"Blue Balloon" is a 5-minute mindfulness meditation session with guided prompts. I wrote this meditation for the use of my middle school students who are studying Buddhism. I recorded the music personally, and am available for composition and freelance music production, as well as releasing free music weekly on Danny Hauger Podcasts.
The focus on this mindfulness training is a beginner's guide to breathing deep and smoothly, and focusing on the energy transferring through the body with each breath. This meditation also features a visualization of a blue balloon. Any group or individual can use this meditation video. This mindfulness can also be used in any grade level, not just middle school.
Meditating in the classroom is a wonderful habit that builds classroom community.
This video includes the PDF of the script, in case you want to verbally lead your class or use a different soundtrack or song. This video is ready to be played for your class and has recorded prompts!
