Past Storytelling Events

What a visit includes

The sessions are based on our Dzogchen books for Kids and include:

  • an introduction to the on the fly meditation of short moments of strong mind.

  • interactive storytelling, engaging children to share their experience of stormy feelings and explore the choice to meditate for short moments. 

  • a perfect mix of stories with real life accounts of the practice and pure wisdom teachings, with prompts for discussion.

  • singing and melodies that go with the books and make key instructions memorable.

  • meeting 'Lucy Diamond' and other characters from the books in 3D!



“In a fast-paced world like the one we live in, it is not easy to maintain the peace of mind necessary to live our days happily. However, this becomes possible if we train our minds to be strong. (...) Learning such important values while readers are still very young will help them develop a calm and strong mind more quickly, and the benefits they will have throughout their life will be priceless.”

Interactive Stories

Through interactive stories, visuals from the books, songs and timeless wisdom metaphors, children discover what about them is always open and clear like the sky, their mind.


The sessions are humorous as we reflect on stormy feelings and life-changing in that one never forgets when they were pointed out their basic goodness!


We believe children have the birthright to have access to education in the nature of mind and it is a joy to provide this through books and stories.
