STILLE SESSION – MINDFULNESS SESSION
How It Works
At citySTILLE, our mindfulness & meditation sessions last 30-45 minutes. They take place in Raum der Stille, a nature-like setting easing your mind and relaxing the body.
Each session is a deliberate ‘disconnect’ from mobile devices, newspapers, books or other sources of information.
Sessions include a short introduction on breathing techniques, and the body’s correct positions during the meditation exercise. (EN/DE)
FOR GROUPS of min. four and max. eight persons at lunch-time, after-work or when in need of a mindful day-break.
Firstly, you are invited to settle into the comfortable living room and to mindfully enjoy the self-preparation and drinking of a hand made tea.
This starts your guided journey for the purpose of “disconnecting” with simple things from the daily routine, like a tea drinking, while relaxing in our cozy living-room.
You will travel with your mind firstly on the green fields where the herbs were harvested from, and delight your sense of smell with the help of the essential oils (ex. Lavender tea, lavender oil and the imagination of the lavender fields ). You will enjoy the warmth of the elegant tea cup and hear the birds trill…there is something for all your senses, so that the mind moves away from the city, office or the last email. A very special tea ceremony.
Next, at your choice, you will deepen your mind relaxation with a guided meditation experience – sitting up in Raum der Stille or comfortably laying down in the Garden Gallery.
RAUM DER STILLE
12 places are available sitting up in the Birkenwald-Raum der Stille
A soft mindful guidance on calming down your breathing, a body-scan exercise with a forest theme which will bring you to a state of absolute calm and deep recharge. The special setting of the room transports you to a world like a peaceful forest where you return from empowered, calm and focused. This is a Trainer Guided Exercise.
4 places are available with individual head-phones providing a soft easy to follow English or German voice, carefully selected for you.
Finally, if your time permits, enjoy another drink, a coloring book, ask a question and return to your day with a calm and peaceful state of mind.
For a mindful rest of the day.
“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. “
