“The goal of meditation is not to get rid of thoughts or emotions. The goal is to become more AWARE of your thoughts and emotions and learn how to move through them without getting stuck.”
What is Meditation?
Meditation is a practice where a person uses a technique such as focusing on an object, breath, expression or thought (mantra)to achieve a state of calmness, clarity, and peace. Meditation is when the mind is calm, allowing us to access a state of deep peace. Meditation is not about controlling our thoughts; it’s about not allowing our thoughts to control us.
Meditation may be used to improve sleep, reduce anxiety, stress, depression, or simply personal growth. Meditation can help increase awareness, peace, a sense of calm and overall well being.
For me, meditation is a time for Space. Clarity. Breath. Stillness. Self. Silence. Calm. Awareness. Peace. Being.
Let’s face it, we live in busy times, we spend our days racing to the next task, project, relationship, job or even party. We’ve turned from human beings into human “do-ers.” What would it be like if we could PAUSE… Breathe… and dance at the moment… It is in that very moment we give ourselves the precious gift of time, time out from doing…time to simply be…. time out to access our Exceptional Selves!!
It is a sanctuary of tranquillity, a place free of expectation, stress or judgement. During our meditation sessions, you will gently be guided through breathing techniques, guided meditations, and focused meditations. Encouraging you to access the tools that will help you learn the art of meditation. Sessions are open to everyone, whether you are practised in the art of meditation or simply curious, I invite you to share this space with me.”

“I engaged with Pamela after she was recommended to me. I was intrigued with coaching having had someone close to me complete the course which I have since gone on to complete.
It was only when I engaged with Pamela, I was able to understanding see the huge positive impact it has on both my personal and business life. Pamela is very professional and held me to account with commitments I made throughout our journey together.
“Pamela delivered Mindfulness and Well-being workshops to our students as part of their orientation programmes the workshop on the Professional Master Education Programmes. The workshops were engaging and interactive and provided a positive experience for our students as they embark on an intensive 2-year study period.

The following quotes from our students show how much they enjoyed the sessions.
