With Mitchell Hoffsteader and Betsy Thomson
What I love when I teach meditation to children is seeing how calm and happy it makes them. Children have fun learning meditation because they feel the positive changes and benefits quickly. Kids light up when they learn there is a way they can find "their own calm quiet place inside" all by themselves.
When I teach mindfulness to children I incorporate activities that are art oriented - games, music, stories, yoga/movement, and meditations. Mitchell teaches when he is able through his drawings, letters, and audio recordings. I also like teaching teachers and parents. This is important too. Once they learn how to meditate they can help children to better understand the concepts and qualities of mindfulness. What better way to start a class or morning at home than with meditation together. How nice it is to end an evening with everyone meditating before bed.
Feel free to contact me for more detailed information about my teaching experience, fees, and availability. I can also help set up a mindfulness program at your school or organization. If you are a parent, we can discuss ways to incorporate mindfulness into your home life. Mitchell is full of great ideas. We love hearing from kids too!
" If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation." ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama
