Meditation with Children

Like a Child

Why we Should Help the Young to Meditate

Laurence Freeman OSB

Like a Child (2 CD's)

A child has a natural capacity to experience God as boundless and unconditional love.  But as it moves into adult life, exposure and experience may teach it otherwise:  then the experience of love is lost to fear and skepticism.  It is therefore, Fr. Laurence stresses, the responsibility and the contemporary challenge for religious education to train our children to be true believers with the gift of an interiorly deep faith.  This will help them to deal with the challenges of life as they grow into adulthood.  So we need to introduce them to a way of prayer that will enable them to stay in touch with their early experience of God, which is a direct experience unmediated by language or thought.  Meditation, he says, offers this as a way from the earliest stages of our development and accompanies us through all our stages of growth as it keeps the connection between the head and that heart where wisdom and love have their source.

Meditation with Children (soft-cover booklet)

This book focuses on teaching meditation to children, who can be naturally and totally present in the moment and are thus capable of pure prayer, prayer of the heart.  Meditation can be a powerful way to allow their spirit the deepest possible contact with the Life Source and the space within which to expand.

Meditating in a spiritual tradition can help re-balance the whole human system.  It offers children as well as adults an opportunity to become aware that there is another way of relating with themselves and others, through a support system, a community, and a context of spiritual friendship which are vital to growing in one's humanity.
