For the duration of the course, children and young people should agree to follow moral rules of conduct. These provide a good foundation for meditation. Children listen to instructions and short lectures given by the teacher S.N. Goenka. The schedule consists of half-hour meditations, which alternate with creative and physical activities. Children's course teachers lead the meditations and give individual instructions or explanations when necessary. Course assistants are available to supervise the children, attend to their concerns and organize the activities.
