Meditation with a Feather (Try this!)

 Duration 5mins
You will need a feather for each child. The best feathers are stiff on the top and fluffy on the sides.

  • Sitting with your feather at neck level, about 30cm away from your mouth.
  • Your eyes are partly open and gazing out at the feather. Notice the feather’s beautiful colour and shape as you do this exercise
  • Experiment with your breath by blowing soft enough to move the fluffy part of the feather and then blow hard enough to move the stiff part of the feather.
  • Do each breathe again.  This time notice which type of breathing is slow and long and which is fast and hard.
  • Notice how you feel with each breath. Does one make you feel relaxed and calm—maybe even sleepy?  Does one make you feel excited or energized? Which one?
