What do you do if you want to bring a mindfulness-minded spirituality to your children? Sumi Loundon Kim has answered that question with “Sitting Together.”

My biggest takeaways from this conversation:

  1. People outside of religion need a sense of meaning and belonging that spiritual connection provides.
  2. The “two for one deal” — It’s more important to work on your own development than your child’s.
  3. How to teach your child to regulate emotions.

Sumi Loundon Kim is the Buddhist chaplain at Yale University and founder of the Mindful Families of Durham. Originally brought up in a Soto Zen community in the 70s, Sumi has been a student of the Insight tradition since her teens. She is the author of three books, Blue Jean Buddha (2001) and The Buddha’s Apprentices (2005), and her mindfulness curriculum, Sitting Together.
