A Handful of Quiet presents Pebble Meditation, one of the best known and most innovative meditation practices developed by Thich Nhat Hanh as part of the Plum Village community’s practice with children. Designed to involve children in a hands-on and creative way to learn meditation, Pebble Meditation is a playful and fun activity for parents and educators to do with children that touches on their interconnection with nature, helping to relieve stress, increase concentration, nourish gratitude, and deal with difficult emotions.
A Handful of Quiet is a concrete activity that parents and educators can introduce to children in school settings, in their local communities, or at home, in a way that is meaningful and inviting. Any adult wishing to plant seeds of peace, relaxation, and awareness in children will find this unique meditation guide helpful. Children can also enjoy doing pebble meditation on their own.
