MEDITATION FOR LIFE
TO MEDITATION FOR LIFE
Hello! I'm Marian.
I am happy to welcome you to the universe of meditation and mindful living. Are you curious to explore an ancient, yet simple and powerful way to improve your physical and mental health? Your general wellbeing?
Longing for a life with more energy, more balance – and less stress?
Yes, meditation benefits are backed by science. It's proven that meditation can:
improve your concentration
improve your sleep
lower your blood pressure
Yes, you can fit meditation into your busy life.
I will teach you how to meditate and how to fit a practice into your daily life. And no, you don’t have to sit like a Buddha for hours! You can get away with 10-20 minutes a day to enjoy the benefits when you stick with your practice.
Maybe you have already wondered what meditation is like? I certainly did for a long time. I have done yoga for more than 20 years, yet I was not into meditation for many years. I thought it seemed difficult, boring, a bit weird and far from straightforward, and I was probably also a little afraid of it! You may know what I am talking about.
I arrived in Australia from Denmark at the beginning of 2016. It was a time of big life changes settling in a new country. Searching for ways to feel better, thankfully one day I signed up for an online meditation course, which later led me to study at the BioMedical Institute of Yoga and Meditation (BIYOME) to become a meditation teacher within mind-body medicine.
And I am so happy that I did as I alway believed that a daily meditation practice would be good for both the mind and body.
EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO MEDITATE
These mind-body teachings marry the ancient yoga wisdom of the East with the biomedical sciences of the Western world, and I would love to share everything I have learned with you. If I can meditate, so can you!
There are many forms of meditation. I teach Theravada Buddhist Meditation with a focus on belly breathing (there is also nostril breathing). This is called ânâpânasati in Sanskrit, meaning a meditation practice with one's attention on the sensation of breathing.
Perhaps you already know the four classic forms of Buddhist meditation: seated, lying, standing and walking meditation.
Apart from these, I may also introduce you to mantra meditation, moving meditation, shaking meditation, gratitude meditation, loving-kindness meditation, smiling meditation, heart-centered meditation or Yoga Nidra (relaxation meditation). Sometimes, I use music for part of our meditation session.
A daily meditation practice can give you grounding, calm and clarity.
I have known Marian as a student and loyal friend of BIYOME since its inception. Marian is an exemplary woman, who I greatly admire for the following qualities; her kindness, attention to detail, intelligence and true compassion. She has a deep understanding of life, pain and the causes of suffering. Marian's true embodiment of mindfulness and compassion in her own life will assist so many others to 'fall into grace'. I highly commend her teachings to you.
