Are you curious about meditation but not sure it’s for you, or apprehensive to go along to a course?

Not sure what to expect and wondering if it’ll just be a bunch of weirdos … chanting, oming, wearing funny clothes, or fill in the blank _____?

I get where you’re coming from because over the years I’ve been meditating I’ve certainly come across people like this.  I know it can be very off-putting and there can often be something very fake and unauthentic about them.

As with all things in life though, there are different types and styles of meditation and different people drawn to all of them.  And none of them are immune to fake and inauthentic people that you want to steer clear of!

Meditation has much mystery and misconceptions surrounding it.  Partly because of the above, and partly because it’s a very hard thing to describe in words and especially for our logical minds to comprehend.

We’ve grown up being taught how to ‘do’ things, but we didn’t get much instruction on being comfortable ‘just being’ ourselves.  So it’s common for people to be tentative when it comes to actually giving it a go.

The trick is to find a style and person teaching it that’s a match for you.  Someone you trust and feel comfortable with.

Science is beginning to be able to explain what happens in people’s brains and nervous systems when they meditate, and how this translates to the many benefits experienced.  Because of this, meditation and mindfulness are fast becoming much more mainstream than they ever have been, which is a welcome change.

I’ve been meditating on and off for almost 25 years and know from my own experience what meditation can do on so many levels.  It helped me heal from Chronic Fatigue and continues to enrich my life in meaningful ways.  That’s why I now have a passion to help people move past their initial reluctance, guide and support them in developing their own regular meditation & mindfulness practice.

It’s great to now have the science and a lot more resources at our fingertips to be able to help explain it in a way our logical minds can better relate to.  This helps people let go of some of their hesitation and take that first step to experiencing what meditation can do for them too, because you’ll only experience the benefits from actually doing it.  Just like you won’t get fit unless you actually do regular exercise.

I run 6 week Meditation & Mindfulness for Everyday Life courses each term.  You can learn more about the course, including a list of what’s covered each week, plus get a better feel for me and the atmosphere of my courses here.

You will know if it resonates with you, and if so, I would love you to join me for my next round of courses xx
