Publisher's Summary

If you are looking for a way to help your child decrease their anxiety while learning a skill that will improve their health and mental acuity in both the short- and long-term then Guided Meditations for Kids is the book you have been waiting for.

Inside you will find 10 imaginative story lines designed to teach children lessons on relaxing the body, self-worth, and positive affirmation. The meditations weave fun and creative play with valuable techniques that support a healthy mind and body. Children will learn tools that they can use for the rest of their life as they travel into such adventures as flying through space, becoming a big beautiful butterfly, or becoming friends with a peaceful dragon.

These meditations are imaginative and fun yet at the same time, they are utilizing deep relaxation techniques, body awareness exercises, intention setting tools, and positive affirmations. This series includes traditional meditation techniques such as a loving-kindness meditation and full body scan. The imagery included aids these techniques in encouraging the mind to further let go of tension in the muscles and of stressful thoughts.

Here are some of the takeaways from this highly invaluable guided meditation resource for children:

  • How to increase the power of their imagination and creativity through powerful fantasy-like guided imagery.
  • A step-by-step imagery script that can help you take your child in unknown yet much-desired lands.
  • Guided imagery for reducing stress and anxiety and making your child feel more relaxed, calm, and balanced.
  • Settings that vary from outer space to floating dandelions to smiling rainbow hearts (everywhere that children love to be).
  • How to start and end guided meditation sessions to help the child benefit optimally from it.
  • Keeping your child engaged and hooked throughout the meditation session by using kind words.
  • How to shape your child’s imaginations to create positive thoughts and mental images.

Meditations that include deep relaxation are extremely important practices for full health. Without restorative relaxation, where bodies and minds are led into full states of calm, the nervous system can remain stuck in the fight or flight mode of the sympathetic nervous system. As humans in the modern world, everyday stresses such as traffic or being late to school can register at the same level of stress and adrenal hormone release as safety being threatened by a predator.

However, stress and overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system can become harmful to health over time. Anxiety, tiredness, and digestion issues are just a few of the ailments caused by recurrent stress and heightened states.

Perfect resource for a mindful classroom

This book is just what I was needing!! As a 4th grade teacher who has been introducing my class to mindfulness, I was struggling with coming up with different activities to keep things fresh. I don't have to search anymore! This has such a great variety of mindfulness activities that I will be using with my students. So grateful for this resource.

Superb.

I will rate this one million out of 10. The lady has a soothing English voice and talks directly to your child (+ me, hubby and cats), yes the cats listen as well, and uses language that a child relates to. For example, if you have any worries from school or home then place them on the worry tree, or in the boat and let them drift away etc. My child (8) will regularly ask for this especially if not a 100% well or has had a challenging day at school.. Superb.

Great purchase

I have two daughters, 6 and 8 year olds. I do it with them before bedtime, and they both enjoy it. My oldest has ADHD and it teaches her to calm herself. It also helps them relax before bedtime. Definitely a great purchase.

Fantastic meditation for kids

Great way to teach children ways to manage their difficult emotions. I recommend listening to the same track several times before moving on to the next track, this way they get well versed in one technique/imagery and develop some mastery before jumping prematurely to another.

Valuable

The concept of acting with intention, rather than impulse has more value than any song I will ever teach. My students learn better when they're ready to learn, not when they come into my classroom feeling like they're at recess. Quieting the mind enables all of us to be present. When my kids are present, I don't have to constantly stop, redirect, reprimand, quiet them, etc. I combine this with other mindful activities and games.

Glenn has found a way that mindfulness can be applied to every aspect of a child's life. I will definitely be using the activities in this book with my own daughter and with the students in my kindergarten class.

MUST READ for teaching Mindfulness to youth!

Written in a very “down-to-earth” style, the information and activities are very approachable and easy to follow. The author includes many personal vignettes to highlight how to incorporate these skills into your everyday life. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a child/adolescent in their life.
