Meditation – Seeking Inner Peace

Amidst the ever flowing thoughts, through the maddening hustle and bustle of life, we so desperately search for quietude… reaching out to a place of stillness and silence.

In this search for peace and stillness, let’s take a pause through Meditation.  Quietening the chatter of our mind and detaching from the stress, fatigue and worries. Feeling refreshed and rejuvenated as we come back into balance in our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states.

We begin with a guided grounding meditation that flows into sound healing. Using crystal or Himalayan singing bowls or drum, the bowls will be struck in rhythms, giving a therapeutic experience, to heal, relax and bring you into alignment.

This helps to clear blockages inherent in your body and leads to healing the emotional, mental, physical states of your body and will gradually centre your body’s energies. Emerge from the session feeling balanced and peaceful.

Suitable for beginners and no prior experience is necessary. A non-religious session.

Date : Conducted by appointment

Walking Meditation

Being in the present moment and becoming aware of our breathing and our walking, to enjoy each step.  Shake off our worries and anxieties, not thinking of the future or past and just enjoying the present moment.  Meditation can improve focus, clear the mind of distractions and reduce stress.

We can transform our walking path into a field of meditation where our feet will take every step in full awareness.  Our breathing will be in harmony with our steps, and our mind will naturally be at ease.  Every step we take will reinforce our peace and joy and cause a stream of calm energy to flow through us.

The walking meditation is suitable for those who face difficulties in sitting for a meditation or those who prefer movement instead of being seated.   It is also useful for those who wish to know other methods on meditation.  The meditation is followed by a short discussion for those who wish to share their experience or have any questions.  Suitable for beginners, both adults and children.  No prior experience is necessary.

Walking Meditation @ The Healing Garden of Botanical Gardens for Children / Tweens / Teens (aged from 7 to 15 years)

Children walk all the time, but usually it’s more like running – hurried, excited and being distracted.  Walking meditation is walking just to enjoy walking.  Walking without arriving where each step is in peace and joy.

In the tranquil settings of the Healing Garden, guiding the children to appreciate nature and simply being mindful of the walk and breathing.  The purpose is to be in the present moment and, become aware of our breathing and our walking, to enjoy each step.

Becoming aware of the Nature energies and allowing ourselves to be still and focussed.  Bring along your water and walking shoes.  Will start with a sitting meditation to become centered and we will walk some parts without shoes, depending on the weather condition.

Date : Conducted by appointment for a minimum of two persons.
Duration : 1 hour
Exchange : $30
