To many meditations brings to mind a vision of someone sitting cross-legged with eyes closed while chanting ohm…
The main goal of meditation is to bring oneself to a quiet state of mind. To become quiet and focused and come back into energetic alignment with your True Authentic Self. Living in the age of technology has its pros and cons but mostly it’s a rat race for the sake of survival and we lose touch with listening to our innate selves.
Anybody can learn how to meditate but we aim to find you the method that best suits your unique being!
Once you’ve acquired this taste for a connection you will find your body screaming for more! Being “in the NOW”, being connected to your Higher Self, to Source, to your Guides, and being One with All is a state of consciousness nobody will understand until they have experienced it for themselves.
You will find too many to mention sites and guides toward exploring this method of connection but with a bit of “homework” you’ll find which method works best for you. Perhaps you feel more comfortable in your own private zone with relaxing music or like many others you like to get together with others in guided group meditations.

How to Start
Besides clicking on the “Contact” tab below, why not try a Guided Meditation?
Guided Meditation is, in great part, a modern phenomenon. It is an easier way to start, and you will find guided meditations based on several of the above traditions.
The practice of meditation requires some dose of determination and willpower. In the past, people that were into meditation were more committed to it, and also had strong ideals fuelling their motivation. Their life was more simple, with fewer distractions.
We live in very different times now. Our life is busier. Willpower is a less common personal asset. Distractions are everywhere, and meditation is often sought as a means to develop better health, enhance performance, or improve oneself.
For these reasons, guided meditation can indeed be a good way to introduce you to the practice. Once you get the hang of it and wish to take your practice to the next level, I would urge you to try meditation unassisted by audio. It is up to you to decide when you feel like taking this step.
Guided Meditation is like cooking with a recipe. It’s a good way to start, and you can eat the food you make like this. But once you understand the main principles and flavors, you can cook your own dish. It will have a different, unique taste; it will be tailored for you, and more powerful. And then you will not want to use the recipe anymore – unless if you are trying a dish of another cuisine.
