Meditation for Children & Teens
Imagine if you had been given a tool to cope with the ups and downs of life?
Children face unique social and emotional challenges in today’s rapidly changing world. Meditation is a way to bring them in touch with a quietness and stability they desperately seek, but can’t access in the ever changing outside world.
Vedic meditation is suitable for children from the age of 8 years. Teens are perfect candidates for vedic meditation, being at heightened risk of anxiety and stress due to academic pressure and the new age pull of technology and social media.
Before a child can be taught this technique, at least one parent must already be a vedic meditator to enable appropriate support and encouragement.
Benefits of Meditation for Children
#1. Improved Focus
Meditation helps both hemispheres of the brain to communicate and become more coherent. It sharpens concentration, helps with attention span and stills a busy mind.
#2. Enhanced Confidence
Meditation helps children to become more self-aware and in turn, gain confidence. With a greater sense of self at the core, it helps keep negative self-talk at bay.
#3. Increased Compassion & Empathy
Meditating helps children become more compassionate towards themselves and others. Children who meditate tend to be more virtuous and empathic.
They develop a sense of interconnectedness, self-love, mindfulness and compassion which all start to emerge in their personality more naturally.
#4. Reduced Academic Stress
With so much pressure to perform, it doesn’t matter how much we explain the bigger picture to our children, they will put the pressure on themselves.
Meditation helps boost their sleep quota, and gain some much needed perspective.
#5. Greater Emotional Control
Super sensitive or lashing out for no apparent reason?
If your child displays unusual levels of anger, aggression, crying, depression or fear based behaviours, meditation will help soothe their inner trauma and to self-regulate.

For children in the range of 8 to 15 years, a private meditation course is best. Teens above 15 years are welcome to learn privately too, or join an adult course.

Our Children’s course takes place over 2 days.
Day 1 – 60 minute appointment,
where we assign ‘Word of Wisdom’ or Mantra.
Day 2 – 30 minute appointment,
to answer their questions and check their practice.
NB – this is for children 8-15 years. Older children require the full 3 day adult course.
Frequently Asked Questions
They will be able to. Children are such naturals at vedic meditation because they appreciate simple instruction, enjoy a personalised mantra, and tend not to overthink things in quite the same way adults do.
