On Tuesday evening some Energised clients and Head Coach Kim experienced a Taster Session in Meditation from the wonderful Sam May. I personally feel that the quite time for reflection and for the body to be still is an important aspect of overall wellbeing, and gives a chance forone to rebalance, repair, find clarity and restore ‘good’ energy.
Mindfulness, awareness, clarity and acceptance were the areas touched on, combined with openess, honesty with oneself, breathing and peacefulness… All of this links closely to our NLP Performance and Lifestyle Coaching – to find out more or to post your thoughts just comment below.
We have found this site and know it is a good one: http://www.relax7.com/welcome.htm and Mike is brilliant if you feel like getting in touch with him, or trying his produces.
The feedback from the session was excellent and people have been asking about Sam’s Taster 6 Week course so the information below has everything you need to know to sign up today.
