendBased in the Lake District, Manjushri KMC has a Historic House set in 70 acres of lawns and woodland with a lake, streams, extensive paths and an enchanting beach on the shores of Morecambe Bay - not to mention the first Temple for World Peace. There’s no better place for a family break!

The family weekend will begin on Friday in the evening with supper and finish on Monday with lunch.

Practical Info

The programme of activities is ideally suited for children aged 6 – 12 years, priority for this popular event will be given to families with children within this age group.

Onsite accommodation options are only available for those booking for the whole weekend.

Activities are intended for whole family participation, and Manjushri KMC is unable to provide child care facilities. All children participating in the activities must be with a parent/care giver.  We are a large site open daily to the public, for safeguarding reasons we therefore require that children are under the direct supervision, and remain the responsibility of, their parents/caregivers at all times.  For insurance purposes, Manjushri KMC and NKT-IKBU cannot take responsibility for your child.

All meals provided are vegetarian (may contain dairy and eggs), with a  wheat-free and/or dairy-free option available at the time of booking. We cannot guarantee that all ingredients in our meals are vegan and/or gluten-free, and so are unable to offer those as options.

If you would like more information, or to discuss further, please contact our reception team , 01229 584 029, who will be happy to answer your questions.
