Right Brain Education: Home Practice – Meditation, Relaxation, Imaging

ShambalaKidsIn Right Brain Education practice, one of the activities to help develop the right brain is image play. There are four parts to image play:

In Pretend Play and Imaginary Story, your child is required to lie down and close his eyes while he imagines all the things you talk about. You can make up any script your like as long as you are careful to engage all of your child’s right brain senses, e.g. “see the pretty flowers in the meadow”, “touch the flowers and feel the soft petals”, “smell the lovely scent from the flower”, “listen to the wind blowing across the meadow”, “taste the yummy ice cream”, etc.

If you aren’t comfortable making up your own imaginary scenarios, you can also use meditation recordings for children. Shambala Kids has some terrific meditation recordings that you can purchase by the disc or via direct download. Shambala Kids meditations can also be used to help children learn to calm themselves down. You can play the recordings as part of your home practice for imaging or your can let your child listen to the recordings just before bedtime as a way of unwinding after a long day.
