In order to achieve meditation, we must create a strong foundation on the physical level.
Meditation arises in the gap between each thought. Our goal is to extend this gap.
Benefits of the practise of meditation reach to the physical, mental, and emotional. Through its practise the quality of your life is improved.
Consciousness and the Brain – When we are awake the left hemisphere is active. Closing the eyes brings the right hemisphere into action. Deep meditation activates the whole brain.
The purpose of Meditation is to realize that we are not only the body. Meditation brings the body into a state of rest and relaxation, reduces stress and slows the aging process.
How does it work? – Meditation stimulates the brain to induce a process of healing and relaxation, which involves the release of hormones.
Mind over Matter – using skills of meditation upon the physical body allows us to change the way we act and feel. It gives us powerful tools for re-scripting painful thoughts and emotions into positive ones.

It was through endless hours of research and study that I was able to design my own Longevity Lifestyle Plan and then finally feel that I was able to heal myself completely.
I felt that Western Medicine just didn’t have all the answers I was looking for, there was a missing link and I was determined to find it, what I didn’t realise was that I was not alone in my journey, the more I looked for answers, the more I realised that so many others were also searching for improved health and quality of life. This inspired me to heal myself which then led onto healing others. Through balancing the Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine approach to Nutrition, a Holistic approach to your Diet and your Body then allows healing to take place. Allow me to help guide you on your Self-Discovery path through learning these basic Holistic methods.
