"Peace School," an after-school program for 4- to 8-year-old children,begins its next session on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, at the Original Root Zen Center, 600 21st St.
Led by professional educators and Zen Buddhist clergy, the school is designed to help children develop peaceful ways of living in this world. Its curriculum is rooted in four key areas: empathy, compassion, altruism and loving-kindness. Peace skills are taught through art, music, words, nature, play, emotions and feelings.
Classes are from 4-5:30 p.m. on Thursdays through March 7. The six-week session costs $60 per student, and $20 for each additional sibling. The fee includes all class materials and a healthy snack.
