A Practical Guide to the Use and Benefits of Meditation.
Meditation has long been recognised as a priceless tool for developing powers of concentration, aiding relaxation, enhancing self-understanding and general wellbeing, and promoting personal and spiritual growth.
This is a guide to teaching children the health-giving benefits of meditation, covering their needs from school age to late adolescence. It is a practical guide to the use and benefits of meditation, inspired by recent research that shows that childhood disorders such as hyperactivity, aggression and sleep problems may be helped by meditation.
This practical, instructive and highly relevant approach to teaching meditation to young people is the first book to address their concerns so thoroughly. Aimed at parents, teachers and other adults who work with young people, it is packed with information and practical exercises which children of all ages can appreciate and learn from.
The book also shows how to use meditation for specific psychological and social problems, such as:
- Shyness, anxiety and tension
- Hyperactivity, aggression and impatience
- Anti-social behaviour
- Asthma, insomnia and depression
