Imagine a world in which everyone grows up with meditation as part of their lives. Imagine your kids dealing with the pressures and frustrations of this new school year with kid-sized meditation tools! If you’d like your kids to get an early start on the path to personal peace, check out The Heart of a Child website, from The Meditation Society of Australia. It’s a down-to-earth, fun place to get them started with this important, healing practice.

From The Heart of a Child meditation site for kids

This message to adults from the creators of the website:  “These meditation exercises are simple in language but no less ‘high’ than any ‘adult’ meditation. They are suggested for different ages because of their complexity of language, not spiritual height, and so it will be of great benefit if all family members do exercises together.”

Here’s how they introduce meditation to kids. As you can see, it’s a great perspective. And like all the kids meditation tools on the website, it’s accessible and encouraging.

Meditation is easy for children. — Many great meditation masters ask their adult students to be more like children so they will meditate better.
What is meditation for children? — We meditate to find and listen to our heart. Our heart is the real home of us. When we can listen to our heart, we automatically feel love and joy, but also we will know what we can be.  Do you ever get sad? Do you sometimes worry too much over silly things? Do you get angry and lose your temper? What would you say, if I was to tell you that meditation will help you become the happiest person in the world? Would you be willing to try it for the next 10 days for at least 5 minutes?  It isn’t a trick. In 10 days you will see the change in yourself.

  • [Intro for adults] A word to the grown ups
  • Getting Started
