“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes every day, unless you’re too busy … Then you should sit for an hour”
“I have found the sessions very relaxing and interesting to learn various aspects of meditation. Suzi is an excellent teacher, and classes have made me aware of the importance of finding a few minutes every day to relax.”
Why is meditating so beneficial?
A great deal of research demonstrates that mindfulness meditation techniques actively promote happiness and act as effective antidotes to the negative effects of stress, particularly anxiety and depression. They can enhance our relationships and help us sleep more deeply. In short they can improve our overall quality of life.
The purpose of meditation is to make our mind tranquil and calm. If our mind is peaceful, we will not be so concerned by worries and mental discomfort, and we are more likely to find happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.
What will be the results?
The results may not be felt instantaneously. Benefits are often subtle at first and then develop gradually. After a while you will wonder how you ever coped without your meditation practice! Daily practice improves the minds’ ability to be calm, to be focused and above all, to find contentment in life.
How should I start?
You can request a one to one session to discuss your individual needs and address them using mindfulness meditation. Your first session will begin with an initial consultation, and then you will led through a gentle practice and offered techniques you can fit into your daily life.
