Holistic Meditation Sessions


Learn the Healing Secrets of Holistic Meditation

Come and join our intimate holistic meditation sessions here at The Mindful Place in Summer Hill NSW, and meet like-minded individuals who, like you, are aiming to achieve absolute wellness.

Our integrated approach employs meditation as a tool to guide you in healing and maintaining your health and wellbeing. We conduct our sessions in a relaxed, interactive and informal setting to encourage openness, sharing and mutual support.

We teach a variety of techniques; some are targeted towards your higher self, while others are designed to manage stress and promote relaxation. Moreover, we incorporate self-care techniques from kinesiology and chair yoga to help you establish a deeper connection with your energy. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are your sessions limited to four people?

Limiting each session to four people will enable you to create a stronger connection with your mind, body and spirit. In addition, a smaller group session allows you to interact with other participants and foster sociability, which helps further spiritual growth and eliminate negative emotions.

What makes your meditation sessions unique? 

Our holistic meditation sessions are led by a certified practitioner who’s equipped with the skills and tools to guide you in repairing your health and maintaining an excellent life. 

Each student gets to enjoy a one-on-one interaction with the teacher, and learn various meditation, relaxation and self-healing techniques based on both western and eastern philosophies.

Is meditation evidence based?

According to Dr. Herbert Benson, MD, an American cardiologist and the founder of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, meditation fights stress. His findings, along with that of other medical researchers, show that meditation induces relaxation and returns the body to homeostasis. 

The Australian Medical Association and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners have also recognised the unique ability of meditation to treat and prevent disease.
