Slow Down

Experience the stillness within

meditationIn this digital age and fast-paced world, many are searching for physical relaxation, emotional calm, and relationship joy.

Mindfulness and meditation are powerful practices, which for thousands of years, have moved from us from the activity of the mind into the silence and stillness that reside within us.

They are a tool for rediscovering your real wholeness, creativity, and vitality for life. They allow you to access your body’s inner intelligence and healing resources.

Through mindfulness and meditation, we allow silence and stillness into our mind and body to create a life of greater compassion and fulfillment.

This is a journey to the center of our very being, to emotional freedom, the reawakening of our culturally unconditioned self.

Meditation and mindfulness isn’t about forcing your mind to be quiet; it’s about experiencing the silence that is already there. Silence is the birthplace of happiness, purpose, and infinite possibilities.

From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection.

Practice

Learn the art of being

Explore and deepen your practice

Scientific research is able to show that mindfulness and meditation can balance out our nervous system and mitigate the effects of chronic stress that we are all vulnerable to in this hyper-stimulated age.

Mindfulness and meditation also offer physical health benefits, emotional and mental regulation, and spiritual growth as creativity and purpose arise.

With practice you can learn the art of paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgement.

We will guide you through the joys and challenges that emerge as you are learning to connect more fully with yourself in each moment.

Mindfulness and meditation offer us a different experience of our self and the world. They facilitate a vibration that helps you slip into the space between your thoughts.

This state of deep relaxation helps quite noisy internal chatter and allows you to experience a stillness that will both energize and calm you in every day life.

Benefits

Benefits of Mindfulness & Meditation

The science behind it

Scientific research is now able to show that regular practice of mindfulness and/or meditation offers numerous health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, strengthening the immune system, and releasing stress and fatigue.

In fact, practicing mindfulness or meditation for half an hour provides more psychological rest than a full night’s sleep.

These practices are particularly effective for alleviating the symptoms of depression, anxiety and trauma, supporting healing and a renewed sense of hope.

They can both be used to support the benefits of therapy, or as a stand-alone practice for the promotion of well-being.

As stress is greatly eliminated through mindful and meditative practice, our minds and bodies begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality, and energy.
