Breathing Colours - Guided Meditation Script

PDF | 3 pages

A guided meditation script for teachers based on the visualisation of colours.

Use this teaching resource when practising mindfulness with your students.

The printable resource provides teachers with a script that can be spoken aloud to guide students through a mindful visualisation and breathing meditation. This activity uses the ideas of imagining the breath as a colour to help improve focus and awareness.  The “Breathing Colours” meditation helps students develop conscious relaxation skills.

    I meant to add that I put some meditation music on Spotify for the backdrop. It turned out really well.

    Thanks for a great resource. I pre-recorded it for my students to use at home during Covid.

    as much as this seems like a good resource, it is not advised by professionals for children. If the activity is meant to calm a person down, suggestions of “pretend this or that….” is more harmful to children already dealing with mental issues. The other activities are definitely safer.
