LTRP Note: According to the article below, the two remaining Beatles (the musical group from the 60s) will be teaching children around the world to meditate. But they aren’t the only ones who are putting kids in touch with their higher, mystical selves. From AWANA clubs, to Focus on the Family’s Odyssey to Eugene Peterson’s Message Bible for Kids to Rob Bell’s Nooma films in the Christian schools, Christian leaders and teachers are bringing kids to the contemplative, mystical waters as well.

“Surviving Beatles reunite to promote kid’s meditation”
(CNN) – Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will reunite on stage next month [Change Begins Within Benefit Concert in conjunction with David Lynch Foundation] to raise money to teach transcendental meditation to children around the world to “help provide them a quiet haven in a not-so-quiet world,” McCartney said.
The star-studded list of performers who will join them include two musicians who were with the Beatles when they journeyed to India’s Himalayan foothills in 1968 to learn transcendental meditation from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
“In moments of madness, it has helped me find moments of serenity,” McCartney said in the concert announcement.
Profits from the April 4 show at New York’s Radio City Music Hall will fund the David Lynch Foundation’s program, which has already taught 60,000 children around the world how to meditate, foundation spokesman Steve Yellin said.Click here for source.
