Loving Kindness Meditation for Children

In this bonus episode for parents, caregivers, and educators, Chanel shares her favourite mindfulness meditation practice called Mettā Meditation, or Loving Kindness Meditation. This is a practice that comes from Buddhism and its intention is to cultivate an attitude of benevolence and goodwill towards ourself and others, by repeating short phrases, like: “may you be happy” and “may you be healthy.” Loving Kindness Song I hope you're happyI hope you're happyAnd healthyAnd healthyAlways be safeAlways be safeLive with easeLive with ease (To the tune of "Frère Jacques") Subscribe here to our monthly newsletter for mindfulness activities and Peace Out news and updates.  References: Fredrickson, B.
