Dharma School

Dharma School Overview
Ages 3 to 9

Currently, we have Dharma School almost every Sunday, thanks to our Dharma School leader volunteers. If you are interested in leading Dharma School on one or more Sundays a month, contact our Minister Assistants.


Dharma School during services for children to relax, learn and enjoy!

Welcome to the Spokane Buddhist Temple! We offer a half hour class time for children ages generally 3-9 years old during the services.

Children are invited to attend our Dharma School time during the service, usually after the reading of the Golden Chain near the beginning of our service.

Our classes include temple etiquette lessons, a short guided meditation time, a dharma school lesson based on Buddhist teachings and holidays, and sometimes we have a craft or activity relating to the lesson.

Classes are taught by dedicated volunteer teachers and assistants. There are generally one or two adults for each Dharma School session.

Each week please sign your child in before the service and out at the end of the service, and make note if your child has any food allergies or medical conditions we should be aware of, as we might have snacks at the end of our time together.

We welcome and encourage parents, guardians, and/or older siblings to join us anytime.
