Meditation to Calm the Mind

Enjoy this Buddhist inspired meditation using the mantra Om Ah Hum for inner peace and calm.

The mantra is chanted silently with each sound representing a different part of the breath. The sound Om is chanted in the inhale and held at the heart centre to cleanse our physical body. Ah is then for the speech and chanted between the inhale and exhale the awareness of this sound is held at the throat for clarity in our speech, and finally the Hum sound is for the mind inspiring a sense of peace and chanted silently on the exhale.

Listen below for further guidance and this blissful mantra that purifies our body, speech and mind

Mantra Meditation for Grounding

The Ganesh Mantra one of my favourite mantras and one I use for when I personally feel unsteady and in need of grounding.

Ganesh is the god of beginnings and the remover of obstacles. We turn to Ganesh when we feel we need guidance on our path.  Perhaps there’s a lot of change occurring in your life or you’re going through some kind of transition, making you feel unstable and in need of grounding. If this is the case then this mantra is perfect for grounding us back down to earth.  With the head of an elephant on the body of a teenage boy, Ganesh represents, strength, courage, willpower and wisdom as he uses his trunk to clear the way of obstacles from his path. You too can embody the qualities of this deity to find your own inner power.

During this meditation we’ll recite the mantra Om Glaum Gam Ganapataye Swaha 9 times however you can do this for the full 108.

Enjoy listening

Summer Solstice Guided Meditation

Free Guided Summer Solstice Meditation

Summer Solstice on the 21st June is the longest day of the year marking the beginning of Summer and the mid point of our seasons, this is an ideal time for contemplation and reflection.

This is definitely one of my favourite times of the year, and a piviotal moment to really notice what I’ve learnt and achieved over the last 6 months. We all want to grow and flourish but sometimes its worth sitting and listening to our inner voice, especially when we’re not being influenced by external forces.

During this guided meditation we focus on Samana Vayu and Manipura Chakra as these both reside at our core and the centre of our being. A place where we balance our mind and emotions of everything we have taken in, from the food we eat to the information that we listen to, basically all we imbibe. Here we have the power of discernment, and by keeping a sense of harmony within we can use it to guide us on our path. Now is the time to really listen to ourselves understanding what we have learnt over the last 6 months. What is it that we need to cast aside? What do we want to carry forward that will help us continue to grow?

All you’ll need for this meditation is a comfortable place to sit and perhaps a journal and pen to write down any reminders for the months ahead.

Happy Summer Solstice Maria x

Summary of what to expect…..

Flights from Liverpool arrive in Bergerac mid afternoon on the Tuesday and you will be collected by car for the short transfer. On arrival at the retreat one of the first things you will notice is how calm and peaceful the area is. The nearest town is five miles away, so the only sounds are from local wildlife and farm animals.
After receiving a welcome drink you will be given a tour of the grounds before gathering for your first evening workout (either yoga in the traditional French barn or fitness session overlooking rolling fields and vineyards). This will be followed by dinner served in the garden of the cottage, with excellent local wines available at very reasonable prices.

The remaining days will begin with an uplifting morning yoga session or fitness workout followed by a hearty and nutritious continental style breakfast. Guests will then be free to spend the day as they wish, with packed lunches provided. Pedal bikes and maps will be available for guests to explore the beautiful local countryside, or they can simply relax around the grounds and by the natural pool.
Optional short day trips will be provided to give guests an opportunity to explore and appreciate the local area. On site massages will also be available and these are top quality at very reasonable prices.
Guests will come together in the early evenings for relaxing yoga and meditation, or more high intensity fitness training. The days will end with an evening meal based mainly around local fresh and seasonal vegetables with lean meats and fish (vegetarians and vegans will be catered for).

Friday evening will be slightly different in that the group will head out for a wine tasting session followed by a meal in a lovely restaurant in Eymet.

There will be a final yoga session on the Saturday morning followed by a lazy brunch to end the retreat.

Comments from previous guests:
‘ a wonderful week of yoga and relaxing at an idyllic retreat. My every need was catered for and it was a joy from start to end, thank you!’ – Graeme, Manchester

‚ÄúNice to go somewhere isolated but not too far from towns. So quiet and no light pollution. Never see so many stars at home‚ÄĚ.
‚ÄúBest vegan catering ever‚ÄĚ. – Gordon, Manchester

‚ÄúI loved the area, as soon as I got out of the car I felt relaxed. After doing the bike ride I noticed there was miles of area to do hikes or rides‚ÄĚ. – Paul, Manchester

‚ÄúThe food, yoga, location and even the circuit training far exceeded my expectations. Plus everyone there was super friendly too, which made it a really lovely experience‚ÄĚ.
‚ÄúThis was the first retreat I‚Äôve attended and actually felt more like holidaying with friends rather than a health retreat with a bunch of strangers!‚ÄĚ – Melanie, Manchester
