Loving Kindness Meditation for Children

Written and narrated by Chanel Tsang

In this bonus episode for parents, caregivers, and educators, Chanel shares her favourite mindfulness meditation practice called Mettā Meditation, or Loving Kindness Meditation. This is a practice that comes from Buddhism and its intention is to cultivate an attitude of benevolence and goodwill towards ourself and others, by repeating short phrases, like: “may you be happy” and “may you be healthy.”

Loving Kindness Song 
I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy
And healthy
And healthy
Always be safe
Always be safe
Live with ease
Live with ease

(To the tune of "Frère Jacques")
