Mindfulness & Meditation

Everyday life is so busy and frantic and full of challenges and stress, that we have forgotten how to live a joyful life. We try so hard to be happy and we tell ourselves what we need to do or accomplish so we can achieve happiness – and in the process we often end up missing the most important parts of our lives.

We are offering:

Individual Mindfulness sessions

Group Mindfulness sessions
for all various age groups: young children, adolescents
/teenagers, adults as well as seniors.

Group Mindfulness and Self-Care workshops

for Health-Care Professionals, Teachers, First Responders, Real Estate professionals and other professional groups & teams that would benefit from learning practical tools and strategies to be applied in daily life as well as in professional activities – developing stress-relief, effective communication, team cohesion and internal balance.

Please contact us for more details.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is awareness, cultivated by paying attention in a sustained and particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”

~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

What is Meditation?

Meditation is the practice of turning your attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on bodily sensations, or on a word or phrase known as a mantra. In other words, meditation means turning your attention away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment.

Benefits for introducing mindfulness meditation practice into your life:

Summary/examples of the mindfulness meditations offered:

Breath and Body meditation – exploring the ‘automatic pilot’ or the thoughts and patterns repeated every day at home or at work and encourages exploration of what happens when you ‘wake up’ and re-train our thoughts.
Body scan mindfulness-meditation – exploring the difference between thinking about a sensation and feeling or experiencing it. Understanding the difference between ‘living in our head’ and experiencing our senses.
Colour meditation – exploring visualization of various colours and your ability to either see, hear, feel or know colours and their calming, relaxing effect.
Sounds and Thoughts meditation – understanding your thoughts as events that come and go just like sounds or just like feelings – seeing them, observing them come and go with awareness and a different perspective.
Exploring Difficulties meditation– learning how to face rather than avoid difficulties arising in day to day life with a spirit of curiosity and compassion.
Loving-Kindness meditation – exploring how negative thoughts can gradually be reduced and dissipated when you cultivate loving-kindness and compassion and acts of generosity and gratitude.
