KERRIE M PARRY is an experienced Primary School teacher who started using meditation as a classroom strategy in the UK. She started using simple meditations to help a few highly stressed children in her class and was astonished by the effect meditation had on not only the targeted children, but many of the other students in her class. Kerrie has studied meditation and been a student of Yoga for many years, she currently runs “Rainbowcrystal Connection” After School Meditation Classes.
Kerrie believes that meditation is an effective and easy to use solution to a variety of classroom problems and an innovative way for schools to include a whole school focus on wellbeing. She understands that teachers have enough to do without adding meditation to their “never ending list” of stuff to do. This is why she is excited to offer guided visualisation as a teaching and behaviour management strategy.
“After a few sessions, even the most unlikely kids (and teachers) will be begging for the peace of meditation time.” Kerrie M Parry
