The classes are designed to help you release past traumas and old blocks, leading you to becoming more centred and embodied again and thus stronger in the world.
For the group meditation, you pick a spot in the room – it can be sitting in a chair, sitting on a cushion, leaning sitting against a wall, even lying down if you wish. There are some cushions available and plenty of yoga mats, but feel free to bring your own. (Most to all people lay down.)
The group meditation is partly guided and partly silent and runs for one hour. (There is no background music, no chanting, no mantras, no incense, no rituals.) Just complete natural healthy stillness.
In that time you are gently guided to go within and re-connect with yourself in a deeper genuine way to help release past holdings and stresses. The guidance is not scripted, so it will also be slightly different each time, depending on the energy and requirements of the group that night. (Each night is different.)
You can allow movement, you do not have to be completely still and quiet.
It’s not about looking good, it’s about connecting with being more real again.
It can be likened to an active meditation, or a therapeutic mindfulness process designed to re-connect you with more of your real inner spirit which then helps old stresses and problems to release.
This class is a product of over over 12 years of training, and over 25 years of private practice work and research with thousands of clients and what works to help people embody themselves to heal the past. It incorporates aspects of Mindfulness, Vipassana, Meditation, Somatics, the Body Psychotherapies, P.S.H. Therapy and the work of Eckhart Tolle (Author of The Power of NOW) as well as the latest methods in healing the limiting effects of past trauma and other emotional issues.

Inner and Outer balance are so important to achieving long term health and success in life. In our western culture we spend a lot of time focusing on the ‘doing’ out there and not enough on the ‘inner’, in here.
This class is designed to help you bring in more of the balance that you probably need. Giving the inner part of you the attention that it requires to help reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue, in your life (to name a few.)
When your poor intellect is going around in circles trying to solve your problems, it’s nice to know there are things and therapies and classes you can go to, to help break free of the old conditioning and help embody yourself and align yourself internally in a very healthy and powerful way.
This class offers the space for you to create more present moment inner and outer fulfillment, health and wellbeing in your life.
Reading Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now is highly recommended.
