Guided Meditation for Justice Seekers

Children and adults often use guided meditation to help them relax or fall asleep. A soothing voice inviting you to imagine yourself sitting beside a babbling brook or wandering through a lush forest can be both calming and refreshing.

But guided meditations aren’t just for relaxation! They are also great resources for helping children imagine themselves as people who can make a difference.

Listen to the podcast with your child and see if this kind of guided meditation is for you!
