“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.”  Wayne W. Dyer

Do you find you are constantly stressing in your work and personal life about finishing that next deadline or project and always promising yourself that once that goal is reached then I'll be happy and at peace?  While it's true that healthy levels of stress can help to boost us towards achieving our goals, too much can be toxic, making us ill and unhappy.

With regular meditation we are able to bring about real changes to our attitudes and thinking patterns, improving exponentially the overall quality of our physical and mental health and bringing lasting inner peace and an improved sense of well being.

There is now a wealth of scientific evidence showing that meditation is a natural antidote to stress and many other health related issues.

Some of meditation's many benefits:

  • Reduces stress

  • Controls anxiety

  • Improves mood and emotional health

  • Increases attention span

  • Improves sleep

  • Improves memory (may reduce age-related memory loss)

  • Combats addicitions

  • Helps to control pain

  • Boosts creativity

  • Generates new neuronal networks in the brain

  • Increases empathy and compassion

If You Can Breathe, You can Meditate

Meditation is learning to detach from the concerns of everyday thinking to observe mental activity without judgement. Practised daily, meditation brings clarity and greater focus and increases our capacity for compassion and forgiveness.  

Meditation is a skill that anyone can learn and can be integrated into everyday activities. By bringing meditation into all aspects of life we learn to live more mindfully. Without mindfulness, we miss so much of our life journey. It is like driving on autopilot; we barely notice the journey itself because our mind is caught up thinking about things that happened in the past and with concerns about the future. Mindfulness teaches present moment awareness; how to live with presence in the present.

By reigning in our wandering mind and focusing on what is happening in the moment, we experience a more heightened awareness of the beauty and vibrancy of everyday life

As we progress in our practice, we may start to experience a deepening of our connections to the people and things in the world around us and a closer bond with nature and beyond.

Practice using the breath to anchor the attention and prevent the mind wandering.
When we have control over our thoughts, we have mastered meditation. When we have mastered meditation, we have mastered life.

Zen is meditation, za zen means the still point – this is the most important teaching in Zen

 In zen practice, the eyes are half closed in soft focus and as you breathe through the nose bring the attention to the Hara which is at the centre of the body. The Hara is also the spiritual centre of the body. Breathing in, feel the coolness of the air and follow it down to the Hara. On exhaling, feel the warmth of the Hara.

“The true purpose [of Zen] is to see things as they are, to observe things as they are, and to let everything go as it goes… Zen practice is to open up our small mind.” Shunryu Suzuki (Japanese Zen Master)

A healthier, happier, and better quality lifestyle awaits you. Get in touch today and let’s get started.
