What even is meditation?
Meditation is a practice where we use a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness and thereby create insight and contentment. By practicing meditation, we can alleviate suffering from mental health challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression, addiction and sleep problems. The best way to think of meditation is as a training regime for our brain. Our brain, just like the muscles in our body, can be conditioned to be better suited to tackle the ins and outs of life. Just as going to the gym or exercising stimulates muscle growth and increases our aerobic capacity, meditation increases the functioning our of brain and makes us more resilient to the knockdowns of life.
Who's this fletch character then?
Hi I'm Fletch, a meditation coach with seven years experience in daily meditation that I bring to my teaching. My style is light and engaging, while still getting to the point of it all. My meditation is grounded in mindfulness and Buddhist techniques, though I like to explore other spiritual, non-secular and scientific ideas as well.
I can work with individuals and all types and sizes of groups and bring my experience from working with schools and workplaces as a conservation educator and facilitator.
Is it any good?
I began Fletcher’s 8-week workshop series with a limited understanding of mindfulness and I held no expectations about what I would gain from it. By the end, and through Fletcher’s calm, knowledgeable, and gentle teachings, I gained a much deeper understanding about the practice and about myself.
Fletcher’s commitment and respect for the practice encouraged me to adopt it into my daily routine, which is guiding me to a reintegration of mind and body. It is a true act of self-love to allow myself to drop into a meditation whenever I need to.
I highly recommend Fletcher’s workshop series to anyone who is looking to be gently guided towards living in the present moment and to reconnect to themselves.
