I've been writing a little less this summer, with the kids home from school, but here's two new articles since the last newsletter was sent out. Be sure to check out the forum poll associated with the second article.
Buddhist-Inspired Coloring Sheets
Whether you are a teacher or parent, coloring pages are a great tool for teaching children about Buddhism. And for adults, coloring Buddhist mandalas is an excellent form of meditation and stress management.
The Five Buddha Families
The conceptual framework known as the 'five Buddha families' is a way of understanding the energies at work in our own minds and personalities, as well as in the world at large. Come find out what 'family' you belong to.
Visit the forum to participate in the poll about which Buddha Family you think you belong to. Yes, you have to register to participate in the forum, but no you will NOT be spammed!
As always, feel free to send me any requests or feedback.
