At school, we believe education should touch the whole child. This includes the physical, emotional, spiritual, social + cognitive aspects of the child's life. We teach children quietness as a skill to reflect and recharge their inner lives. Lorraine Murray helped us on this journey.'
-- Sheila Laing, Head Teacher

Stress + behavioural disorders are common in children, who are increasingly bombarded by marketing campaigns, faced with school + peer pressure, + able to sense the stress of adults around them.

Mindfulness + meditation can help children recognise + cope with these pressures, releasing bad feelings gently + giving them simple tools to deal with tension + stress throughout their lives. In this practical + inspiring book, Lorraine Murray shows parents, teachers + youth workers how to lead fun + peaceful meditation sessions with children.

Lorraine explains a variety of different approaches, from meditations around daily activities for busy families, to ideas for group 'quietness' sessions in schools.

This book is suitable for complete beginners, or those with some experience of relaxation + meditation techniques. It offers all the advice needed to lead sessions with children, whilst encouraging the reader to adapt + develop their own ways of helping children to feel calmer, happier + more peaceful.
