Meditation Needs You

"Meditation is essential. In this modern day and age, it is no longer an option - it is a must."

What if everyone you knew - including yourself - set aside 5 minutes each day to be still?  To turn off their phones and get quiet?  To ground themselves and reflect on who they want to be - not what?

How different would our world be?

How to Release What No Longer Serves You

"Feel the feeling, but don't become the emotion. Witness it. Allow it. Release it."

...and we're back! 

Just like that, our Pause & Reset Challenge is officially over and classes are resuming again tomorrow. We hope you feel as relaxed and rejuvenated as we do!

Since we are entering a new month, a new season and a new chance to start with a clean slate, it felt fitting that our meditation theme this month is: Release. 

The Gift of Meditation

"The thing about meditation is...you become more and more you."

Hi friends,

It was about this time last year when the idea of Anchor came to me. I was driven by this deep desire to learn more about meditation after I noticed how a simple 10-minute at home practice made a huge difference in my sleep, my pain, my stress, my relationships, and my overall sense of well being.  

But, a little something was missing. I needed a community to share my practice with.

The Pause + Reset Challenge

"What if we recharged ourselves as often as we did our phones?"

There is power in quietness. In stillness. In pausing and reflecting. 

In our world today, it's easy for us to constantly be on the go. We are often running from work to the gym to cooking dinner without a breather. And, when we finally have the chance to slow down, we are so drained from our constant movement - we don't have the energy to reflect. 

So, here's a challenge for you to think about: What would happen if you took some time to recharge? 

Your best relationship is with yourself

"Love yourself first, because that's who you'll be spending the rest of your life with."

How often do you take yourself on a date? Pause to enjoy a few moments of quiet time? Give yourself permission to be alone?

Before I began meditating, the answers to these questions for myself were: almost never. I was too busy with the kids, with work, with my household--and all the things on my never-ending "to do" list.
