We comb the internet, looking for news stories related to all forms of meditation, whether Buddhist or not. To date we have posted thousands of news stories that cover everything from meditation and health to meditating celebrities.

Hi, the children at my school wanted to let you know about a little project we are working on at the moment and to see what you thought about it.

We were wondering if there was a place where you thought you could place this website?
Meditation & Mindfulness FOR children BY children.

meditationandmindfulnessforchildren.blogspot.co.uk

Created by children at The Dharma Primary School. The ONLY Buddhist Primary School in EUROPE.

The blog includes constant updates of the latest mindfulness activities (for home or school), child friendly websites relating to mindfulness, mindfulness news for children, picked by children. Building learning power through mindful mind skill activities. Philosophical questions on which to think about. How to meditate is a guide explaining the benefits and instructions and overcoming possible difficulties surrounding mediating as a young person (this is also provided as a podcast both on the website and on iTunes). We are also looking to develop a page to help aid conflict resolution in schools or at home for children, teachers and parents to use. Another project currently under construction is the idea of using and applying mathematics activities which are rich in mindfulness skills too.
