The mindful stillness that we cultivate in meditation has been shown to provide a wealth of physical and emotional benefits including the ability to self-manage stress, positively influence our inner biochemistry, improve our health and sense of well-being, gain more restful sleep and creativity, increase our ability to cultivate positive emotions, and build a greater connection with self and others. Which is why I call meditation a 'life skill'” – Sarah, Quiet Mind Meditation Are you ready to learn simple tools to manage stress, anxiety, pain & overwhelm (day to day life)??

Here's what a participant from a recent mindfulness meditation course had to say about meditating with Sarah... “It is very obvious that Sarah is an accomplished meditation practitioner. She is very knowledgeable about the history and practices of meditation around the world, and is up to date on the latest research studies. It was a freezing evening when we had our first class, but Sarah created such a cosy atmosphere for the members in our group that there was an instant feeling of rapport in the room. She has a very easy and calming voice to listen to when she leads the group sessions, and you find yourself easily drifting into a naturally more relaxed state of mind. Arriving at the class in a rather stressed state, I was amazed to find my racing thoughts settling down and taking me to a far calmer place. I realised just how important for my health it is to be able to use meditation in my daily life. Thank you Sarah!” Jenny Ready for some peace & calm on the inside??? Book now
