Born Contemplative

Introducing Children to Christian Meditation

Referring to children, Madeleine Simon says, ‘In their simplicity they catch and hold God by love.' She had an intuitive understanding that children are ‘born contemplative’. This book helps adults who care for children to share in their openness and longing for God in the silence, stillness and simplicity of Christian meditation.


This new edition brings an experiential dimension to Madeleine Simon’s enduring message. An invitation at the end of each chapter encourages the reader to respond not only to the content but, more importantly, to the experience of sharing the prayer of silence with children. The book will help practising meditators who are looking for a way to introduce meditation to children. It will also encourage those who have not practised meditation to begin in the interest of children under their care.
