Online Community Resting Meditation Circles

I’m offering two more meditation sessions this week. Tuning into the body, breath and encouraging self-gentleness and REST. Not just to momentarily escape or distract ourselves. Rather, trusting that when we turn the dial down on the worry and non-stop thinking, then we can hear the voices of love, fearlessness and creativity a little more clearly as we navigate this period of transformational change.


The circles use Zoom, an online meeting software that is free and simple to download. You will need a quiet space to be and a device that has a mic/speaker and a camera.


Both circles will include guidance for a 20-25 minute lying down meditation (you can follow this or do your own meditation practice and simply enjoy the connection with others online). I have found in my own practice that there is something wonderfully powerful about meditating in community with others whilst in my own home.


For the circle involving singing, everyone will mute their mic due to the online time-lag and I’ll teach some super-simple voice exercises and songs, so don’t let shyness stop you. Sometimes a bit of poetry, music or journalling might creep in too 😃


I have been practising deep rest meditation for the past 6 years and have been teaching online meditation circles since last year, with my wonderful teacher (Jaya Ashmore)’s blessing. It’s a non-religious practice encouraging gentle connection with the body, breath and the earth. And I’ve been singing with communities in person since 2009 – not that much online though, so it’s been fun to experiment with that!


All are welcome. Free of charge (or donations if you can afford it).
