Practicing Mindfulness with Children
Thich Nhat Hanh and Wietske Vriezen
Planting Seeds offers insight, concrete activities, and curricula that parents and educators can apply in school settings, in their local communities or at home, in a way that is meaningful and inviting to children.
The key practices presented include mindful breathing and walking, inviting the bell, pebble meditation, the Two Promises or ethical guidelines for children, children's versions of Touching the Earth and Deep Relaxation, eating meditation and dealing with conflict and strong emotions. Also included are the lyrics to the songs on the enclosed CD that summarize and reinforce the key teachings, as well as a chapter on dealing effectively with conflict in the classroom or difficult group.
Thich Nhat Hanh is author of more than one hundred books, sixty in English. His previous books for children include A Pebble for Your Pocket, The Coconut Monk and The Hermit and the Well. Wietske Vriezen met Thich Nhat Hanh during a retreat in Holland in 2000 and was touched deeply by the practice. Since then, she has illustrated a number of books based on the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, most recently Mindful Movements and A Basket of Plums.
