Pebble Meditation

The children who visit Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh are very lucky.

They learn to do pebble meditation with Thich Nhat Hanh or one of his monks or nuns.

They gather four nice pebbles and put them in a pile on their right.

Then they sit down and wait for the bell to be invited to sound.

Then they pick up the first pebble and hold in their hand and see themselves as fresh flowers of the earth.

When the bell sounds, the put the first pebble on their left side and pick up the second pebble.

With the second pebble, they think of themselves to be solid as a mountain.

With the third pebble, they see themselves as still water reflecting what is real.

With the last pebble, the see themselves as free in space.

Try pebble meditation with your children. They will like it and you will too.

Do you know any children (ages 4-104) who could benefit from pebble meditation? Please share this video with them!
