My daughter goes to a Woodcraft Folk group, (think brownies + social activism). On Monday I was asked to lead the session. The theme was Peace – and it was suggested I do a meditation to help find “peace in ourselves”.
I’ve got to admit – I wasn’t too hopeful about how this would go. I broke the news to my 8 year old daughter. “Oh no, this is going to be SOOOO boring. Do you have to?” She is highly sceptical about meditation – especially if I have anything to do with it. I was concerned that the other children might be of similar mind, and I set off crossing my fingers that I wouldn’t be shouting instructions to find peace across twenty wild 6-9 year olds running amok.
