As part of our weekend of resources for parents looking to practice Buddhism and meditation while caring for small children, we’re very happy to offer this great guided meditation from Upayavira, complete with a full introduction. Ideal for anyone looking to get started with practice - or renew it! - after having kids.
Upayavira was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2000, and became a parent soon after. Since then, he has been exploring, often through necessity, ways to meditate with children around. He’s led “Meditation for Parents” workshops at the Buddhafield Festival and a the Buddhafield Village retreat, as well at some local Buddhist Centres - with the aim of demonstrating that practicing with your young children present isn’t just possible, there can be some huge benefits in this form of practice.
