A free gift for you!
The post on mindfulness was very popular last week! Many asked for more information about pebble meditation, so today, by popular request, I am sharing our pebble meditation cards. They were inspired by the simple Pebble Meditation my kids learned from Thich Nhat Hanh at Plum Village, his mindfulness practice center near Bordeaux, France.
These beautiful cards my son designed can be used with a set of four pebbles to share this practice with your children. Feel free to print these out for your family or share them online with your friends.
How to use the cards: Find a quiet moment and a spot in nature or at home, and sit comfortably with your children.
Breathing in and breathing out, pull out the cards one at a time along with the corresponding pebble.
The flower pebble reminds our kids that they are beautiful, just as they are. It communicates self-acceptance.
You can also use the cards whenever you or your child need a reminder about one of the concepts above.
For more reading on the pebble meditation, you can also check out the beautiful book “A Handful of Quiet: Happiness in Four Pebbles.”
