About Meditation

Stop daydreaming your life away..

Mindfulness and meditation practice affords us the opportunity to increase our awareness. This allows us to shift our perception and see how our minds are fashioning the meaning of events that constantly take place around us. Over time we begin to see that the beliefs we have around any particular event, ultimately, leads to how we construct the meaning of our lives. In essence, with awareness, we can re-frame our thinking.

At The Nurtured Mind, we encourage students to explore a variety of different meditations, allowing them to feel which style is best suited to their individual needs.

Many people think they can’t meditate. The fact is, that they most certainly can. They just need to be shown how. For more on this, you might find this article helpful.

Learning to meditate with us is a lot like learning to ride a bike. You come to us, and we start off holding you up and cheering you on. Then we gently remove the training wheels and the journey becomes your own.
