peace. relaxation. self discovery. healing. CREATIVITY.

 
Thank you for introducing me to meditation. I have only practiced it once on a budhist yoga weekend in Wales several years ago, in a room of about 200 practising budhists‎ whereby we were only guided to clear our minds and make them empty! I couldn’t do this as so many things were buzzing around in my head so presumed meditation wasn’t for me! But I really enjoyed the experience this time. I’m not particularly good at dealing with my emotions at times, and I know I keep things bottled up. The night we meditated under the gazebo, I felt overwhelmed with emotion, like the past 9 months was bubbling up inside me. You asked us to look at where we might be in the future, and for the very first time in a long time, I really felt positive about it and I could observe myself as being free and happy again. So thank you for that :-).

Meditation for Peace, Tranquility & More

Modern research teaches us that meditation is one of the best things we can do for our mental and physical health. It boosts our immune systems, raises our energy levels, alleviates or eliminates anxiety and depression, alleviate stress related disorders, raises our sense of self esteem, helps us make decisions, brings peace and tranquility, clears our minds, and boosts creativity.

It also does More, and a lot of it.

I was hoping to find some peace and tranquility, and I am blessed to have found that and more.

More = a new world

The more of mediation is that it's not only physically and emotionally therapeutic, but will also have the effect of radically transforming your worldview and allowing you a glimpse into a universe of more promise and possibility than you had imagined when you simply set out to find some peace in your life, answer a question or two, or heal yourself of certain sufferings.

There is little I can write that would capture even an iota of my unforgettable experience at Olive Retreat. This can be attributed to the many moments that made it the experience it was, but equally to the ongoing change I genuinely feel as a result of my time there.
