Mindfulness Meditations For Children: Mindful Seeing*
In this exercise, children pay close attention to the experience of seeing. Before sitting down to listen to the meditation, find a small rock or stone for children to use as a “focus rock”.
In the first version below, during the meditation, I briefly talk about the unique qualities of the present moment. For repeated use, the second version has this portion of the recording omitted so that children can choose not to listen to it every time.
Note to parents / educators: Before the meditation, you can make a fun outing of going on a walk to find a special rock!
*Mindful awareness exercises help children develop concentration and self-awareness.
All of my guided meditations are from my InnerKids classes and are designed for children ages 6-10.
