Why just a 'STILL MOMENT'?
Meditation and mindfulness are beautiful ways to calm and focus the mind and body. But my clients often report that its 'too difficult' to be 'in the now' - or mindful - all the time. So I teach 'still moment' breathing. This brings your attention to the many still moments in each breathing cycle. We can all be still for just a moment - that's not too much to ask. We can all be 'in the now' for just a moment.
I use this technique as a way in to other meditation and mindfulness practices.
What is the STILL MOMENT?
Many philosophies and traditions recognise the breath as sacred. It is the first thing you do when you are born – breathe in - and the last thing this body ever does for you – is breathe out.
Our breath is a sacred gift – it is the gift of life.
And, it is a gift that comes in a cycle, it has its rhythm
And within each rhythm of breath - as beats within the rhythm - we are gifted two further sacred jewels – the still moments
In these still moment we are neither coming nor going. We want for nothing, we need nothing, We are fully present and complete, We have no past to trouble us, We have no future to worry us, We look neither back nor forward, We are not remembering, We are not striving,In this one tiny moment, there is no where to be but here, nothing to do, but be.
We can harness the countless still moments in our day to access the peaceful heart we all seek
Still Moment breathing meditation allows you to find stillness and peace in the moment by moment now.
In my workshops we use the Still Moment breathing technique as a way in to a variety of meditation techniques. We explore sitting, standing, prone and moving techniques and led meditations, concentration, awareness without attachment and visualisation meditations.You will experience a variety of meditation techniques which you can put in to practice in your daily life.
