BOOKING FOR THIS WEBINAR IS NOW CLOSED 

The webinar will be simultaneously translated into Spanish

This  Meditatio webinar will focus on the psychology and spiritual health of children and young people. 

World wide, 10-20% of children and adolescents experience mental health conditions. Half of all mental health conditions start by 14 years of age. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15 -19 year-olds. This is a growing crisis. Teaching meditation at an early age helps build up resilience and diminishes the reaction to stress along with bearing the inner fruits of wholeness.

DR JEAN CLINTON will speak on RESILIENCE & MEDITATION Creating conditions for building resilience in children and young people at an early age contributes to the wholeness of their well-being both now and into the future. We can create those conditions which lead to hope.

LAURENCE FREEMAN OSB will speak on THE VULNERABLE STRENGTH OF CHILDREN Meditation brings many benefits and fruits to children and young people. Our experience has shown that children not only love to meditate but when taught from an early age contributes to both their psychological and spiritual growth.

A RECORDING OF THE TALKS WILL BE SENT TO ALL THOSE WHO REGISTER.
