HASH(0x9aaca77c) out of 5 stars wonderful resource June 22 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0x9a3d41bc) out of 5 stars secular meditation resource Feb. 4 2014
By Dakini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book takes a fairly secular approach to meditation, presenting techniques and examples to help parents and educators. I would recommend it mostly in conjunction with Child’s Mind: Mindfulness Practices to Help Our Children Be More Focused, Calm, and Relaxed by Christopher Willard and Planting Seeds: Practicing Mindfulness with Children by Thich Nhat Hanh.

HASH(0x9a3ffbf4) out of 5 stars Meditation Manual for Teachers and Parents Jan. 17 2013
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0x9aaca95c) out of 5 stars Warrior Mind! Dec 24 2008
By Mark Crane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read about the military using meditation to help their soldiers with PTSD and found this book on deep discount shortly thereafter. It's very interesting, and when I told my kids I was going to teach them "Warrior Mind" they got pretty excited and are into it so far. My daughter, seven, is especially excited.
