Mindfulness and Meditation are two ancient practices that can be traced back to its roots in Buddhist philosophy 2500 years ago. They can help you to stay calm, focused and better manage the pressures of life. Karuna has developed the arts of meditation and mindfulness by spending 15 years as a Buddhist monk in Thailand and Sri Lanka. Get coached personally by him.
Private Mindfulness sessions are a wonderful way to work through your needs, regardless of whether you are a beginner or are more experienced and want to deepen your practice.
Your private session will be tailored to you and is completely confidential. Mindfulness is not just an hour long session. You will learn it as a way of life.
You will be given the tools to enhance your practice every day; as you go about your daily routine, at work, at home, or whilst socialising. You will also receive short weekly audio recordings to help you meditate on your own.
Simple, yet powerful meditation techniques such as Mindfulness, Loving-kindness, Visualisation and Mantra can be tailored to your needs and personality. Coaching provides the opportunity to ask the questions you need to ask, and to work through them in an individualised way to find the answers that you are seeking.
Meditation is an activity, a thing that you do, while Mindfulness is a quality and power of mind that is deeply awareness of what’s happening – without commentary and without interference.
If mindfulness is like strength or flexibility, meditation is like running or going to the gym. Often, meditation means you’re sitting still, noticing the sensations of breath, and coming back, over and over again, as you get distracted.
Areas we can help you with
I started the sessions with insomnia and difficulties in dealing with the stresses of undertaking a challenging Masters programme. By only the third week, I was sleeping much better and was more relaxed and focused. Thank you!
I felt fantastic. So much more grounded and this was a massive lesson in dealing with stressful situations. Karuna has something really special about him.
Karuna has shown me a simple yet highly effective way of becoming calmer and focused in my day to day life. The recordings that are provided at the end of each class are helping me practise the techniques on a daily basis.
