Mindfulness & Meditation for Children

photo by Ami Fountain

Mindfulness meditation helps children strengthen innate abilities while exploring problem solving, focus, centering and using the power of awareness to direct their bodies and lives.

Mindfulness training with children is continually being studied and has been found to help reduce anxiety (life and school related) and pain while improving reading achievement and internal motivation1. Various forms of relaxation techniques are currently being used in schools to successfully reduce stress and increase the ability to deal with challenges23. Research continually demonstrates that both parents and children benefit from meditation and it can help reduce stress in parents of children with special needs.
