“I believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering…. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment.” HH Dalai Lama
We all want to be happy. Yet often feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear fill our daily life, disturbing our peace and happiness of mind. At times Not feeling “good enough” can saturate very air we breathe. When we learn to really work with these difficult emotions, instead of being hooked by them, and get into some kind of organized way of exercising, meditation and other alternative healing therapy. They can open up a path to contentment, creativity, presence and a vibrant compassion for ourselves and others. Let’s commit to release, relax, rejoice and return to your true self through a sustained time of meditation, yoga and Reiki healing. simply sit comfortable, close eyes, observe your body and thoughts, be like a witness and enjoy the calmness.
There are a lot of misconceptions about what meditation is and what meditation isn’t. Many people are put off meditating thinking that it’s reserved solely for hippies, mystic guru’s or those that have plenty of time on their hands. Some people believe you have to be religious to meditate; that you have to sit in uncomfortable positions for hours on end trying to achieve enlightenment, well that’s simply not true. Meditation is available to anyone and everyone, young or old, regardless of your belief system or bendy yoga capabilities!
One of the most common excuses for not meditating is:
‘But, I haven’t got the time, I’m far too busy!’
What if we told you that through regular meditation you can actually gain time! From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep our minds are constantly active. During this time, we are bombarded by 60-80,00 thoughts! That’s one thought every 1.2 seconds! Through meditation we can learn to quiet this incessant ‘monkey chatter’.
Meditation enables our thoughts to clear and when we have clarity, we can become far more productive in every aspect of our lives. Enhanced productivity = more free time and who doesn’t need more of that in this fast-paced life? During our meditation classes you will learn lots of different techniques including some Qigong (meditation to movement) that you can apply in your day to day life. Still think time is an issue? What if you could learn a meditation technique that you could do anywhere at any time? Would time still be an issue? Once you begin to experience the benefits of meditation, I guarantee you will find the time. I’ve not yet once met anyone who prefers constant busyness over the feel-good factor!
