Stress and anxiety are common struggles in modern day life that effect not only adults but also children.  Dharma Drum Mountain has designed a program to entertain children aged between 6 and 11 years old while introducing them to relaxation and the concepts of mindfulness through art, literature, and a wide variety of fun games. It can help decrease stress, anger and anxiety while increasing self-esteem and self-awareness. Dharma Drum Mountain is a Chan Buddhism non-profit organization located in Fremont focused on teaching Buddhist compassion and wisdom with the goal to achieve harmony and equanimity of the body and mind.
