MEDITATION FOR CHILDREN by Shelley Wilson Introduces Visual Mindfulness to Children
By: BHC Press
"The value of meditation has been written about many times, but it is predominantly targeted at adults. I wanted to create something for children that could be enjoyed as a family, or even as a classroom activity, which benefited both adult and child," says author Shelley Wilson. "The concept of Meditation for Children came about thanks to five-year-old Olivia, who asked me to write her a personal meditation because she couldn't come along with her mum to our meditation classes because it clashed with her bedtime!"
Storytelling is a magical experience for children. It creates a wonderful atmosphere that entertains. The visualizations in Meditation for Children are written much like a story and are designed and written specifically for young children aged five to nine years old. These meditations will help children access creative abilities through relaxation and imagination, and also help them develop the necessary tools needed to create lifelong and healthy habits of managing stress and anxiety while also improving learning skills.
These guided visualizations are a simple way to introduce children to mindfulness. Illustrated with vibrant drawings and includes a guide with easy-to-understand instructions.
