Here’s a Sample of the “Guided Meditation Script on Sounds and Silence for Kids” Guided Meditation Script:

We’re going to play a game listening to this sound [ring your chime or app].

You’ll try to listen to the sound all the way until it disappears–going, going, gone.
When you hear it’s gone, you’ll let me know by raising your hand.

Sit or lie down and get comfortable.
And let your eyes gently close.
Be nice and cosy.

When I make the sound, try to listen with more than just your ears.
Listen with your body and your mind and your heart.

When we really listen to something, we’re listening with much much more than our ears.

I’m going to make the sound a few times now.

Listen while the sound is getting quieter and quieter and, when you don’t hear it any more, quietly put up your hand.

Then put your hand back down for the next time.
Ok here we go.

[ring the bell a few times, letting the sound recede into silence each time]

Keep listening with your ears and with as much of you as you can.
It’s like the sound fills you up.

If you forget and start thinking about something else, that’s ok.
Just start listening again.
