During the course, the children will learn how to practice Anapana meditation, which helps children better understand themselves and how their minds work. As children learn to calm and concentrate their minds, they gain mastery over their impulses and actions. Their ability to concentrate becomes enhanced, their memory gets sharper and they become calmer. In general, they feel that have a practical tool to use in the face of any type of challenge. According to the tradition of pure Vipassana, courses are run solely on a donation basis, but pre-registration is required
