Simple Meditation for Kids
"Somedays you just need a break. Maybe you don’t feel like playing with your siblings today. Maybe it feels like everything is making you upset. Or, maybe you just want something to do that isn’t running around. Meditation can be a fun way to make you calm and relaxed, and go on a journey without having to go anywhere. After all, imagination is a very powerful thing. So let's all calm down and try a meditation. Believe me, it works wonders." - Oscar
Before we start a short meditation, here are some helpful hints on how to create a relaxing space to play:
Make yourself a quiet space.
Someplace away from everyone else. Perhaps you can go to a room where you can close the door. Or maybe you’ll want to do this in your fort! Either way, you’ll want to be someplace you won’t get interrupted for a while.
Sit somewhere comfortable.
It can be the edge of your bed, a comfy chair, or even a blanket or pillow on the floor. Whatever you do, make sure you are sitting, because if you lie down, you might fall asleep!
Now let’s take some time to stay calm and enjoy this beautiful meditation found in Episode 5 - The Break. You can listen to the recording here, or have someone read it aloud.
