Everyone holds the power within themselves to live in harmony with all other beings; it starts with a breath. Shine introduces a guided meditation practice using the breath, the imagination, and gentle movement to help children realize how they can create calm and peace inside themselves and in the world around them.
Meditation using the breath is a simple and effective way to manage anxiety and stress—which even young children can experience. With a few easy-to-learn techniques, symptoms of anxiety and stress can be managed, which will lead to a more balanced, happier life, and create a sense of connection to the larger world. Shine provides a fun and accessible way to slow down and find calm and relaxation anytime, anywhere.
Though these guided meditation techniques are presented for children, the adults in their lives can join in to develop useful and enjoyable skills. Explore the connection between mind, body, and spirit to create a daily meditation practice for the whole family.
