Meditation Decreases Depression, Anxiety & Insomnia.
A large body of research has established that having a regular meditation practice produces tangible benefits for mental and physical health including:

Regular meditation dissipates accumulated stress and cultivates a state of restful alertness. There are many compelling studies showing the power of meditation to relieve stress and promote inner calm. A 2011 study published in the Evidence-based complementary and Alternative medicine journal found that full-time workers who spent a few hours a week practicing mindfulness meditation reported a significant decrease in job stress, anxiety, and depressed mood.
Meditation improves creativity and problem-solving.
We have thousands of thoughts every day, many of them are the same thoughts we had yesterday, last week, and last year. Our minds tend to get stuck in a repetitive thought loop that squeezes out the possibility for new ideas, inspiration, and creativity.
Meditation is a powerful Ritual for going beyond conditioned thought patterns into a state of expanded awareness. We connect to a field of infinite possibilities, and we open our minds to new insights intuition and ideas.
The world’s great innovators, athletes, and other high achievers have described this state of expanded awareness as “being in the flow”, being in the right place at the right time, where times stands still and instead of struggling and trying to force things to happen, everything you need comes naturally to you. You do less and accomplish more.
This higher state of consciousness is the birthplace of all creativity.
Meditation improves your relationships.
When you are feeling calm and centered you respond to situations much easier rather than reacting to them in a knee-jerk way, which often results in toxicity in our relationships.
When you learn to meditate on a regular basis, you develop the ability to calmly and objectively observe situations. You notice when we are being triggered and consciously choose how you are going to respond.
Meditation cultivates compassion and understanding which allows us to more present with loved ones and really listen to what they are saying and what they need, which is extremely important in every relationship.
Mediation is the birthplace of happiness.
The greatest gift of meditation is the sense of calm and inner peace it brings into your daily life. When you meditate you go beyond the mind’s noisy chatter into an entirely different silent place.
This is important because silence is the birthplace of happiness. Silence is the place we get our bursts of inspiration, our tender feelings of compassion and understanding and our sense of love.
When we mediate regularly all our thoughts. actions and reactions are infused with a little more love and happiness.
Tune into the Vibrations of the Universe with Primordial sound meditation.
As its name implies, Primordial Sound Meditation is based on primordial sounds, the most basic sounds or vibrations of nature. There are 108 Primordial Sound mantras, derived from the work of ancient sages who recorded the vibrations of the universe in relation to the position of the moon. When you learn Primordial Sound Meditation, the personal mantra you receive is the sound that the universe was making at the time and place of your birth, when you emerged from the non-local domain of pure potentiality into the manifest world.
According to the Primordial Sound Meditation tradition, the vibration that took you from the non-local domain into the local domain can also take you back, allowing you to journey from activity into silence—into an experience of pure awareness.
In Primordial Sound Meditation, you use a personal mantra to take your awareness within. While your everyday thoughts have both sound and meaning, a mantra is a sound without meaning. It is a pure vibration that allows your mind to settle into quieter levels of awareness and the field of infinite possibilities.
If you would like your own personal primordial sound mantra, contact reception and book a private session with Liana.
