All day long, you breathe — in and out, in and out — without even thinking about it. But did you know that you can play with your breath, use it to take you on an adventure? All you have to do is find a comfy spot and close your eyes.
Does your breath sound like ocean waves? Like the wind before a storm or a breeze at the start of spring? Can you feel it all the way down to the tips of your toes? By the time you open your eyes, you might just feel a little lighter, calmer, more relaxed.
Bill Meyer is the author of two adventure chapter books for kids. He’s also written a picture book for kids that leads them through a guided breathing meditation. The book is called, Big Breath. He also published a guide for meditation in the classroom called, Three Breaths and Begin. His latest book published in November 2021 is “Healing Breath” A Guided Meditation for Kids Through Nature. He holds degrees from Dartmouth, Harvard and has a PhD from NYU in Education.
