Children of all ages benefit from taking time out each day "unplugged" to relax and focus. Meditation offers this break and helps kids function more effectively and clearly.
“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” -Dalai Lama. Further, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) encourages parents to share meditation with their children—and teachers to incorporate mindfulness training into their lesson plans.
We feel meditation is something we can teach our children at home, at school, and at church. This is why Unity encourages time for quiet and meditation in our youth education program. To learn more about our program, click here.
