This process leads children into the Scripture scene, where they meet Jesus personally and are encouraged to talk and listen to him - which is prayer. Children will love to listen to these meditations because they love stories and because they are personally invited by Jesus to come, sit beside him, and listen to his story. Teaching children how to come to the Lord will not only affect you and your class now, but will lead children into a lifelong habit of affective prayer - the heart of religious education.

Sleep deprivation is a growing problem worldwide. We go to our doctors for advice, but they seem to have nothing but pills to counteract this predicament, and these quick fixes fail to get to the root of the problem.Buddha's Book of Sleep is the first book to treat sleep disorders from the perspective of mindfulness meditation. Yet this is a natural choice - mindfulness meditation has proven effective for other psychological problems such as stress, depression and anxiety and these very issues are what become sleep problems when our heads hit the pillow. Divided into two sections, this book attacks sleep disorders with a combination of wisdom and practical meditation exercises. The first section describes the reasons why mindfulness meditation's basis in self-awareness is appropriate for dealing with this problem, detailing the practices of this popular form of meditation. The second section contains seven specific exercises to practice at bedtime or in the wee hours of the morning, depending on when sleeping problems occur. Supplying readers with a new perspective on why they cannot fall asleep (even when they feel exhausted), and arming them with easy-to-use tools from the practices of mindfulness meditation, Buddha's Book of Sleep will help the reader calm their hurried thoughts and rest easy.

At school, we believe education should touch the whole child. This includes the physical, emotional, spiritual, social and cognitive aspects of the child's life. We teach children quietness as a skill to reflect and recharge their inner lives. Lorraine Murray helped us on this journey.' -- Sheila Laing, Head Teacher. Stress and behavioural disorders are common in children, who are increasingly bombarded by marketing campaigns, faced with school and peer pressure, and able to sense the stress of adults around them. Mindfulness and meditation can help children recognise and cope with these pressures, releasing bad feelings gently and giving them simple tools to deal with tension and stress throughout their lives. In this practical and inspiring book, Lorraine Murray shows parents, teachers and youth workers how to lead fun and peaceful meditation sessions with children. Lorraine explains a variety of different approaches, from meditations around daily activities for busy families, to ideas for group 'quietness' sessions in schools. She provides fun, tactile rhymes for toddlers to help them calm down before bedtime, and suggests ways to help teenagers reduce anxiety. She goes on to explain how these methods can help children with ADHD and those on the autistic spectrum, giving a range of case studies. This book is suitable for complete beginners, or those with some experience of relaxation and meditation techniques. It offers all the advice needed to lead sessions with children, whilst encouraging the reader to adapt and develop their own ways of helping children to feel calmer, happier and more peaceful.

"Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children" helps children to become and stay aware of the world around them, aware of their own fabulousness, aware of energy, aware of their thoughts and feelings influencing their lives and that of others, aware of their connection with this beautiful planet we live on, and aware of how they can change anything for the better, easily and quickly, in order to create trust, strength and happiness. We are creatures of habit. If we can pick up 'bad' habits (stress, anger), we can also be taught good habits (relaxation, trust, conscious breathing, forgiveness, peace…). We need to teach children how to manage their own behavior instead of having others manage it for them. Meditation and being aware is coming to a place within your heart and mind where you feel happy and trusting so you can feel good again, in and after any situation, wherever you are and as quickly as possible. Visualizing specific pictures in the mind supports this. It teaches children power and control over how they feel, what's happening and where they want to be in life! Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children contains 22 short meditations to help children on their way, so they can then easily apply 'coping mechanisms' into real life. An Audio-CD with the meditations from this book is also available (978-1-84409-727-2).

Mindfulness has become a popular tool to help people manage anxiety and stress and to increase focus and productivity in the busy modern world. Smiling Mind provides personal insight from the perspective of two successful business people and founders of Smiling Mind, Australia's largest mindfulness non-profit program - with a community of over 1,000,000 users across it's platforms. The authors have both used mindfulness to help navigate the peaks and troughs of everyday life. Based on their personal experiences and the mounting evidence showing the benefits of mindfulness practice, the authors demonstrate how to bring mindfulness to all areas of our lives including work, relationships, families and parenting. They explain what "switching on" or "being mindful" is, and crucially, how it works. They explain how to use the principles of mindfulness to build a happier, healthier and more connected life. Smiling Mind is full of ideas, advice, practical tools and inspiration to lead a life that is fulfilling, passionate and emotionally healthy and to pass those lessons on to our families and the wider community.
