Improve your focus and wellbeing through meditation
Do you want to take care of your mental health in these uncertain times? Do you feel tired and exhausted, or have difficulties concentrating with all that's going on? Do you get stressed by the overwhelming quantity of tasks and demands that you face every day? Are you wondering how you can find some peace of mind in the midst of all this?
Meditation is a powerful way to develop greater resilience, compassion, and happiness.
After many months of restrictions due to the pandemic, we are now in a period of transition. While it is great to move towards normality, these changes can be quite stressful. For many, the pandemic has been exhausting due to a decreased division between work and private life and the additional efforts the new situation required. Some are grieving the loss of loved ones or are suffering mental illness as a consequence of these difficult times. To others, this new freedom is a little frightening and they are still trying to figure out what feels safe.
It is therefore more important than ever to cultivate mental resources such as mindfulness, positivity and self-compassion – and learn how to ground yourself. Mindfulness meditation can help you adapt to this changing environment and increase your resilience towards everything life sends your way.
Rediscover your sources of wellbeing through meditation
It is possible to find an alternative to the stress and struggle you are experiencing, even when the world is flashing red. There are deep sources of wellbeing within you – no matter how stuck, helpless or frantic you might feel right now. Meditation can help you rediscover your inner happiness, peace and strength.
Scientific research has shown that most people who practice mindfulness report lasting physical and psychological benefits, including:
- Finding inner calm in the midst of the turbulences of life
- An increased ability to cope with stress
- Increased focus and concentration
- Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
- Cultivating inner qualities of compassion, gratitude and care for oneself and others
- Heightened self-confidence and the feeling of being more in control of life
- An increased ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations
- A greater sense of overall wellbeing
- Improved sleep and immune system
Feel connected to and supported by a strong community
Participants of our meditation courses and retreats have shared that meditating together online or in person helps them cultivate new habits and feel supported by a group of like-minded practitioners.
It is a time to look forward to, a momentary break to focus on yourself and your own needs – to tap into your body and notice its precious signals, to become aware of and befriend your feelings and to reconnect to what really matters in your life. That is why offering group courses and retreats is at the heart of what we do.
All of our events, whether in person or online, introduce various meditation techniques. Whether you’re looking for a course to learn to meditate on your own or deepen and extend your current practice, a workshop to explore a new theme or a retreat to dive deep into silence – we’ve got something for all levels and preferences.
We believe that mindfulness skills can make this world a better place, not only because it helps to improve individual wellbeing, but also because it leads to wiser choices and more kindness in this world.
