Someone once asked the Buddha skeptically, “What have you gained through meditation?” The Buddha replied, “Nothing at all.” “Then, Blessed One, what good is it?” “Let me tell you what I lost through meditation: sickness, anger, depression, insecurity, the burden of old age, the fear of death. That is the good of meditation, which leads to nirvana.”
For some reason, we all think that the fast pace of our mind, constant streams of thought, or lack of ability to focus and sit still are unique to us, and us alone.
This couldn't be further from the truth as the practice of meditation is not only ancient, but also universal to many cultures around the world. You truly are not alone in this.
Here at Raw Satya, clients on a healthy living program often begin focusing on the physicality of food and diet - however with regular weekly sessions, there is often the understanding that meditation will compliment these lifestyle changes.
When someone first experiences a guided 40-minute meditation session, they feel calm and excited with the prospect of creating a meditation practice for themselves.
And then, after continued regular practice, they come to realise that meditation is truly food for the soul.
Meditation sessions are invaluable for:
Bringing awareness to the present moment
Exploring the real self by letting go of life’s distractions.
A meditation practice in combination with using food as medicine is a lifestyle change which is empowering. It asks that you take responsibility for your own well being and self healing, and results in creating space for a happy life. If you have any apprehension, and that is normal when moving through change - Rosemarie guides you through the process. Always honouring your own individual journey, you will be equiped with the tools for self-monitoring your progress.

I look forward to meditating with you,
