    Room: West Auxiliary Rooms

    Dragon Club is our new YOUTH program aimed at meeting the needs of students ages 9 through 12.  This is a great opportunity for youth to slow down, unplug and connect with others to explore questions and curiosities that are meaningful.  Through discussion, meditation, and creation Dragon Club will help youth:

    • develop inner strength, confidence and compassion,
    • realize the basic goodness of all sentient beings,
    • come to know the six paramitas and the four dignities of Shambhala, and
    • relax in coming to know themselves.

    The activities offered in the Dragon Club program are engaging while also allowing for spaciousness, seldom permitted in today’s world. Everyone can be who they are in that moment: creative, active, joyful, or just quiet and observing.

    Cost: $10 per participant, or Free as part of your Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver FAMILY Membership
