May I introduce you to a sweet childrens’ book that is for the child in all of us? This book was the inspiration to create this guided meditation with specific breathing techniques.
Each Breath a Smile was first given to me by one of our park friends. Denise, is a psychotherapist who actually does not treat children, but keeps this book on the reception table.
My little granddaughters loved being read this book at bedtime and afterwards I would guide them through a few breathing with tensing & relaxing exercises. It always made them feel so loved and so calm.
Fast forward… I began sending this book as a gift to adult friends and began phone consultations with breathing techniques first if I detected a level of nervousness or anxiety. In the few minutes that is required, one client’s heart rate dropped to a resting 52bpm. She commented on how relaxed she felt. May you receive the same benefits.
