Welcome to the
"Month of Mindfulness"
Meditation Journey

“Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.” – Alan Watts

In the midst of life’s busyness, finding peace within can be a profound gift to yourself. As part of our “Month of Mindfulness” in November, we invite you to embark on a transformative meditation journey. Meditation is a timeless practice that has been cherished by thinkers, authors, and philosophers for centuries. It offers you a sanctuary of calm in the chaos of life and a powerful tool to navigate the holiday season with grace.

Meditation allows us to come home to ourselves. To the soul or self within. Grounding us to the present moment.

Why Meditate?

Meditation is more than just a relaxation technique; it’s a profound journey inward. Here’s why it’s so essential in our “Month of Mindfulness”:

Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is said to help to regulate the hormones, stabilises glucose levels, and alleviates symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A lot of evidence is coming together to show this.
Yoga Nidra promises the equivalent of two hours of deep sleep in one 30-minute practice.
Yoga Nidra is described as “dynamic sleep,” allowing the body to deeply relax while the mind stays inwardly alert.
Swami Satyananda Saraswati, who pioneered the practice in the early 1950s from ancient Tantric texts, calls it ”reaching the border between waking and sleeping states.” Western medicine would call it the confluence of alpha and delta brainwaves.
Yoga Nidra guides practitioners into the ”hypnagogic state”- the threshold between alpha and theta waves – the knife’s edge where the body ”sleeps” while the mind is lucid. Swami Karma Karuna describes it as a point ”beyond the personality, where the logical, analytical aspect of the mind is suspended.” This passive/active state allows access to subconscious memory and repressed experiences-unlike hypnosis where the person is totally inert (lacking the ability to move).
