My three year old son James came and sat in meditation with me last night. I was sitting there meditating before bed and he came out of his room and looked at me, as I sat on my meditation cushion facing the wall. 

Without a word he went back to his room, grabbed a pillow, and returned. He put the pillow on the floor next to me and sat in the exact same way as I was sitting and faced the wall as well. We sat together in meditation for nine minutes.

He’s normally a hyper and loud child, so this was strange. I will let him join me any time that he tries. It was a good experience.
