Lions Roar : January 2019
I GET IT. The idea of meditating as a family engenders a dismissive laugh. You can’t even get your kids to hang up their coats or flush the toilet. That’s okay, though. As you flush away something left behind, make way for the fantasy that’s beginning to take shape. You can almost see it... the whole lot of you, sitting together peacefully in the early evening sunlight, breathing in and out. A foundation for family meditation practice can actually be built upon just three layers: awakening curiosity for medi- tation, transforming curiosity into sustained practice, and collaboratively integrating meditation into family life. Like any well-constructed structure, the lower layer sup- ports the upper layers. In order to fully appreciate the impor- tance of our first layer, awakening curiosity for meditation, we might bring to mind a commercial from the 1970s that featured a boy who wanted to know the precise number of licks needed to reach the center of his Tootsie Pop. He asked all the animals he encountered, but none knew. Eventually, a turtle told him, “Mr. Owl will know the answer, for he’s the wisest of us all.” The Family That Meditates Together... It’s not easy, but getting your family to meditate could be the best thing you do as a parent. GAIL SILVER on how to interest your kids in breathing, seeing, and being.
