“We meditate so that we can inundate our whole being with the powerful presence of peace "
Finding stillness from within is essential to our overall well being and peace of mind, but especially in these challenging times. A regular practice of meditation has been proven to help strengthen our immune system too and our resiliency to stress during challenging times. So do join me for these group sessions. The sessions will include some different guided practises to help us calm the mind and tune into the nourishing stillness within, and we will sometimes take a few minutes for chanting mantras for world peace to send positive , healing light from our hearts into the world.
Meditation is a practice like yoga postures. It can take dedicated effort to calm the restless monkey mind and touch the peace within. The peace is like the sun...it is always there, shining, but the clouds sometimes prevent it from revealing itself.....for us the clouds are the countless thoughts and emotions rushing here and there, but with the help of some simple, time proven techniques, combined with practice and patience we can calm and reduce the number of thought waves and allow the sun to shine through, helping to bring more positive light into our day.
Group practice is always beneficial too as there is a group energy that can support our own personal practice...sometimes if our minds are particularly busy that day, tuning into the energy of the group can lift us and strengthen our focus, helping us go deeper within.
" By stopping the waves of thoughts you come to understand your true nature
and discover the wisdom and tranquillity that lie within. "
There is nothing more valuable than a peaceful mind. So many times our mind rushes about looking for happiness.
Meditation turns the mind inwards to find that stillness that lies beyond the thoughts. Meditation is the practice by which there is constant observation of the mind. It can give profound benefits in terms of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well being. It brings increased awareness, attention and clarity of mind, helps us recover and manage stress better and generally improves our overall well being and energy levels.
