Book Description

Jan. 1 1999
Meditation can help children cope with the intensity of their feelings and the pressures in their lives—among family, with friends, at school. It gives even the youngest kids enhanced self-understanding, and is especially valuable for adolescents navigating the emotional peaks and valleys that emerge during that tricky period. That’s why parents, teachers, and anyone involved with young people will welcome this invaluable guide, which teaches them the techniques needed to work with children ages five to eighteen. The astonishing benefits range from relieving shyness, anxiety, and tension to reducing hyperactivity, aggression, and impatience. Meditation has also proved useful in treating asthma, insomnia, and depression, in improving concentration and creativity, and in establishing balance throughout a child’s life.

I am founding a school for young children and plan to use meditation techniques in the classroom. This book is a well written, clear, non-dogmatic and yet profound discussion of the power of meditation and meditative techniques for children and adults alike.

I purchased this book to help me formulate my own approach to teaching meditation and mindfulness to my own children. The exercises are simple and effective - easy to teach to children. I appreciate the extra efforts made to provide documentation to the material.

I recommend this book to anyone looking to incorporate meditation into their own life and the lives of children, whether as a parent or as a teacher.
