    Building your mind garden technique for five to eight year olds

    When children are feeling worried, anxious thoughts can well up in their minds at bedtime – making it difficult for them to drop off.
    This meditation introduces the idea of the mind garden, which encourages children to visualise their positive thoughts as flowers and negative thoughts as weeds. This teaches them to accept their worries and thoughts without judgement.
