Mindful Minute: Flower Meditation

For this mindful minute, I show my children time-lapse video of flowers blooming.  This imagery will serve as the inspiration for our imagination:

 

I tell the children:

“We are going to imagine we have flowers in our hearts.  They are opening and blooming and becoming large and beautiful”

After a minute or so of quiet sitting, I share my experience with the meditation:

“I felt like my heart was so big and beautiful!”

Each child then has an opportunity to share how they felt or what they imagined during the mindful minute.
