Teaching Kids Meditation with Lorraine Murray
It was a privilege to have Lorraine Murray from the UK at the Children's Garden studio, early Fall 2016, along with several trainees gathering from Canada, the US and the UK.
The mysteries of teaching children meditation were unraveled as we explored many different methods to engage children of most ages and abilities in the pursuit of finding the gift of inner calm. Lorraine's lyrical voice mesmerized us as we, too, took to understanding, not only the benefits of mediation for children, but a greater understanding of ourselves. We came away with many insights and skills to assist us on this journey. Lorraine has written two books available from Amazon.ca Calm Kids: Help Children with Mindful Activities and Connected Kids: Help Kids with Special Needs (and Autism) SHINE with mindful, heartfelt activities. Both books are well worth a read.
Barbara continues to offer mindfulness in all of her yoga classes and can be booked for special "playshops" on how to bring meditation, mindfulness, yoga and other heart-centred moments into the lives of children you know and love, whether you are a parent, caregiver, educator or are someone simply interested in moving toward a more harmonious, peaceful planet. Don't be surprised if you find that you, too, "become the change you wish to see" as the children reflect back to you, the wisdom you first thought you would impart to them. Consider booking
