Dear Families and Friends,
Welcome back to our House Blog!
We are very proud to announce that this evening we started with our boys a “21 days Vipassana Meditation Challenge”. It will last until the Winter Holiday. 15 minutes every day. Bedtime.
Since the beginning of the school year, we exposed our kids to a meditation practice, which in the last years has become an essential part of our daily routine. The boys decide to join the two meditation sessions (morning, bedtime) voluntarily and since August they have practiced some very basic breathing techniques for few minutes every day. We gradually increased the meditation time, and by the end of marking period 1, we reached a 15 minutes bedtime practice.
So, what is the need to start a 21 days meditation challenge then? What is Vipassana meditation and why out of many different meditation techniques we chose Vipassana?
Those are legitimate questions that will certainly get an answer in our next blog post on this topic. The option to get a swifter response? Ask our kids! Challenge them with your curiosity! Your interest will certainly boost their determination to learn a vital life skill… and, by the way, why don’t you join our challenge?
