Synopsis

Relax Kids The Wishing Star by Marneta Viegas

Using guided meditations based around traditional stories this is a gentle and fun way of introducing older children to the world of meditation and relaxation. It is designed to counteract some of the tensions with which we are all familiar at the end of a busy day, and offer parent and children together some quality time to relax and share. The meditations and visualisations aim to develop children's imagination and provide them with skills that will be invaluable for the rest of their life.

Your splendid and amusing act made all the difference for me and all the other guests arriving at the Palace. Everyone was greatly impressed. HRH Prince of Wales Relax Kids is so yummy-I love the meditations myself and certainly intend to try them on every kid in my life. They work for me so why not for them! Lynne Franks PR guru, author of The Seed Handbook. Relax Kids is a source of brilliantly imaginative meditations so sensitively and creatively written and beautifully illustrated. This inspiring book is a wonderful resource for teachers and parents, who will be able to use it to help children nurture their spiritual worlds of thought and feelings. It will be especially welcomed by teachers who are using visualisation as an element of values education or during circle time. I'm delighted to commend this unique book that I'm sure will help countless children nurture their innate qualities of goodness, love, peace and respect. Neil Hawkes, Senior Education Advisor Oxfordshire County Council, author of How to Inspire and Develop Positive Values in Your Classroom Becci Abrahms parenting author This is a truly delightful book and the perfect way to introduce children to the art of relaxation. The idea of using well-known fairy stories as a spring-board for each meditation makes them instantly accessible to even very young children, and the illustrations are charming. My children were enchanted and bedtime in our household has been transformed! Rebecca Abrams, Family advice expert, Daily Telegraph This is a beautiful book. Children of all ages will be transported into a world of imagination and relaxation. Many adults are likely to benefit from this book too. I will be delighted to recommend this book to families, friends and patients. Dr Julia Ronder MBBs, BSc, MRC, Psych MD, Consultant Child and Adoloscent Psychiatrist Enchanting! This book deserves to sit by the bedside of every child (and adult too!) Every page is brimming with imagination, creativity and positivity.
