We take the essence of the following quotation to be the Guiding Principle behind any attempt to teach children through an organised curriculum.

When teaching children, this guiding principle needs to be kept in mind at all times.


Meditation for children and young people is essentially Christian. At the heart of this principle is a person, the person of Jesus.

Children, like adults, will find the practice of meditation a process in which they will feel like they have ‘come home’. They will feel as if they have arrived at a place that is familiar, real, and comfortable for them.

"The Kingdom of God does not come in such a way as to be seen. No one will say 'look here it is', or 'there it is' because the Kingdom of God is within you."
Lk 17:20-21

"The sublime and glorious reality which we call God, is to be sought first and foremost in the human heart. If we do not find God there, we shall not find God anywhere else. If we do find God there, we can never lose God again; wherever we turn, we shall see God's face."
Meister Eckhart
