Heart Centre CD: balance your emotions... What is the Heart Centre?
The Heart centre is the balancing point in your energy system of the chakras which is an ancient structure used in many types of healing to aid balance, wellbeing and peace.
Whilst your lower chakras (root, sacral and solar plexus tend to relate more to the physical world like your body, your relationships etc and the upper chakras of the throat, brow and crown relate to your inner world of thoughts/emotions, the heart centre helps balance these 2 'aspects' of your energy.
Benefits of using the heart centre CD:
helps you to feel calmer and centred to face challenges
helps you feel compassion and love for yourself
helps you feel compassion and love for those who have upset you
helps with developing forgiveness to free your energy of pain, hurt and anger
"Heart centre CD is fantastic, I was a bit anxious when a started to listen to it, lots of stuff running through my head, as I started to follow the meditation I began to relax and calm right down. By the end I felt completely grounded" D Taylor
As we move into 2012 and the energy of life and what we focus on starts to change, it is important to encourage your heart centre to be balanced - meditation is an excellent way of doing this.
Lorraine has been teaching a heart centre meditation group for a few years now and this inspired her to produce this particular CD. There are 2 tracks - 1 for deeper balancing (weekly basis) and a short, easy to use track for daily use to keep the heart centre strong and supported.

Teach Children Meditation: new website to be launched this week!
Teaching Children Meditation is something we are very passionate about and by the number of people who support uson facebook, have bought the book and cds and attend our courses... we are not alone!
So we have decided to launch a new website dedicated to this subject. It will include useful articles on research, hints, tips and other suggestions for teaching children meditation - all in one easy place for you to find (and signpost to others who you think might benefit).
We have a few days till it is 'launched' and as with all our websites, it will grow 'organically' so please... if you have any tips, suggestions or feedback, please feel free to drop us an email with your views.
The countdown begins.... Teach Children Meditation Campaign
Calm Kids the book is out! helping you and your kids....
First of all can we say 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has bought our book so far. We really hope it helps you and your children find some inner peace together and help reduce stress for everyone.
We received some advanced copies of the book so were able to send out signed copies to happy customers a little bit earlier than the release date. We have had some lovely feedback so far...

New Meditation Practise Group... perfect to refresh or if you've been on our beginners
We have a number of people who attend our beginner's meditation course asking us how they can keep practising meditation.
Some of our students come on the beginner's meditation course a few times (as they enjoy the group practise). However there comes a time when they need something more than the beginner's level.
The benefits of meditating in a group (if you are new or a bit rusty) are:
having an experienced tutor to guide you in meditation
a regular timeslot that is dedicated to you releasing stress and calming the mind
the next day benefit of the meditation helps to support your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing throughout the week
the group energy is a supportive environment that makes it easer to meditate
Meditation Support Sessions
So we've set up some meditation support sessions. Each session is only 30 minutes long and will take place on a Wednesday evening at the Gilles Centre (same venue as the beginner's course) starting at 6pm. The cost is £7 per class (or if you book 3 sessions or more it is £5 a class).
If you wish to book a session or more...
