Photo-elicitation Images

Meditation with Children: A Resource for Teachers and Parents (Dublin:Veritas, November 2017) suggests the importance of having conversations with children about their experience of meditation and its deep inner fruits and it explores how photo-elicitation may be used to do so. Such meaningful conversation can help to validate the child's experience of spaciousness and inner freedom in meditation and their sense of being grounded in God.

Photo-elicitation can help children to give metaphotrical expression to their personal experience of transcendence. The images below are examples of images that may be used to stimulate conversation with children about such experience, following the guidelines in the book.
