Welcome to mindfulkids. This is a place for us to share resources and ideas about practising mindfulness with kids. It is hosted by the nuns and monks of Plum Village, an international meditation centre in the South West of France. We practise meditation and mindfulness in the Zen Buddhist tradition of Master Thich Nhat Hanh, and offer retreats and days of mindfulness for families. We have created this site so that we can share the resources we are developing, in our practice centres in France and in the U.S. , and so others who have developed resources can share theirs, too.
We need your help and participation. Plum Village monastics are currently posting up the principle practices we share with children in the wordpress.com and share with us your experience, your stories, your joy, your difficulties– share how and what you are learning from children. Share with us which activities work and which ones don’t work so well yet. We also encourage children to share their experiences with the practice. Feel free to send us art, songs and photos so that we can post them.
