The Magic Garden (CD/MP3 Download)
‘The Magic Garden’ is a superb high quality meditation recording by Heather Bestel. Heather is a very experienced psychotherapist who has worked with children developing and building their self esteem and confidence since 1994.
This CD/MP3 is a lovely and safe way for 8 to 11 year old children to relax and switch off. They will love visiting their own special quiet place where they can develop a sense of wonder and feel: calm and peaceful, happy and relaxed, safe and loved. With the use of these CDs/MP3s children learn to develop their own inner resources to cope with the big, wide world. This recording includes three tracks:
1. Welcome to The Magic Garden (9:02)
2. The Magic Balloon (10:37)
3. Floating down the River (12:20)
‘The Magic Garden’ is ideal for using at home: during chill out time, at bedtime, on long journeys, before exams or anytime children need to switch off and relax.
For use in school: at the beginning or end of each class, in the chill out zone, and during circle time. The CD version also includes instructions for a creative activity. For ‘The Magic Garden’ the activity includes making your own worry tree. This activity develops a strategy to dispel worry and apprehension.
