Meditation Benefits – childhood mental health

We know that teaching kids and teens meditation works boy and mum meditating - teach children meditationbecause we have a worldwide community of parents and tutors who have learned how to do this through our Connected Kids programme.

When I first had the idea of teaching kids meditation (back in 2003), no-one was offering any guidance.  That’s why we set up Connected Kids so you could have the confidence to teach meditation to your family and junior clients.

Fortunately, the landscape has changed.  We now have a growing body of evidence that meditation really helps the mental health of young people.

Please take the first step and learn more or try to teach your kids meditation.  

Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of young people.

Thank you
