Benefits of Meditation

Meditation is the tool to renew our mind, body and soul. 

When you meditate you increase self awareness,

increase focus and discipline, 

reduce stress and anxiety, 

increase emotional stability, 

increase memory and helps you think more clearly. 

You also become physically healthier;

lowered heart rates, 

lowered blood pressure. 

Improved sleep. 









Buddha was once asked "What have you gained from meditation?".  He replied "Nothing!  However let me tell you what I have lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of old age and Death". 

Time to Re-Connect

When we meditate we choose to re-connect with ourselves.  

What my Meditation Workshop clients are saying

Workshop was very good.  I believe that today has given me the belief that I can do this.  T

Very well explained and relaxed. S

Wonderful morning.  Feeling calmer and energised.  JF.

Wonderful few hours.  KG. 




How much time should I Meditate?

When you first start to meditate 5-10 minutes per day is a good start.  Then begin to increase to 20 minutes per day if you can.  Shorter regular meditation is more beneficial than 30-60 minutes once a week. 

Try to keep to a regular time if possible.

Incorporate meditation into your daily life as you would eat nourishing food and regular exercise. 


Old Zen Adage "You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes every day - unless your too busy: then you should sit for an hour". 



Myths of Meditation

1.  You do not have to sit on the floor in the Lotus position.

2. You do not have to say "Omm" unless you want to.

3. It is time to re-connect with yourself not disconnect, there is no pressure.

4. No one will criticise or judge you, you can simply sit and breathe.

5. It does not have to be a spiritual practice, it is your choice. 

History of Meditation

The exact date is not known, however it is believed to have been around for about 5,000 years. 


1966 Deepak Chopra and David Simon founded the Chopra Centre for Wellbeing.
