I love showing people how to teach kids meditation. I am constantly amazed at how children and teens respond to mindfulness and mindful activities and it gives me no greater joy to see the delight of the adults who teach them.
Often adults are amazed how kids respond. Perhaps adults think that it must be difficult for kids to meditate because adults usually struggle at the beginning. I don’t believe this is true and especially for kids with special needs.
I believe in them. I believe that kids with special needs are just as capable of finding moments of peace if we show them how. I refuse to accept that they can’t do it and know that it is my purpose to help find a more creative, fun and adapted way for them to access this important life skill we call meditation.
