I appreciate Maja’s generosity with her time and sharing of what she knows. It is evident she puts a lot of work into the course and is committed to supporting others to bring meditation into their world.Every week I have been struck by the synchronicity of what is happening in my life and aspects of Maja’s talk, I am learning continuously! I also value the follow up emails capturing the essence of what was talked about.
Maja taught me many tools to meditate in a lovely calm way. She is very flexible in her approach and very attentive. Therefore I felt very supported and it was easy to pay attention and relax into it..
For me, Maja's meditation sessions are an oasis of calm at the end of a busy weekend. As I leave my shoes at the door and step into the welcoming yoga room I become lighter. Whether I stay for thirty minutes or ninety - the feeling of inner calm and well-being is measurable. There is a very special energy in meditating with like-minded souls, which feels so nurturing!
My rating is 10 for the Beginners Meditation Course as Maja is so generous in sharing her knowledge and I gained so much from the sessions. I liked many things about the course! I appreciated the balance between practicing meditation (and the many ways to do this) and information about meditation (linking to the origins and benefits, especially spiritual and universal - teaching us how meditation is much more than a stress-management tool. Maja's warm and positive attitude created a nurturing and safe space to explore meditation as a group. Providing us with so many valuable resources. Even though I am still at an early stage in establishing a regular meditation practice, the course has already enriched my personal and professional (healthcare) life.I thought I would find it hard moving from in-person to online but actually, I feel both formats work well (in person perhaps has an edge, allowing more of a connection with the group).
Maja is a wonderful teacher and I find myself so relaxed during a class and never want it to end.I feel energised and my day flows after attending a class with Maja.
I really liked the freedom the Beginners Course offered to be able to learn about meditation practices and techniquesand adapt them to my personal preferences.
Each week Maja lovingly prepares a sacred space for the group to practise quietude and meditation -I always feel warmly welcomed and enjoy to share in the beautiful stillness that descends during these sessions.I always leave feeling somewhat more empowered by the experience of group mediation.
I was concerned that I wasn't meditating correctly because I often had a hard time quieting my mind.After taking the beginner's meditation course, I learned that there isn't any one correct way to meditate and I feel reassured thatI am taking care of myself by committing myself to regular meditation.
Meditation offers a calming refuge, without the pressure of doctrine or agenda - simply a place to be ...and find peace.
Maja's course helped me to understand the benefits of meditation and that I am normal in my struggle to calm my busy mind.I particularly liked the exercises where we practised different ways of meditating.
