Welcome [MM_Member_Data name=’firstName’],

Where should you (the adult) start?

First, it’s important to understand one fundamental truth about meditation in order to teach it to children.

Meditation is not do-ing, it’s be-ing.

Meditation, as a starting point, is simply being aware of your own awareness.

It is the “practice” that is the do-ing.

The practice consists of sitting quietly on a pillow (or chair) with your eyes closed and anchoring your awareness to something other than thought itself (e.g. your breath, a mantra, etc.). When you do this consistently, preferably daily, you have a started a meditation practice.

Over time, it is this practice that will naturally lead you to a meditative state … on its own. It is this process that creates the right conditions for meditation to occur.
