I'm Lorraine Murray - author of 2 books - 'Calm Kids - help children relax with mindful activities' and 'Connected Kids - help kids with special needs (and autism) shine with mindful, heartfelt 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 have been teaching meditation since 2003 to children, teens and adults. I've practised mindful meditation since 1998 and am passionate about teaching this great skill - adults and children.
I worked 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, husband and our 2 pussy cats.
I founded the Connected Kids programme which shows adults how to teach kids/teens meditation (on line and in person courses).
I love helping people learn how to teach kids (especially those with autism or ADHD) how to meditate.
I hope you take this important step to teach young people meditation. Thank you.
