Mindful Games Is Out!
I have been volunteering for Susan Kaiser Greenland’s Inner Kids Foundation since 2005, teaching mindfulness meditation to children in schools. This year I had the privilege of editing Susan’s new book, Mindful Games, a book that presents her Inner Kids curriculum in a simple, accessible format. The engaging lessons and games used in Susan’s mindfulness meditation classes for children are finally be available to the broader public!

Mindfulness For Children #3: Mindful Breathing
Here is another guided mindfulness exercise for children from my InnerKids class.


Mindful awareness exercises help children develop concentration and self-awareness. In this exercise, children are guided through a process of paying attention to their breathing. There are two versions of the guided exercise – the first is the full exercise and is intended for children who have had some practice, and the second is a slightly modified version for beginners. They are both designed for children ages 6-10.

Mindfulness For Children #2: Mindful Hearing
Here is another exercise from my InnerKids class, designed for children ages 6-10.

Mindful awareness techniques help children develop concentration and self-awareness. In this exercise, children are guided through an experience of paying attention to sounds. After some practice, children may find this exercise to be helpful in their daily lives – before doing homework, when they are having difficulty settling down at bedtime, or at other any other time when it would be useful to settle the mind.

Mindfulness For Children #1: Friendly Wishes
Some of you have asked me to share more of my work with InnerKids, so have posted a few of my guided visualization podcasts for children.

Mindful awareness exercises help children develop concentration and self-awareness. The exercises I have chosen to share are called “Friendly Wishes”, and they focus specifically on developing compassion, in addition to concentration and awareness. They are designed for children ages 6-10.
