Information and resources for teenagers'
and children's courses
day introductory courses are held for both teenagers (12-16
years, high school) and children (8-12 years, primary school
) during the year.
During the courses the students
learn Anapana meditation, the awareness of their own natural
breath. The aim is to enable them to practise after the
course for about ten minutes twice a day. This daily practice
has been found to bring many benefits, including:
helping them to cope with stress, worry,
anxiety and nervousness, and
improving their concentration and memory.
As they learn to calm and concentrate their minds,
they also learn to gain mastery over their impulses and
Teenagers' and children's courses are held from time to time and are listed on the course schedule page. Courses can also be arranged by
parents or teachers at other times for groups of 10
or more – either
in school term or in the holidays. For more information
