More About the Author

Welcome!

I'm Lorraine Murray - author of 2 books - 'Calm Kids - help children relax with mindful activities' and 'Connected Kids - help kids shine with mindful activities'.

The first book is perfect for beginners and shows you how to create your own meditation scripts. The 2nd is about teaching children with special needs, autism or ADHD and was released in July 2014.

I started up my own company Feel Good Therapies ltd as a professional therapist and Reiki Teacher. I've practised meditation personally since 1998 and am passionate about teaching this great skill - adults and children.

I spent a few years working in schools teaching children from a wide range of backgrounds and ages - from age 7 right up to teenagers. I have learned how children can practise meditation easily and the amazing benefits it brings.

I love yoga, spending time with my dog, hubbie and our 2 pussycats.

I founded the Connected Kids programme which shows adults how to teach kids/teens meditation (online and in person courses).

I love teaching because every time I teach, I learn something new. My students are wonderful and I feel truly grateful to them and all who have bought these books.

Product Description

Review

'Her meditation techniques are simple, sound, and cleverly age appropriate; whether you try them on your Y10 tutor group, or yourself, you could see some rather astonishing results.' -- Teach Secondary 'In an age when children are constantly stimulated and have very little opportunity to practice silence, this book is a welcome contribution.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review 'In this practical and inspiring book, Lorraine Murray shows how to lead fun and peaceful meditation sessions with children. She provides fun, tactile rhymes for toddlers to help them calm down before bedtime, and suggests ways to help teenagers reduce anciety ... This book is suitable for complete beginners, or those with some experience of relaxation and meditation techniques.' -- Green Parent 'This book is well balanced, and it gives a clear background rationale for the use of meditation with children ... The book facilitates the reader's understanding of the topic area in an easily accessible way, as well as giving them the skills to be able to use meditation and develop meditations for their children ... It would be good for parents to read, as well as benefiting people working with children. The book is easy to read and mostly jargon-free, making it readily accessible.' -- www.youthinmind.info

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Heather MacKenzie on 9 Feb. 2012
Format: Paperback
I'm so delighted with my purchase of this book - it's worth its weight in gold! The book is so well-written, easy to read and easy to follow. I tried a meditation with my 9 year old son this evening and he was so receptive to just the simple relaxation exercise that we tried. It's given me the confidence to try a lot more of the techniques and I just know all of my children are going to love them.

I think what I love the most about the book is Lorraine's complete unconditional love and acceptance of children, just as they are. I think her reminder that we often expect too much from our children, and indeed ourselves, and that we are ALL still learning, is something that we must all try to remember whenever we judge ourselves and our children. So the next time that pesky thought pops into my head along the lines of 'Oh will you just stop fidgeting' when one of my children has been waiting ages for me to finish that phonecall (or something similar) I shall remind myself that it's not fair of me to set expectations for my kids. They cannot disappoint me and I shall treasure each moment with them that teaches me more about their nature and the wonderful human beings that they are :-).

Format: Paperback
I know I am prejudiced because I am the headteacher Lorraine worked with but Lorraine's book is outstanding from the perfect cover of the child who looks positively grounded and calm, to the ideas right through the book, it's a gem. I read one of the meditation scripts to my daughter, stopped after 5 lines and said, "What do you think?" 'DON'T STOP',she exclaimed. It was that easy.. pick up the book and read and you are transported to calm and lovely places and images. Well done Lorraine. I've recommended it to many headteachers and therapists and they are all off buying it.

I have followed Teach Children Meditation on Facebook and could hardly wait for my edition of this book to arrive!
I was not disappointed when it did. This book is straightforward, informative and easy to read. Its meditations are so simple yet very effective. Whether you are a beginner in relaxation and meditation or a reiki master like myself, it is an absolute dream.
At last the world is waking up to the fact that education of children should treat the whole! With this book, not only teachers can incorporate this into classroom life but parents can enjoy the calmness these techniques will bring to their children creating the grounding and balance we all need in our lives.
Well done Lorraine! You and your book have spurred me on to follow a path I thought may never happen and that is to teach children meditation! Thankyou

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really like the fact that this book gives you not only all you need to know about introducing meditation to your children's lives but also a lit of information about other resources and techniques to help calming down such as reiki, mandala drawing and the like. I found it really useful and would recommend it to parents and teachers alike.
