Guided Meditation for Young Kids

Tuesday December 5, 2017: 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm -- Traverwood Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for preschool - kindergarten

Whether it's stress, anxiety, or the occasional moodiness, kids can benefit from quieting their mind as much as adults. Local massage therapist and meditation leader Amy Tarrant will lead young children through a series of guided meditations to encourage calmness and more. We'll start with a story by one of our storytellers, move into meditation and finish with a hands-on craft to make a “breathing buddy” for meditating at home. Meditation at a young age plants the seed of a lifelong resource for dealing with stress or hard situations. Attendees are welcome to bring a pillow or blanket with them for added comfort.
