 About the Retreat

Children's Retreat at Pema Osel Ling, held June 11-15, in conjunction with Guru Rinpoche Seven Treasures Retreat, June 10-16, offers families a means of connecting with the Dharma in an authentic, practice-oriented environment, while providing special care and attention to the needs and capacities of young family members ages 4-15. Children must have at least one parent in attendance at Drupchen. Parents take turns assisting with the Youth Retreat.

 

Pema Osel Ling's Children's Retreat is an opportunity for children to learn about the Dharma with age-appropriate activities in a supportive and fun environment while their parents attend Drupchen retreat. Activities include a morning puja and tsok, and dharma lessons from experienced dharma practitioners or lamas. There are also fun, dharma-related art projects and hands-on activities (torma-making, mudras, learning the instruments, doing life release, etc). Each day ends with children joining the parents and Sangha in the Shrine room for Tsok and Sacred Dances. The children who have come to summer retreat over the years have made very special friendships and have learned about the many aspects of Buddhism.


The benefits of Children's Retreat to both parents and children are easy to see. One of the long-time Children's Retreatants says, "The lamas teach me to do good things, think good things, and say good things. This helps me in my life and at school. I love kids' retreat!"
