Wesleyan University has suspended all in-person classes and campus activities due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) public health situation. Therefore, all BFF of CT on-campus activities are postponed until further noticed.
– 10:00 A.M.
On Sunday mornings we offer families with children a nourishing environment to practice mindfulness and learn traditional Buddhist teachings such as compassion, interdependence, and gratitude. It follows the general format of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship’s regular weekly gathering, but in a shorter, more relaxed format, with elements tailored to children under 13. Babies and Toddlers (with parent or guardian) are welcome too! We try to be as inclusive as possible.
No experience necessary with Buddhist teachings or meditation practice. All are welcomed.
Please dress comfortably and bring your own meditation cushion/mat. Younger children are welcome to bring a stuffed animal for “buddy breathing” meditation. Refer to our Meetup Calendar for any updates/changes.

About the Unique Meditation Space
The meditation space is unmatched in Connecticut. You might have to go to Japan to experience a similar traditional atmosphere. The room is adorned with lightly colored wood with traditional designs that create a serene ambiance that soothes the mind and senses. An entire wall is a clear glass window that overlooks a spectacular Zen garden and adjacent tatami room.
