MORE ABOUT BUDDHA BLOSSOMS
LEARNING PROGRAM

Buddha Blossoms is a joyful and play-centered learning class where young children can explore and grow through movement, play, and mindfulness. In our peaceful and playful space, rich with imaginative materials, the teachers support the children’s:

  • curiosity and delight in the world;
  • awareness of their physical bodies through movement;
  • love for learning and a sense of their own capacity to learn;
  • language development;
  • social and emotional skills as they learn about friendship, communication, navigating their own emotions and those of others, and more;
  • problem solving skills; and
  • sense of self and imagination.

The class is directed and taught by a teacher with extensive experience with young children, a graduate degree in early childhood education, and a strong mindfulness practice. The assistant teacher is a Kundalini yoga instructor. Learn more here.


“I believe that one of the most deeply human, and humane, of [the human] faculties is the power of the imagination: so that it is our pleasant duty, as librarians, or IMG_0015teachers, or parents, or writers, or simply as grownups, to encourage that faculty of imagination in our children, to encourage it to grow freely, to flourish like the green bay tree, by giving it the best, absolutely the best and purest, nourishment that it can absorb. And never, under any circumstances, to squelch it, or sneer at it, or imply that it is childish, or unmanly, or untrue.”
-Ursula K. Le Guin (1993)
