3 guided meditations to help you live in the moment

Awaken your awareness, relax your mind and learn to live in the now with this series of mindful moments


Enjoying the world in all its raw beauty is a magical experience that often passes us by. Without tuning into the present and tapping into awareness, we can forget to enjoy the little things in life.  You may wonder how you can awaken your awareness when you are so busy or distracted and what exactly awareness is An accessible and universal way to access your inner power of awareness is through mediation. Studies have proven the wonders of meditation, with one presenting how regular meditation has the ability to increase grey-matter density in the hippocampus area of the brain. This area of the brain is important for memory, learning and most importantly, awareness and compassion  


Although meditation is advantageous, we know it can be a somewhat intimidating practice to begin. But don’t worry—we’re here to help you build your practice. If you’re new to meditating, it’s essential to start small. There’s no need to force yourself into a lengthy meditation session. You can experience the positive effects of meditation—such as stress reduction, better sleep, pain relief and a strengthened immune system—even after just a few short sessions. The crucial thing is not how many minutes you spend meditating but how frequently you practice meditation. It’s all about making it a daily habit.
