looking for a good meditation routine.

I find myself in dire need of a calming and centering meditation routine. Also it would be helpful if my 4 year old son can do it with me. Any ideas??

It may be helpful to begin with simple visualization exercises combined with circular patterned breathing. Going through the colors and chakras is good and there are several exercises here on the site.

Thank you Friday. Blessed be. Any advice for teaching my 4 year old son how to do it? He has adhd and severe anger problems with violent tendencies.

MM,

for a 4 year old, some form of "active meditation", like walking a labyrinth or following a finger labyrinth, might be helpfull because this is something that doesn't require sitting still and is relatively easy to explain. A finger labyrinth can be printed, drawn or sculpted (a meditative project in itself), if you have the space you can create a temporary or fixed labyrinth in the garden. Google or pinterest are full of examples.
The labyrinth is an excellent tool to center yourself and to let go of any frustrations that could result in violent outbursts. On the way in, at every turn, stop for a moment, take a deep breath, let one "issue" float away and continue the path. On the way out, you could picture having fun with something that normally gets him/you worked up.

Good luck finding something that works!

Thank you so much. I will definitely try that. Probably the finger one first, as my yard is still under a couple feet of snow. Lol
