Meditation, a gift you can give your children.

Meditation provides proven benefits for children’s balance and behavior. In today’s high-speed world, it allows them to center themselves in order to be able to concentrate better and to express their emotions so as to be able to manage them better. All too often, children feel an obligation to succeed, and meditation offers a rare moment of simplicity in which nothing’s at stake: there’s nothing to lose, nothing to gain. This loving and joyful book will allow you to acquire:

– the essentials for meditating;

– the keys for getting children started on meditation;

– games, stories and a CD with 10 guided meditations of varying lengths recorded by the author, to ease into the practice progressively;

– very concrete accounts of first-person experiences.
