A couple of years ago I attended a webinar on teaching mindfulness to kids, and the instructor kept telling us:
- Don't have the kids sit cross-legged on the floor.
- Don't begin and end the session with a bell.
- Don't do lovingkindness meditation.
- Don't do Thich Nhat Hanh's Pebble Meditation.
"Christians will object."
I found this quite frustrating, since I know Christian mindfulness teachers who do all of those things.
