Meditation with Children

Monkey and I have been learning to meditate together. It is something I've been doing off and on for several years yet not consistently for the twenty minutes twice a day practice I know would be optimal. For the past couple of weeks we've added it to our bedtime routine and he gets upset if I suggest we skip it - so we just stay up later to make sure it gets included. We snuggle close in his big comfy chair and use the Ipad to watch YouTube tutorials or we listen to music or meditate silently. Our favorite song is the Gayatri Mantra by Deva Premal and we often sing along. Such a beautiful way to end a long, busy day. Here is one of our favorite videos by yuttadhammos. His voice is calming and sincere and this video a perfect introduction to meditation for children.
