The Guided Relaxation column has long been one of the most popular features of our digital magazine.
Guided relaxation and meditation helps your child develop mindfulness and the ability to calm and relax their body and mind at will. Meditation has many benefits for kids, and these scripts are a wonderful tool to help them develop a lifelong appreciation for the power of mindfulness.
Now you don’t have to flip through all of our back issues to find these treasured guided imagery scripts. These peaceful guided relaxation scripts are written especially for Green Child readers by Mellisa Dormoy of ShambalaKids.
Her meditation audios help children and teens relieve stress and anxiety, improve self-esteem, feel great (mind, body, and spirit) and develop a positive mental attitude at school and at home.
Browse the topics below to see which guided relaxation script will most benefit your child. The titles in this section lead to posts on our website where you can read them aloud to your child from your tablet or phone.
Or if you prefer to download and print them, you’ll find PDF versions of these guided imagery scripts when you subscribe below.
Once you choose a script for your child, you may want to yourself to find the rhythm prior to reading it aloud to your child. When you’re ready and your child is relaxed, simply read it in a calm voice, pausing to let the words and feelings sink in.
