This week's meditations have been focused around the breath.
In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali it is suggested that a rhythmic breath can extend into a rhythmic, balanced life; calm and rejuvenating.
It's easy to set aside a few minutes of each day to notice our breath - first become aware of the natural rhythm of your breathing and then adapt it, if it feels comfortable, to extend the outbreath by 2 counts longer than the inbreath. This outbreath also includes the natural pause at the beginning and end of each breath.
As with all meditation, don't overdo it and remember that the aim is harmony.
And breathe... ... See MoreSee Less

This week's drop in meditation groups meditated by visualising specific colours and noticing the effects. One person found visualising red very energising, another that it made them feel angry, sky blue was found to be more soothing and expansive. Choosing their own colour enabled people to nourish and rejuvenate themselves through the simple process of visualising themselves flooded with colour, inside and out...what colour do you need right now? Close your eyes, breathe and see what colour you are drawn to - allow it to fill your body and expand around you - a glorious bubble of colour...right now I am drawn to a soft yellow, a gentle gold... ...

This week's drop in meditation groups have been exploring the idea that different crystals may have different effects on us during meditation. As a firm believer in experimentation before I take anything for truth we sat with different stones in quiet contemplation to see what, if anything, came up. Some of us had quite profound experiences, others just enjoyed the peace of a tactile meditation. The vibrational motion of an atom in a crystal determines the fundamental properties of that mineral- what impact this then has on us is a personal path of discovery... ... See MoreSee Less
In this week's meditation groups we have been enjoying 'aura-soma' meditations - a gentle surrendering to the healing colour, scent and qualities of the Aura soma pomanders and quintessences. A gloriously peaceful and nurturing meditation which encourages a release of anything which no longer serves us and enables us to embrace our gifts. ... See MoreSee Less

This week's drop in meditation groups have been exploring listening mindfully to external sounds and then moving into listening internally for our own 'note'. Each one of us has our own unique harmonic resonance- the note of our physical self vibrates in harmony with the note of our higher consciousness. Each time we make a deliberate connection with our higher consciousness the resonance becomes stronger and the note is clearer. ... See MoreSee Less
In this week's meditation groups we have been practising meditation with mudras - specific hand gestures that help develop greater concentration and focus on one level and have far deeper esoteric meanings too.
Try touching each finger tip to the thumb tip one after the other - focus on the feeling of contact or energy between the thumb and finger tip and breathe... Each gesture has a specific, life-enhancing meaning behind it... ... See MoreSee Less

This week's mindfulness meditation is based on the Buddhist metta loving-kindness meditation, sending love out into the world.
The general idea is to sit quietly and imagine what qualities you would like in your life - perhaps good health, security, contentment... When we think about it, just about everyone on the planet wants the same basic things - we are mostly the same at heart.
-Next spend some time directing these good wishes to yourself - wish yourself well - nourish and nurture you.
-Then imagine these kind thoughts going to someone you care for; silently repeat your positive affirmations or imagine them well...
-Next it's to someone you don't really know, perhaps the person at the checkout, or a neighbour down the street.
-Then it's on to someone you find challenging.
-And finally on to everyone in the whole world, perhaps imagine your loving kindness being spread like fairy-dust around the planet. ... See MoreSee Less
