Meditation for Children

Meditation for Children ages 10-15 with Joni Sturgill

Unplugged - Meditation to Embody & Empower Children & Adolescents
Kids today are attached to their electronic devices, be they gaming, texting, facebooking, or instagraming. Seemingly gone are the days of playing outside, being in nature, visiting friends houses and just “hanging out” - not virtually - but in reality. Giving adolescents the opportunity to find out who they are on the inside is so important. Learning meditation is one way to help kids unplug, slow down and be present to the nuances of life all around that are missed when they’re in the virtual world. This workshop involves both discussion and time to practice several simple meditation and mindfulness techniques.
