KIDS’ MEDITATION CIRCLE
60 Minutes – In Pyjamas
Cost: $40 for 1 parent and 1 child ($10 for each additional child)
Join us for our monthly Kids’ Meditation Circle. We invite kids 6-12 years of age to enjoy a night of Meditation in their pyjamas with their parents.
Meditation has been thought to benefit overall mental health in kids. Sitting in meditation allows children to tune into their body awareness & inner selves, contribute to better social interactions and can provide a restful sleep. In today’s busy world, meditation can help eliminate negative thoughts, worries, anxiety, and unhappiness.
Studies have shown that teaching kids mindfulness practices can build students’ attentiveness, respect for fellow classmates, self control, and empathy, all while reducing stress, hyperactive behaviour, ADHD symptoms, and depression (noted via The Chopra Centre). In addition, grades are shown to improve for students who participate in mindfulness programs.
We’ll start the hour with handing each child their very own meditation stone to keep and explain its importance and properties, as well as how they can use it. The circle will be lead with a special story book, (spirit/energy related and child friendly) followed by kid-friendly meditations. Your children will leave feeling refreshed and balanced, as will you.
