Why Meditate?

These are some of the reasons why you may like to begin a regular meditation practice:

  • Brings clarity of mind
  • Promotes good health and happiness
  • Can reduce stress and stress related ailments and disease such as high blood pressure, heart disease and cancers.
  • Improves concentration
  • Gives perspective in difficult times
  • Provides a path to intuitive knowledge or a universal intelligence
  • Trains us to be the witness

Practice Tips

  • To meditate you must first have the desire to meditate.
  • Prepare a “sacred” space and make time for your practice.
  • Get the right seated position, be warm and comfortable.
  • You must make sure that you won’t be disturbed. But if it happens, try not to get frustrated … smile and be grateful for having got as far as you did. There is always later in the day or tomorrow.
  • Most importantly, have no expectations. Every day is different.

Meditation to ‘Mind Your Mind’

These were a series of meditation sessions that I ran in 2018/2019 giving you practical tips to develop your own regular meditation practice. They started with some gentle Yoga stretches to prepare your body for sitting quietly which is the first step in any meditation practice. There are well defined steps to develop the discipline to bring you to that quiet space and we explored them in these sessions.

Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and to improve the immunity of the body and the mind. Practiced regularly (15-20 minutes per day) it can bring greater clarity to your thinking and help you to gain perspective.

We will be adding, posts to our blog over time which might be helpful to you on your meditation journey.

Many bodies sweated in this space, many laughs were had, beautiful songs sang, many shrieks during cold water showers. many star-gazing evenings.
We have time now for some projects. Watch this space.
Hope to see some of you this summer. Hope you are all keeping safe 🌿🐞🦋🐛🐝

Our new website is now live. We've tried to keep the same simplicity and natural feel of the old site. There were lots of pages that were probably never explored but we've tried to structure it a bit better now. Retreats are bookable now under the events. We're still tweaking it but what do you think so far?

This time 2 years ago I recorded a meditation for the 'Breathe' cd with #lukabloom. Luka recorded a beautiful piece, called #mindyourownmind It was a surreal experience and one I cherish. It came about through workshops I ran that year, called Mind your Mind which focused on establishing a steady regular meditation practice. .

On a stormy day in February on a day where we've been gutted when our local green @roisingarvey came sooo close to being our voice for West Clare... but where 12 other greens have a place around the table to lead the way in tackling our #climate and #biodiversity #crisis..... it's not a bad day after all @misserikadoyle Here is a glimpse of a lazy, sunny Purecamping day... just hanging out 💚💚💚🐞🐝🐬

Escape from the busyness... with some 'slow' Yoga... restorative... deep tension releasing poses ... the mind follows.... tensions released... and clarity replaces the 'fog'. We will warm up with slow salutations and drop down onto thick soft Yoga mats, into classical restorative Yoga poses. We will practice each pose keeping in mind the Koshas, the layers of our beings.... the physical aspect, pranic or energy aspect, lower mind, higher mind and bliss body..... #yoga #classes #meditation #loveloophead @westofclare @thewildatlanticway @loopheadtourism #clare #ireland ...

Summer moved into Autumn without many of us noticing here, except that it's a little quieter. The sea is at its warmest and richest in nutrients, perfect for sea dips and seaweed baths. Children are settled back into school, the summer madness over and now it's time to look after yourself. The Loop Head Wellness weekend is a perfect combination of events to reduce stress, to restore energy and to give you an overall feeling of wellbeing. There are still places available. You can book directly here: https://purecamping.ie/event/loop-head-autumn-wellness-weekend/ #wellness #yoga #meditation
