"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 is a lovely and safe way for 8 to 11 year old children to relax and chill out. They will love visiting their own special quiet place where they can develop a sense of wonder and feel: calm & peaceful, happy & relaxed, safe & loved. With the use of these CDs, children learn to develop their own inner resources to cope with the big, wide world. This recording includes three tracks: "Welcome to The Magic Garden 9.02"; "The Magic Balloon 10.37; and, "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. Each CD also includes instructions for a creative activity linked to the CD content. For "The Magic Garden", the activity includes making your own worry tree.
This activity develops a strategy to dispel worry and apprehension.
