mindfulness exercises and guided meditation for kids AND ADULTS
We play three mindful games in a row to practice paying attention while moving and having fun.
We learn that focusing on a long out-breath can help us feel more relaxed and calm.
We blow on a pinwheel to notice that different ways of breathing—quick, slow, deep, and shallow—affect how our minds and bodies feel.
We shake a glitter ball or snow globe to help us understand the connection between what happens in our minds and what happens in our bodies.
We imagine biting into a lemon to help us understand the connection between what’s happening in our minds and what’s happening in our bodies.

In this 10-minute guided practice with Susan Kaiser Greenland, we notice how our minds and bodies feel when we stop, breathe, and be.
In this 6-minute guided practice from Susan Kaiser Greenland, children listen to the rain and pay attention to the changing nature of the sounds, breathing, thoughts, and feelings.
In this 6-minute guided practice from Susan Kaiser Greenland, we pretend to rock a stuffed animal to sleep on our bellies to relax our bodies and quiet our minds. As we breathe in, the animal rocks up; as we breathe out, the animal rocks back down.
In this seven-minute guided practice, children and teens get comfortable, relax, and gaze at the sky to explore what’s happening within and around them.
Just Like Me is a guided compassion practice from Chade-Meng Tan's book Search Inside Yourself that reminds us we have a lot in common with everyone else. Regardless of how someone looks on the outside, they can feel fearful, sad, or lonely on the inside. Remembering this, our perspectives expand from a narrow sense of “me” to a broader sense of “we.”
