Courses for children and teenagers

One day courses in meditation for children aged 8-12 and one day courses for teenagers aged 13-16 years are held at Dhamma Bhumi, in Sydney, ACT, and other places in NSW on a regular basis. See the Course schedule for upcoming courses.

This is an opportunity for your child or teenager to learn Anapana meditation, which involves focusing on their natural breath. Learning Anapana will enhance their life and give them a real sense of peace and harmony for the years ahead.

Attending a course, together with their daily practice after their course of ten minutes twice a day at home, has been found to bring many benefits, including:

  • improved concentration and memory
  • increased awareness and alertness of mind
  • a feeling of peace and calm
  • greater self confidence
  • goodwill towards others.

To register

Please complete the online application form on the Course schedule in the teenagers’ & children’s course section. A confirmation email will be sent to you with details of what to bring, course times and the venue address.


There is no charge for the courses. All courses are funded by donations.
