Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly

Join a free family program centered around mindfulness, meditation, and reflection aboard the 1885 tall ship Wavertree. Author Anu Sehgal presents her latest children’s book, I am a Lotus, which offers an exploration of the Lotus flower’s cultural significance, symbolizing resilience, persistence, inner strength, and humility.

After a reading, make bookmarks with a special message for mom that further explores the profound meaning of the Lotus flower. Participate in a brief family yoga session to experience Lotus meditation and movement (bring your own yoga mat; this program takes place on the metal deck of a ship). A henna artist will make lotus-inspired designs at the end of the program.

The tall ship Wavertree provides an ideal backdrop for this program. Much like the lotus flower, symbolizing resilience as it gracefully emerges from murky waters, Wavertree has faced challenging seas throughout her 139 years. Weathering dismasting and enduring years as a sand barge, the ship has been beautifully restored to serve as the iconic centerpiece of the “Street of Ships” at the Seaport Museum.
