Children learn “Anapana”, which is a technique of the observation of natural, normal respiration as it comes in and as it goes out.
The “Anapana” technique:
Is simple yet scientific
Is morality-based but non-religious
Uses a natural object to focus
The aim is to let children experience the benefits of meditation.
Regular practice of Anapana technique gives many benefits, including:
Improved concentration and memory
More self-confidence and greater capacity to study
Ability to deal with agitation, fears, anxieties and pressures
Increased goodwill for others
Meditation sessions are combined with discussion, creative activities, and games in smaller groups.
Courses are run solely on the basis of voluntarily offered donations.
