That is pretty profound right? However, you may ask is it possible? Well, I’d say we don’t know until we try! And that this applies to all children. Who is with me?
What is meditation anyway? If you Google it, you’ll come across many definitions. I regard meditation as something that takes us back to the present moment, bringing awareness to our breath, acknowledging the thoughts and feelings running through our minds and setting them free, so we can just be.
Meditation can be challenging for both children and adults. I’d be lying to you if I said that your children will be able to keep still and centred throughout meditation, and that straightaway they will feel a continuos wave of peacefulness and positivity in between classes. I do however know that with continued practise with my-self in class and with yourselves continuing this practise at home with your children, we can begin to help children to build a routine over time to amplify the benefits.
In summary, meditation practise over time can help improve a child’s sleep, it can help them to manage their thoughts and feelings, balancing their energy and helping them to ultimately relax. If your children and yourself can come together to meditate at home, you will be at the beginning of something beautiful. A peaceful mind, a peaceful body, a peaceful life and home.
