As meditation deepens, our attention begins to dive into the subconscious. The conscious mind becomes less busy, and the awareness is thus allowed to recede back to deeper levels of our being.
With that, things that you had repressed, or chosen to overlook in life, are there waiting for you.
These can include, among other things:
• difficult emotions
• hidden traumas
• “wild desires”
• negative thought patterns
• shame, guilt, regret
• aggressiveness, anger
• unconscious fears
• unresolved emotional processes
Vunkuwa Shadow-self Meditation is a personal growth process which brings into conscious recognition of your hidden powers, out of the shadow and into the light. We all have these hidden powers within Us, but we do not always allow Ourselves the freedom to use them. We have all experienced emotions of hurt, pain and suffering, which often we learn only to hide. We conceal these hurt parts of Ourselves to avoid becoming hurt again.
Through learning step-by-step to live in alignment with your shadow-self each passing day,
life seems to flow more naturally and taking action becomes less of a struggle. book your session
Meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state, It is the means for fathoming all the levels of ourselves and finally experiencing the centre of consciousness within; Draw yourself to yourself. Empty your mind of all things from sources outside you and look into your mind for a force that may be entirely yours.
In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. When you meditate, you are fully awake and alert, but your mind is not focused on the external world or on the events taking place around you. Meditation requires an inner state that is still and one pointed so that the mind becomes silent. When the mind is silent and no longer distracts you, meditation deepens. Focusing your attention is generally one of the most important elements of meditation.

The better your aerobic fitness, the more efficiently your heart, lungs and blood vessels transport oxygen throughout your body.
Balance is essential for all human movement and movement and is necessary for all activities of daily living. By definition, balance is the ability to maintain the body’s position over its base of support within stability limits, both statically and dynamically.

Stretching has been shown to effectively increase the range of motion in joints. Better range of motion enables you to keep a better balance. Better balance means you are less susceptible to falls and the resulting injuries (of particular importance as you age). Increased range of motion also helps to keep you up and moving.

We make snap judgments about people from the clothes they wear. On what basis? There is much more to our clothing choices than we might imagine. For many people, what they wear is merely a matter of habit, but when we dress in the morning it might pay us to be a little more careful in the choices we make. Doing something different with your clothes might be a way of changing the impression others have of your colour Talks!
