What if meditation for women is not what you’ve been taught?

 

Do you struggle to maintain a meditation practice or believe you are doing it wrong? Over the years teaching and sharing meditation, I’ve come to understand meditation often requires a different approach for women.

What I notice when women begin to cultivate a meditation practice, is the commonality of all they are greeted with in the feminine experience. This often includes intense feelings, lots of thoughts, energetic baggage and let’s not forget the very real murmurs of unmet heart longings. In offering an embodied experience of meditation, women can more playfully find a doorway into a life of greater ease, beauty and meaning.

Here is what we know. Women are innately attuned to “taking care of everyone before themselves”. They are naturally empathetic, energetically and intuitively tuned in to their family, community and the greater world and cosmos. Often the most challenging step in our culture, is self-permission to slow down and create space to cultivate a practice.

In a world of ever increasing stress, women require the space to meet themselves with love, kindness and acceptance. To allow the full experience of a women awakening at this time, which is – let’s be honest – sometimes messy, yet wildly intuitive, highly sensory and a potent doorway to a life of ease, beauty and deep meaning.

Can you feel yourself held by the earth, by the cycles of nature, by the breath?

Open to the mystery and medicine of your unique feminine Self.

MEDITATION FOR WOMEN

{ 8 Week Introductory Class }

Meditation for Women is a warm and welcoming introductory class for women seeking a nurturing approach to meditation. Facilitated as a 8 week class, it offers a supportive space for women to experience meditation as an intuitive and engaging practice. Grounded in feminine wisdom, participants explore an array of meditation practices to ease stress, cultivate self-kindness and gather conscious tools to navigate everyday life.

The classes can be enjoyed by beginners or experienced meditation students; all women who desire a heartfelt connection with themselves. Attendance over eight weeks supports women to intuitively establish a practice that embraces their unique essence. One in which unfolding awareness can be nurtured, and stress and imbalance naturally dissipates. No rules. No right-ways. The Guru is you.
