Teaching Children Meditation
Tuesday, July 27th, 2010 9:44 AM
I have been teaching children meditation for a while now, have written a book (though need to find a publisher) and decided to start running a course for adults on to teach simple methods to children.
What I find is that children are actually easier to teach than adults! Adults find that their logical mind puts up a fight. They want to use their imagination but they are so accustomed to using their logical mind that it is a struggle! Children are easy (usually) so if i ask them to imagine they are in a garden, then they do this - no questions asked.
The other interesting point i find is that when the adults calm down, so do the children. In fact I believe that children really are just responding to their environment (including the stress of adults around them) .... they just don't hold back. We've all walked into a room at some point in our life and thought "could cut the atmosphere with a knife". Children are even more sensitive but they don't keep quiet - they react strongly to this. So the more we realise that we have to calm down, the more our children will respond.
If you have any thoughts on this, please let me know. Or you can find out more about what we do...
