Teaching Christian Meditation to Children & Youth

Children meditate together as naturally as they play together. Sitting together in meditation – where there is no competition, no judgment and no taking account of their background or their special needs – becomes a wonderful way of building community in the classroom.

This workshop covered the teaching and practice of Christian meditation and what makes it Christian.  We also delved into the practical ‘hows’ involved in teaching meditation to children & youth so that those participating feel equipped to introduce this practice in the classroom, religious education & Sunday school programs, congregations, at home, and beyond.  Practical tools and resources were provided.

Paloma: Stories of the Soul

“These works are prayers in visual form. During times of grief, suffering, contemplation, hope, and peace, I see the colorful birds of El Salvador’s folk art as symbols of the soul and a continual source of inspiration. The spirit of the paloma in this work represents the soul of my child, my self, my people, and my ancestors.
