Mindfulness for children – is it enough?

 

 

Founder of the Inner Kids program, Susan Kaiser Greenland adapted adult meditation practices for kids, seeing a marked improvement in their capacity to focus, calm themselves, and manage stress. She is also the author of The Mindful Child.

Susan shares her insights on how children can learn practical skills to live more balanced, joyful lives. Her approach for teaching mindfulness to kids involves research-based techniques and playful activities.

This is wonderful work by a talented woman who like Obama is stymied by the views and attitudes of many.  She deals with all this with skills and attitudes that I would find it difficult to muster.  Having said that shouldn’t spiritual education go much further?

To give one example – isn’t mind-emptiness at least as important as mindfulness?
