I had good intentions…
I wanted to write an post about perception and how we what we see and perceive is what we experience. It’s how our brain works and how it helps us interpret life.
If our brain is wired differently then it can be challenging to respond to life in the way we want to (until we become aware of this – aka having a meditation practice makes you aware of this!)
To celebrate the winter solstice and this amazing new year we are about to enter, we have teamed up with Arna Baartz from the I Am Program to offer
you a free meditation for you and your children.
The meditation is based on this beautiful picture of the chakras (energy centres) that can be useful to work with in meditation.
The meditation is recorded by me (Lorraine Murray) and there are 2 minutes of an introduction followed by a meditation that lasts about 14 minutes.
If you have really young children then encourage them to lie down so they are more grounded (more contact with the floor). The same applies if your children are really restless. If they are a little bit older and can sit reasonably still – sit cross legged with them on the floor – eyes closed and just listen!
As we are using colours in this meditation, it might be a good idea to show them the picture and get them to know the colours first. Or if your child isn’t great with colours and prefers numbers or shapes – ask them to associate a number or shape with a colour and they can think about this instead in the meditation.
It would be wonderful if you could share any feedback with us – either on this post or by emailing …
If you enjoy the meditation – we have more available on our children/teenager meditation cds (ones for adults too) on at our online shop >>>
