Family Weekend

March 6, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - March 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm


Morning Sun’s Family Weekends are inspired by seeing how happy the children are at our larger Summer programs, and how valuable it is for families to have a supportive practice community!

This retreat will include seasonal activities that nourish our connection to the Earth, our joy in simple things in life and our mindfulness practice.

During the weekend we will have time to practice all together, so parents and children can enjoy being deeply present with each other.

There will also be times when there will be separate programs. A fun and meaningful children’s and tween’s/teen’s program will be led by our children’s program staff.

While the children are in their program parents will have time to re-center themselves with meditation and relaxation, learn practices specific to parenting, and have time to share challenges and joys with each other.

The retreat will begin Friday evening and ends by 2:00 pm on Sunday.

Cost of the retreat is on a sliding scale:

per adult $100-160

per child $40-60


Accommodation prices are additional and vary according to choice of camping ($30), dormitory($80/adult, $40/child) or commuter (free).

Accommodation Cost

Dana (generosity)

Beyond the program fee, (which covers facilities, staff, administration and food) we ask for an additional contribution to directly support the retreat teachers. They guide and support the retreat in the spirit of selfless giving, to benefit all people, and they depend on this generosity for their livelihood. Our generosity also allows them to continue offering their service in the future. With a financial contribution we recognize that learning to bring mindfulness and compassion into our lives, and into our work, is one of the most important things we can do in the world.
Please consider making a contribution that is both substantially supportive to our facilitators and is one you can afford.

As a guide for an appropriate contribution, we suggest an amount between $50-100.
