Stilling Your Mind with a new app - Still Mind TM
Stilling your mind with Grainne Toher.
I discovered the benefits of meditation during a particularly, stressful family time in or around 2003. My brain was humming much of the time during this period and it delighted in a few moments of complete switch off. The switch off was a simple body-scan burned onto a cd. I wore it out.
Searching about, I discovered there were many practices and many techniques to choose from, I just had to find one that suited me and my lifestyle.
My father became terminally ill and I became very angry at the thought of losing my best pal. It was during this time that I discovered a chanting practice, the vibrations from which helped release some of the frustration and powerlessness I felt as I watched him slip away.
During my yoga teacher trainings, I was introduced to many meditation practices and continued to explore this area off my mat, online and in new venues.
For me, I found that much of the techniques and learnings were constantly being unlearned to internalise into something I could authentically practice at home and transmit in my classes.
Modern life is becoming increasingly frantic and anxiety and depression are on the rise. As a society, we have become permanently ‘switched on’. More than ever, we need time out just for a few moments of a daily time out.
We also need a space or a means to practice meditation, without fear of getting it wrong, not meditating right or engaging in a battle with our own minds
Still Mind TM is a collection of my meditation experiences and observations to encourage people towards an acceptance of the busy mind. It aims to help them find a connection with their breath and move towards peace of mind.
Still Mind TM is available now on Google Play with Guest, Member and Gold Options.
From my heart to yours,
