Children are naturally intuitive and have the capacity to understand and develop this valuable way of perceiving and relating to their inner and outer experiences. Being able to interpret the information available to them and then to use energy management skills for establishing and maintaining grounding, life force energy, and energetic boundaries can lead to an increased sense of empowerment, greater resilience with challenging people and environments, and an overall sense of connectedness and wellbeing.

Children’s Intuition & Meditation Course

Ages 5 to 10 years old 

Using imagination as the language of intuition, each week we’ll be learning about a different aspect of the subtle energy body, as well as practicing age-appropriate skills that are essential to maintaining a healthy system. The emphasis will be on experiential learning that includes guided meditation, movement, expressive arts, and talking circles.

Week 1:  What is Intuition? Ways that you are already intuitive.

Week 2:  Grounding to the Earth – Keeping yourself strong and feeling good.
Meditation Sanctuary – Your quiet inner peaceful place.

Week 4:  Life Force, Earth Energy, and Neutral Separations – Feeling like yourself.

Week 5:  Aura, Chakras, and Color Healing — Emotional protection and healing touchpoints.

Parents are encouraged to attend the last 10 minutes of each class to review the lesson for the day, as well as some ways they can support the learning and practices at home.
