Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation

MBSM is choosing to be more fully present, connecting deeply with yourself and finding the Stillness which always lies at the essential core of your being.

Many other forms of mindfulness meditation involve choosing to place attention on present moment experience but fall short of turning the meditator’s awareness to the Stillness at the core of their being – their true nature.

In these other forms of mindfulness meditation, the meditator gives more attention to the contents of their awareness e.g. breath, sensations, feelings and thoughts but not to the still and silent Presence which observes these contents. This is the subtlety and depth of MBSM. 

MBSM can be taught individually or as part of a group and usually consists of approximately 90 minutes teaching over 8 weeks. There is an expectation that the client will practice between 20 and 40 minutes per day for 6 of 7 days a week. 

Reiki

Reiki is non invasive, hands on or off treatment where the client remains fully clothed and either lying or sitting. The beauty of Reiki is that it has its own intelligence. It works in harmony with the individual. Reiki is a natural energy and flows freely through the physical body via pathways called meridians and energy centres called chakras. Reiki flows around us in our energy field or aura. This energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When the flow of this energy is disrupted it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. Reiki energy is responsive to physical and emotional influences. These influences can attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the free flow of energy. This could cause physical or emotional dis-ease.

It is not essential for the client to believe in Reiki for it to be effective. Treatments are 60 minutes. 

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy treatments include a massage with only 100% pure and natural essential oils and bases. Treatments are carried out in private.

Aromatherapy massage treatments are generally more relaxing and less vigorous than a deep tissue or sports massage. The main aim of an Aromatherapy treatment is to allow the therapeutic action of the essential oils used to enter the body and have optimal benefit. Treatments are 60 minutes
