Can Adults Teach Children Meditation?
Calm Kids is the name of the book which was written by Lorraine Murray and on which the courses ‘Connected Kids™ – How to Teach Children Meditation Programme’ is based.
Can Adults Teach Children Meditation?
When it was first suggested to Lorraine that she write a book to help adults teach children meditation, she decided to set up a course to see if this could actually be achieved. Could adults of any background or experience learn to do this?
The answer was astonishing. Lorraine witnessed complete beginners and those who had practised meditation for years learn these new skills that would help children they worked with (or their own children). This positive feedback encouraged Lorraine to pursue the book, and lo and behold it is here!
Lorraine’s approach to meditation is really practical (like her!) so although she will talk about crystals and healing which might not be your ‘cup of tea’, she shows you how to use daily activities to bring a bit of peace into the lives of you and your children using something we call ‘meditation’.
Lorraine (and her team of helpers) are really committed to encouraging every adult to try meditation with their kids – simply because it makes such a positive difference to the lives of their children and to the adults too.

“I just wanted to say that I received my copy Calm Kids which arrived this morning and what can I say?? Wow well written and researched I’m already half way through the book ands it’s a great tool, my son had ADHD and we both meditate together when he feels stressed. I have achieved more things in life since having Ciaran 10 years ago. Thank you so much Lorraine.”
“I’m really enjoying your book – you can tell it was written from the heart. The 2 things that I wish I had known about, when I was bringing up my daughters in the 60′s and 70′s is meditation and baby massage. That would have taken a wonderful experience into the realms of the glorious. Well done wonderful heart mother.”
