Come and join us in our Facebook Group for a 7 Day Meditation Challenge with Rachel Bonkink. Rachel will be with us every day from Monday 5th of October to teach and guide us the ways of meditation.

In this 7 Day Meditation Challenge we will investigate the mind. To get a sense of why we do the things that we do. Meditation is the ultimate tool to increase our mental health and create more awareness in our daily life. Scientific evidence proves that meditation can be helpful to fight chronic illnesses and increase our mental stability. Meditation is a way to establish or re-establish your body-mind connection and to start feeling better, day by day.

Every day we will follow the same pattern to get you into a routine, to establish patterns and to gently guide you through. After a short introduction, we will do several breathing exercises and we meditate together.

In Rachel’s teachings, there is a strong influence from Tibetan Buddhism and the Yoga philosophy.
This means that Rachel will introduce shamatha (concentration) and vipasyana (insight) techniques, as well as concentrative techniques from the Yoga traditions over the course of 30 days.
We will take the time to zoom into different techniques.
Different types of meditation and breathing techniques will have different benefits and you will notice the difference.

This 7 Day Meditation Challenge is for both seasoned practitioners and for beginners. Even for people who have never meditated before! You will learn new breathing techniques and experience how this can profoundly lower your stress levels.

Meditating together is a powerful and transformative experience.
And, Rachel can assure you that you will feel better after these 7 days.
‘Everything you need is already inside of you’, you just need to show up.
