Group Meditation for Kids

This is a guided meditation for children led by an older child or adult. It includes 3 parts - an opening prayer, short quiet time meditation, and a song.

To begin, leader and children sit up straight next to each other, eyes open, in a circle facing in. Everyone holds hands. The right palm faces up to receive the group energy and the left palm faces down to send it on.

Part 1

A prayer or poem can be read or recited from memory, such as “Golden Light”

“Golden Light, shining bright,
Always teach me what is right.

Teach me to speak with kindness and care.
Teach me to be willing to share.

Teach me to remember, when playing with others,
That all of us are world sisters and brothers.

Golden Light, shining bright,
Keep our world family safe in Your sight.”

Part 2

Leader and children close their eyes for a minute or more of quiet time, thinking about one way to be kind after the meditation.

Part 3

Open eyes and sing an uplifting song such as “Keep Us in Your Sight” to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell” (The farmer in the dell, the farmer in the dell, hi-ho the derry-o, the farmer in the dell.)

"Lord, keep us in Your sight,
Lord, keep us in Your sight,

1st verse:
- In school, while playing and at home,
Lord, keep us in Your sight.

2nd verse:
- May we all join hand in hand,
Lord, keep us in Your sight.

3rd verse:
- May peace spread over every land,
Lord, keep us in Your sight.

Final verse: (repeat 3rd verse)
Lord, keep us in Your sight,
Lord, keep us in Your sight,
May peace spread over every land,
Lord, keep us in Your sight.”

To finish the group meditation, stand, stretch; enjoy the uplifted energy!
