Fall Youth Practice – Oct 2-Dec 11

Youth Practice Grades 1-6
With Andrea Farley Spangler
Oct 2-Dec 11, every other Sunday, 9-10:30am CT

We will be hosting Grades 1-6 in person every other Sunday from 9:00 to 10:45 AM, while the parents/guardians are in the zendo for the Sunday service. For the children, we do the first 40 minutes or so as a sort of interactive slideshow with various group activities. We have a Zoom option for the first part, for those who need or want to participate remotely. You can can get something of an idea of what we do from our resources page. The second 40 minutes, for those who can come in person, are mindful activities such as art, games, stories, or outside activities, where the kids can choose what activities they’d like to join.


  • Patron Level: $1,200 (covers Youth & Family Leader salary, Clouds admin/staffing, and makes it possible for more families to participate who cannot afford the full amount) 
  • Value Level: $700 (covers Youth & Family Leader salary, and Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Basic Level: $400 (covers Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Your Level: Choose your price according to your means – no one turned away due to inability to pay 

The total cost of Youth & Family Practice for the year is about $39,000. Almost half of this is the compensation for our part time paid staff and the other half is the portion of the administrative expenses, mortgage and depreciation associated with this program (about 10% of the total). Because we believe that serving youth and families is so important, Clouds in Water has made the commitment to provide this service. Let’s do this together! Please consider carefully what you will give as you register your child for this program. We are also reaching out to non-parents to help with donations.
