I teach classes, on and off, at The Realm Creative Academy in Santa Monica. I also create curriculums to teach in Public Schools. Please contact me if you would like me to teach kids various Mindfulness techniques to help strengthen their ability to focus and self-regulate. We work out our brains! Take a moment to breathe and follow it up with fun reflective art projects or fun mindful activities.
About Meditation Classes
My inspiration to teach meditation came from wanting to give my daughter a tool to use to deal with everyday issues she faces at home, at school and in her many after school activities. Meditation has many benefits for children. It helps kids release fears, understand feelings, resolve conflicts, discover their needs, deal with emotions, heal traumas, prepare for tests or important events, and calm and center them. This results in improved relationships with friends, family and others. Meditation is closing your eyes to look inside to learn things we need to know and grow. It provides kids with a tool to use as they choose, to improve self-esteem and rejuvenate their spirit!
In the meditation class, I will provide children with semi-guided journey meditations. The children are led through a story that they take part in creating, providing their individual experiences, concerns and desired outcomes. These journeys are based on what they see, hear, feel, smell and even taste. This is called sensational meditation, using their inner senses to become fully present. This can also be achieved during here-and-now meditations that are experienced by using the outer senses. I hope to instill a skill that they can use for the rest of their lives as they continue to evolve and grow.
All meditations are followed by an art project. As a graphic designer, I am always at the ready to create visuals or representations of the meditations we experience. This creative outlet, whether it is a drawing, painting, sculpture, poetry or acting, often provides additional insight into what the kids experience. Art offers a way for the meditation to be embedded in their consciousness.
I wish to provide a fun, safe and respectful environment for kids to experience all that meditation has to offer. Please allow me the pleasure and joy of passing on this invaluable skill! I look forward to teaching and learning with your kids!
