Mindfulness Lessons for Children: Video #1
We’re creating short animated videos for some of the audio recordings of my “mindfulness lessons” for kids. Here’s #1:
The Mindful Games Activity Cards Are Here!
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 working with Susan on an exciting project — presenting her mindfulness curriculum for children on the Mindful Games Activity Cards. The dynamic and engaging lessons, games, and songs used in Susan’s meditation classes for children are finally 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.

I’m happy to announce that John Rowe has completed all of the paintings for I Wonder. I went to visit John at his studio yesterday, and it was magical to be surrounded by all of the illustrations for the book – the paintings are truly spectacular!

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.
