The Snowman

Meditation for children

New guided visualisation available on YouTube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=521M7ZBPMHI

This one is for preschoolers and young children. It uses the idea of a snowman’s body melting into the snow to help the child relax and let go.

The music used might be recognized by some of you as it is Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt from the Selfish Giant. A beautiful melody.

The guided visualisations and meditations are uploaded with love for you to use free of charge in any context. I only ask that you click on the SUBSCRIBE button in YouTube. Once there are 100 subscribers, Mindful Minis is eligible for a personalised YouTube channel name that will be easier for all of us to remember!

THE BEACH

Guided visualisation for teenagers

This one is for you, the parents! And any teenage children that you might have.

A guided visualisation that invites you relax and let go by using the beach and the ocean as a focus.

Walking along a beach can be a rich sensory experience: noticing the feel of the sand on your bare feet; breathing in the salty air; listening to the sound of the waves breaking on the shore. By using our senses, we can ground ourselves in the present moment.

This visualisation was inspired by a participant, Louisa Maritz, who joined the first ever Mindful Minis Adult Training course that I led.

I have uploaded it to the Mindful Minis YouTube channel for all of you to enjoy – The Beach.

The Roller Coaster

Mindfulness for children

Sometimes life feels out of control like a roller coaster ride and it is a valuable skill to be able to turn to the breath to find our inner calm.

I have uploaded a new guided visualisation called The Roller Coaster to the Mindful Minis YouTube channel . This guided visualisation takes children on an imaginary adventure in a funfair. While experiencing the excitement of riding the roller coaster, children are asked to notice their breathing and beating hearts.

The visualisation then guides children in how to slow down their breathing and find their inner calm.

A Loving-KINDNESS MEDITATION FOR CHILDREN

mindfulness training in south africa

This week I have uploaded a Loving-Kindness meditation for children to the Mindful Minis YouTube channel. I thought it is apt for our Freedom Day celebration tomorrow!

To help children understand the concept of loving-kindness, this meditation uses the image of a big, red bucket existing inside each of us. When our bucket is full, we feel happy, content and loved. We feel good inside. But when our bucket is empty, we often feel sad and alone. This meditation aims to help children re-fill their bucket with loving-kindness.

I hope that your children enjoy listening to it!
