Preschool meditation curriculum

Kris Geering, one of our Sunday school teachers, has been developing a six-week Sunday school curriculum on meditation for preschoolers called “building Blocks of Meditating.” She and Carol Steinfeld taught this class in April in May, and got a positive response from the 4-8 children who showed up each week.

Kris has given us permission to publish this meditation curriculum online. To read it, click here.
