Meditation

Meditation can be defined in many words by many experts. My definition of meditation is: “Meditation is an ongoing practice of moment to moment experiences that cultivate an inner peace, aiming to go beyond thought and into awareness (Restful Alertness)”

So why do we meditate, why do we sit in silence or listen to guided imagery meditations? We do this for too many reasons to list, but be sure that meditation is a practice that comes with endless benefits. The benefits range from health benefits to psychological benefits and the most important benefit of all is that meditation develops awareness and awakens an inner part of us that we never knew existed. The inner-self is so powerful, creative, loving, and passionate and when we tap into this aspect of self – LIFE CHANGES FOREVER.

Connecting Women’s Circles

This class has been running since 2011 and attracts women who are spiritually in tuned and are seeking a space that contains truth telling, healing and transformation. Each woman is respected, her story is unique and her healing journey is one of great transformation. Meditation is our greatest focus, (we meditate for 30-40 minutes), yet truth and storytelling is a significant part in our class. A woman’s story shared is often the healing of another woman. Women heal women as we come together as equals united by common purpose to heal ourself and others.

Our circle include a holistic approach to healing women and provides a space to explore some of the following:

  • Relaxation
  • Guided Visualisations
  • Awareness of breath
  • Promote rest and recuperation
  • Discover the inner self
  • Learn to love yourself
  • Reduce unavoidable stress
  • Tapping into creativity
  • Making sense of life experiences
  • Exploring and sharing knowledge
  • Learn how to Respond versus React
  • Avoid judgement
  • Truth versus ego
  • Mindfulness
  • Understanding “life lessons” and “our spiritual teachers”
When you enter my room, I hope the weight of the world, lifts off your shoulders as you take your shoes off, when you enter my space and look out to the bush, I hope a feeling of peace and calm fills your body.
When you enter the circle, I hope your heart opens and feels pure love.
When I guide you through a meditation, I hope your mind becomes more clear.
When you leave, I hope you feel more relaxed, more loved and more beautiful than when you walked through the door.

WHY Women’s Circles?

Women today are busy, stressed, tired and overwhelmed and as a result, lose touch with their inner self and with other women. The Connecting Women’s Circle is designed to bring women together, to share stories, to build relationships and to grow spiritually. There is something beautiful about feminine energy. When like minded feminine energies come together, miracles happen.

Two Simple Breathing Techniques

Calming Breathing Technique

  • Ensure you are comfortable either sitting in a chair or lying on the floor
  • Now take a breath in for 4 seconds (through the nose if possible)
  • Hold your breath for 2 seconds
  • Now release your breath taking 6 seconds (through the nose if possible) then slightly pause before breathing again (repeat above)

Breath Awareness

  • Observe only the “in breath” and the “out breath”
  • Your purpose is to concentrate only on the in and out breath at the tip of the nose.
  • Each breath is a natural breath (do not take in deep breaths)
  • This can be practiced for up to 10 -60 minutes (as long as you choose)
