Guided Meditation – For Children

Do you meditate? Do you meditate with your child?

Sam Harris posted a series of guided meditations that his wife Annaka Harris created for Inner Kids, which is a group run by Susan Kaiser Greenland focused on teaching kids how to be more mindful through guided meditations. (See: http://susankaisergreenland.com/ for more details)

I haven’t yet tried these guided meditations with my son yet, but I am linking to them here - http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/guided-meditations-for-children

Learning how to calm your mind and focus your thoughts is what mindfulness is all about. To me, this is a basic life skill.  My son is anxious a lot and I have taught him how to breathe, smell and use his senses to focus his mind and calm down.  I have even taken him to a meditation center to learn in the kids group.  The problem is that a lot of meditation comes with supernatural concepts, which is why I was so excited that Sam Harris shared these links to guided meditation for kids that is secular!

Here is a video about it
