This guided meditation for kids teaches the benefits of using all of our senses to experience every day activities, like eating, to their fullest. In addition to our five basic senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, we also have Proprioception which is the sense of awareness of our posture, balance and position of body and Interoception, which is our internal organ and muscle sensory system which tells us things like when we're hungry, thirsty, cold, hot, in pain, need to go to the toilet, etc. Leading fast pace lives with constant distraction and stimulation can dull our senses, making us miss countless opportunities for joy and appreciation. One of the most direct and effective ways we can feel more connected to the present moment is by tuning into our five physical senses. Tactile item needed for this meditation - a strawberry (or another piece of fruit is your child doesn't like them or is allergic to them).
