It is a pleasure to lead investigations and enquiries into the faith of Buddhism. Feel the textures of the genuine artefacts, turn them over, play them and enquire. Smell the incense, create a special space. Listen to the singing bowl and Tibetan bells. Have a go! Roll the prayer wheel and gather inspiration. Learning about Buddhism. Learning from Buddhism.
Introduction to Buddhism: Sharing the calming effect of the singing bowl and Tibetan bells and the thought provoking elements of the Eightfold Path lead children into the world of a Buddhist. Time is spent reflecting on the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, and enjoying the colourful prayer flags. We also share the story of Siddhartha Gautama and look more closely at the Buddhist shrine with our superb artefacts for everyone to handle and examine.
An array of art work transpires from investigating Buddhism and children enjoy working together to create fabulous displays.
