Meditation

February4

To all our families, a big welcome back to school. Some of you may know that we started whole class meditation last year in Term 4. It is Christian meditation. We start with 3 rings of a bell. Then we meditate silently for 3 minutes, trying to  stay calm and just concentrate on our breathing. If our mind wanders to outside things we come back to the present moment by repeating a meaningful word over and over a few times. Our word is something that helps us appreciate God eg. Father, Lord, Mara-na-tha (a Christian meditation word).

We do this at least 3 times a week after lunch. Some classes do it every day. It’s a lovely way of feeling the peace and presence of God in our lives. This could also be a family bed time activity for a prayer and peaceful sleep. Why not try it, your children can lead you.
