Have you benefited from guided meditation? Curious if meditation is right for your child or children? Wondering when and how to introduce meditation to your kids?

On this free podcast, Mitch is wondering what age is appropriate to introduce meditation to his children. Meditation expert Roy Masters discusses with him the importance of not pushing meditation on your children. Being a good example, especially as a father, provides a natural form of meditation for children.

At a certain age, some children may ask how to meditate. Marco, a ten-year-old boy, provides a special testimonial for the Be Still and Know meditation. If it wasn't for the free guided meditation, he would still be dealing the destructive anger and trauma he's suffered with since was six.

Quotes regarding children and meditation from Roy Masters’ books:

The salvation of your children and family depends on two things:
1) your standing firm on principle, making principle unmistakably clear and
2) their choosing to stand with you on the side of principle, it having been made clear to them. The choice must be theirs alone, for God wants volunteers, not conscripts; that is why you must get your own will in the matter out of the way.
- Adam & Eve Sindrome

The true authority is within; those who are truly linked to that authority in themselves understand the very delicate process of slowly introducing their children to their own centers of dignity. If you have such authority in yourself— that is, if you have abandoned your ego life—your offspring can follow any suggestion from you without any danger whatsoever of becoming conditioned to an authority outside themselves, for the love coming through you is in concert with the understanding of life in them.

“Don’t coerce people to accept you or your beliefs. You have no responsibility but to express the Truth. By doing so, you provide an example that stands in sharp contrast to evil. Be patient; let people make their own commitments.”
