What is Meditation, Mindfulness & Guided Imagery?
Meditation produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. When you meditate, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress.
Some research suggests that meditation may help people manage anxiety disorders, depression, high blood pressure, pain and sleep problems.
There are also emotional benefits of meditation, including:
* Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
* Building skills to manage your stress
* Increasing self-awareness
* Focusing on the present
* Reducing negative emotions
Mindfulness is a form of meditation rooted in spiritual teachings in which you focus your full attention on the present moment. You acknowledge what you feel and experience, and accept it, without judgment or criticism.
Recent studies indicate that children who practice mindfulness show:
* 24% increase in positive social behaviors
* 24% decrease in aggression
* 15% improvement in math scores
* Reduction and prevention of depression-like symptoms
* Improved classroom behavior, including self control, paying attention and showing respect for others
Guided imagery is a way to access the images of the unconscious mind to help resolve problems and to gain greater insights and deeper understanding regarding a specific illness, issue, or situation. It may or may not be interactive and it usually uses prompted or suggested imagery.
Please note: In some cases, meditation can worsen symptoms associated with certain mental and physical health conditions. Be sure to consult your health care provider before meditating if you or your family members have any of these conditions.
As a key exercise in the mastery of meditation you will find that repetition brings a higher sense of peace and security.

Ratings and Reviews
Not well designed
Poorly designed. Can't set how long relaxation sounds go for. Should be able to go from lady talking to a relaxation sound. Instead it just stops and children then call out in bed as their mediation had stopped. Defeats the purpose.
Beautiful artwork, lovely guided relaxation for younger kids
My daughter really enjoys Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube and this is a similar style. While the pace of the narration is more energetic than I'm used to for meditation and sometimes it feels more like storytime, I can see why the style works well for younger kids. Even my older son who's 10 still enjoyed it and wanted to do it again.
I listen to it together with my kids so I didn't have the problem the other reviewer had with kids calling out when the audio finished.
The interface visuals are rich and beautiful and create a very appealing ambience that is also very easy for kids to explore themselves.
