Christian Meditation with Children

Christian Meditation Ireland is currently promoting the practice of Christian Meditation with Children on a whole-school basis in primary schools.

We offer full training to the staff of schools participating in the project. The training normally takes place in a single two-hour staff in-service, normally under the Croke Park hours. There is no charge involved. However, we do ask schools, that subsequently introduce the practice, to purchase a Starter Pack for the staff library and there may be a small charge for travel. In addition, we invite schools to consider making a voluntary donation to the project.

Since last November, a team of 20 volunteers has been active in delivering in-service to 40 primary schools. By May 2013, a total of 40 schools had introduced the practice of Christian meditation with children. This means that each week approximately 10,000 pupils meditate with their class-mates and teachers. For a project that started in November this is a remarkable achievement.

Christian Meditation Ireland is now accepting applications for the next school year. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so early application is advised.
