Guided MeditationFor Primary students
Why guided meditation in the classroom 
?
Using these meditations with children is not thesame as reading stories to them. Reading is passive.Children do understand and become involved in what you are reading, but 
in guided meditation 
,
they become actively involved 
. Reading a story andreading a meditation are different functions. Read-ing stories to children is a must because it helpsthe child to learn and spell, but 
meditation enables the mind to become free 
,
to explore.
Each meditation has its own distinctive theme andgives children the opportunity to experience it. They feel the love of the Buddha; radiate loving-kindness; climb mountains; collect seashells; be-come a bird; feel the touch of the wind on their face; and go to the moon. There are so many things they can do, and all these things must  bring their imagination to the fore. Most impor-tantly, they learn to appreciate the Dhamma more.In other words, they participate in the meditationand
learn to be in touch with the source of love 
,
strength and wisdom inside themselves.
