In this month’s round-up, we highlight the power of Peace and the ideals embodied by the International Day of Peace (September 21).
Peace. Sometimes it can seem so far from reach that we forget that the best place, really the only place to begin, is with ourselves. Our book picks this month make the impossible seem possible, illuminating the ways in which small acts of mindfulness and caring can make a huge difference at home and in the world.
This moving meditation is to help children visualize the practice of rooting in order to rise. We root to ground, to find strength. We rise as we become heartful, kind to ourselves, others and the world around us.
This meditation practice is a great way to make the loving-kindness meditation concrete for elementary school children.
