Breathing Colours - Guided Meditation Script

Teach Starter Publishing
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.

      Hi Zuriette, Thank you for your kind words. We understand how difficult the current situation must be for teachers, parents and students. If there is anything else Teach Starter can do, please don't hesitate to let us know.

    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.
