 Children will get a chance to experience the sounds of instruments and have a chance to play them. We are using mainly singing bowls, gongs, chimes, bells, drums, etc.

We will be practising 10 min of mindfulness curriculum and 50 min of other mindful activities like arts and crafts, making music, games, etc.  If your school has less time, we can introduce short sessions with mindfulness only.

 

In the centre of this programme lies strongly well- being of the teachers and separate sessions for staff are highly recommended to have the long term positive effect on the whole school and understanding of the techniques.

About Sound Magic for Children

 

The sound of singing bowls is good for all age groups, including infants.

Children respond very well to the sound of singing bowls, even a very active child is able to relax or fall asleep during the session.

These sessions help to bring balance and peace. 

It is important for all of us and especially children to be able to stop and relax in a safe space. 

Guided relaxation is a great tool to relax children. 

To make it more interesting, instructions are taking the form of a story. 

I am creating a space where they can explore the sound, listen or play the instruments and gently fall into deep relaxation.

They also learn how to be mindful and practice the importance of kindness towards ourselves and others.

Sometimes singing bowls are placed on the palm of the hand, stomach, back or chest. It gives the children a chance to experience waves of the sound and vibration and sound can be felt with the whole body not only our ears.

When striking the bowl, the person feels a vibration going deep inside the body, spreading and fading away. 

In a space where the sound magic happens, breathing slows down and becomes deeper, muscles relax and the mind calms down.

During the session children often fall asleep taking a good rest, free of worries, allowing the vibration to relax them deeply.

The research has shown that sound therapy is a wonderful tool to relax children and engage them in a positive activity.
