Here it is! For all of you who were unable to attend our masterclass with meditation guru Jacqui Lewis, scroll below to view the recording. If you’ve always wanted to learn more about what meditation really is, here is your opportunity. If you already practice, this will be an inspiring conversation to keep you energised.
We are thrilled to bring you this masterclass. World-renowned meditation teacher Jacqui Lewis has spent almost two decades studying Eastern knowledge and techniques, and years teaching meditation to individuals, teams and organisations around the globe. There is so much opportunity to become better at how we live life. If you’re feeling a bit like, ‘what is going on with the world?’ then this grounding and practical masterclass might help you to take care of you. We focus on:
- Understanding what meditation is, and how there is a meditation technique that suits everyone. We explored the big three.
- Learning some strategies we can try immediately that create clarity, creativity, and consciousness. Our team has embraced the ‘power down hour’ and ‘buffers’ approach.
- The role of sleep and why every human needs eight hours. Eek!
- Why ‘mashing’ is bad for our energy and brains.
- How you can ‘rinse’ your body and mind. Who knew this is a thing?
After the masterclass, Jacqui wanted to share more! She wrote this letter to us, for you.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to this Masterclass with the amazing Lisa. I would love to connect with you further if you wish to know more about Integrated Meditation, any of our Workplace Programs, or online courses and workshops. Some links and summaries are for you here:
Power Down Hour: the practice of taking an hour on waking or the hour before bed (the most powerful way to enhance quality sleep) for a complete tech-free hour. Do NOT do Power Down hour if you want to feel stretched, overwhelmed and pushed during your days. This is only for people who want more clarity, cognitive pathway rebuilding, resilience and calm in their days…see what I did there? Hehe, you choose!
Stop Mashing: at first, take a singular task and do it well, with absolute presence. Extend out from there. Doing multiple things at once is fractured and unproductive.
Buffers: instead of rushing from task to task, build little micro buffers into your days so you’re not completely fried by the end of each day. It does takes discipline and planning, but the outcome is crystal-clear clarity and greater productivity. Also, you’re not a hot mess by 6pm.
Integrated Meditation - this is the mantra-based practice I mentioned that comes from the same lineage as Transcendental Meditation, which you might have heard of. I would love to share this technique with you because frankly it’s going to change your life! You can learn with me in a public group course, private one-on-one course, or private group environment. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m happy to chat or email with you to work out what would be best for you. You can also read more here.
Books - I have published three books you can see more about here. I mentioned This Is Your Mind On Plants, a fascinating read here, and I also mentioned Matthew Walkers’ Why We Sleep here. I have an extensive book recommendation list here.
If you are keen to do some one-on-one work, have me speak to your team or host a workshop, don’t hesitate to reach out.
Thanks for your time, Jacqui.
