Coming Home - Guide to Teaching Christian Meditation to Children




#7058

This ground-breaking book opens up new approaches to the religious and spiritual education of children. It presents the results of an extended pilot project in a school system in a way that can enlighten teachers and parents in meeting the spiritual needs of children in our confused and troubled world.

Based on the professional experience of the Catholic Education Office of the Diocese of Townsville, Australia, it has already begun to inspire schools and families worldwide. The great discovery behind this program of teaching Christian meditation to children from age 5 – 17 is that children can meditate and that they like to meditate.

The author Ernie Christie is Director of Religious Education Curriculum at Townsville Catholic Education Office in N. Queensland.

The tradition of meditation as taught in recent times by John Main and The World Community for Christian Meditation is clearly described. Practical an detailed accounts of introducing children to the experience in classroom and daily life also make this an invaluable resource and inspiration today for anyone serious about helping children to grow to their full potential.

If the future of the world lies in our children, this book has a message that cannot be forgotten.

The DVD Coming Home accompanying this book will inspire and encourage children and adults alike.
