The Boston Buddha - Meditation With Children
April 16, 2011
Hosted by Terri-Sue
I have had many discussions on yoga and meditation but I have yet to discuss meditation with children. Andy Kelly will join me in a lively discussion on training children to quiet their minds and focus on feeling relaxed, calm and serene. In addition, he will share the journey that led him to make the decision to work with children. We will discuss his meditation program with a local elementary school in his area as well as his work with teenagers. He will include tips for parents to help their children maintain these valuable relaxation techniques after meditation sessions are over.
Frame of Mind
Archives Available on 7th Wave Network
Frame of Mind is a program that mainly focuses on various means of obtaining a healthy, well balanced life. We will also consider the benefits of combining modern science with ancient healing practices such as Ayurveda.
We will help develop a community of people who want to enrich their lives with new ways of looking at the world and all who inhabit it. In so doing, you can create ways that we can live and work together harmoniously and peacefully for the good of mankind and our planet Earth.
If we believe that we can create peace in the world exponentially, our mission becomes to lead by positive example. If we learn to live and think healthier, we begin to explore and focus on our strengths. Once we determine what our strengths are, we can use those gifts and talents to help others to heal. Helping others fosters congeniality. Congeniality facilitates peace and love.
