Meditation not Medication
1barefootgirl: When I was 11/12, I was taught meditation by a grade school teacher who took it upon himself to do that…I think I was one of the very few who caught on though… Have been doing it ever since (getting a lot of other instruction and practice a long the way). :-) dannyfal: reblog if you would support a nationwide campaign to introduce teens to meditation
