“A fusion of East and West cultures benefits Children and Families”
East-West Kids-Connect was setup in 1995 by founder Mike Sarson to benefit the mental health and well-being of children and families through training in meditation and mindfulness techniques. Meditation gives even very young children, power over their thinking and emotions using enhanced self-understanding and self-acceptance. It is a gentle and effective means of overcoming a wide variety of psychological and behavioural problems. The practical techniques help to manage distractions, stress, anxiety, anger, depression, impulsivity, attachments, and prevent addictions. Other benefits include improved concentration, listening skills, communication skills, creativity, interaction the ability to relax and improved sleep. Such a broad spectrum of benefits highlight the significant potential of meditation as a cost effective form of school based mental health promotion.
Meditation is fully inclusive, respects all faiths and non-faiths and engages with believers and non-believers of any religion or belief system. At the same time it promotes a healthy life-style for the strengthening and well-being of society. Read more……
