Dear Integral Meditators,

September and October seem to have brought the energy of change with them for me, how about you? There have been lots of things to keep me busy and engaged, but I’ve particularly appreciated my daily mindfulness time as a way of not just coping with the change but thriving with and enjoying it!

There is a ‘Meditations for Quietening the Mind’ workshop on the 22nd, with the ongoing Wednesday evening classes in the mid-week. You’ll also see at the bottom of the list there is a collaborative event on the 19th November at One Heart, a community that I will be working with in a joint project over the coming months!

In the spirit of the mindful journey,
Toby

Sample feedback from meditation coaching client:

“I was a relative newcomer to meditation and had some previous lessons before I first came to see Toby. However, after one lesson with Toby I learned more than I did in all my previous sessions and realised how important it was to have an experienced teacher. He was able to explain the basic methods to me in a way that made sense and my practices very quickly improved. Almost a year later I still benefit from each of our sessions and always come away learning something and feeling good. Thanks Toby”

Toby’s new book ‘Engaged Mindfulness’ is out!

Dear Integral Meditators,

I’m really happy to announce that my new book ‘Engaged Mindfulness – What mindfulness is and how we can apply it to our daily lives’ is out!

I’ve been writing blog articles on meditation and mindfulness or a long time now, this first book of mine looks specifically at some of the most practical ways to understand and work with mindfulness in your daily life that I have discovered through my own experience over the last twenty years or so. It is only available in hard copy.

Engaged Mindfulness is on special launch offer (20% off) until the end of the month, full details are below, do feel free to share the news of the launch with any friends you think may be interested!

In the spirit of the mindful journey,

Toby


About ‘Engaged Mindfulness’: 

‘This is a book on applied mindfulness. It aims to present clear, practical ideas and exercises on how to integrate mindfulness practice into your daily life. The different sections of the book were originally written as articles, reflections on the authors own practice of mindfulness, and the ways that he has found most useful to integrate mindfulness into his life as different challenges have presented themselves.
Each section details mindfulness exercises and practices which you can either try out in a systematic way, one chapter after the other, or in a more organic manner, picking out the practices that you feel most drawn to.
Those who have no experience of mindfulness previously, might like to go to section entitled ‘Some Simple Focusing & Relaxing Practices’, which detail exercises for building basic mindful concentration.
The book is the first of a series, and deliberately kept short. The text is meant to be read slowly rather than in a rush. Taking it a page or two at a time, combining it with a little time for personal reflection is a good way to go.’

An alternative to meditating by yourself or with apps

Dear Integral Meditators,

We live in a world where the interface between mindfulness and technology is getting more and more interesting. The meditation technology that I have been most interested in over the last few years is binural beats and biofield technology. The products I use the most in this regard are from I-awake technologies, you can read my own personal introduction and reflection on them here on the Integral Meditation Asia website.

They have a new product out – “Reasonance: Sound Medicine to Harmonize Your Physical and Energetic Bodies”. I’ve placed the details below, If you click on the link there is also a free sample track that you can have a listen to. I’ve been listening to it for the last few days both as meditation background and for help to focus whilst working, and have been enjoying it very much! It is on a 20% discount launch offer until 28th June,

Wishing you well,

Toby


Introducing Reasonance: Sound Medicine to Harmonize Your Physical and Energetic Bodies

Reasonance is the latest evolutionary, and revolutionary audio offering from iAwake Technologies. It was created by iAwake’s CTO Javi Otero, based on decades of work by Lynnclaire Dennis and her team at Mereon Solutions International. The Mereon Matrix is a primary, fractal geometric pattern found in nature that reproduces indefinitely, or infinitely, and creates larger patterns of great beauty and complexity. When these patterns are mathematically transformed into audio waves, they produce sounds of great power and resonance that can be used as personal transformation tools.

There are three tracks included in this offering: one 11-minute track is designed to be used with headphones, another 11-minute track to be played over audio speakers for an even more powerful somatic resonance experience or to enhance group meditations, yoga classes, and healing sessions, and the third highly immersive 33-minute track is suitable for both headphones and speakers.

Here are some of the testimonials from iAwake’s alpha and beta testers.

“This felt like a turbo boost for my brain. I quickly went into a profoundly altered state, where I experienced a sense of balanced centeredness and a greater connection with people and nature.” –MH

“Reasonance induces a potent witness consciousness state, in a gradation I have never encountered during my meditation or otherwise. A heightening of focus and reduction of distraction impulse as well as an amazing boost in creative welling up of imagery for artistic work. It’s unlike any other entrainment out there; it shifts the state of consciousness in a really unique way. ‘Go deeper than you ever thought possible into the ever present Witness!'” –SM

“Sometimes I felt like I wanted to play it again to keep releasing stuff. It helped put me in flow states and helped me take my nap in under 11 minutes and feel refreshed and ready for flow productivity. This is the most powerful product you have and only lasts for 11 minutes. Great!”–RIE

“One of the most profound entrainment tracks I’ve ever used. The sonic space is very enveloping and my experience was blissfully magical–almost beyond timelessness. I’ve never had such a silent trance experience. I can only describe it as ancient vastness and a sense of the veil having been lifted. Very intriguing effect… This may very well be my favorite track from iAwake thus far.” –SC

“My thoughts became very still, effortlessly. There was a drawing down into a center place almost immediately (within seconds) of listening to the track (particularly via headphones). It felt like a whole body listening as opposed to a head-based listening.”–KM

“It brings me inside myself, into my heart. The energy is intense, and my body responds to it as an energy healer. I wake up truly rested, calm, focused, and feel really happy and joyful. I’m planning to experiment using the frequencies in my energy field therapy work.”–LK

“A beautiful and peaceful experience that physically felt very healing. I think this is revolutionary and can’t wait to see the effect in the weeks and months ahead.”–Lorrie

Client Testimonials:

1. “For myself, the coaching sessions got right to the heart of issues I was having. Toby facilitated in a particularly tactful, caring and intuitive way. We really managed to find clear, practical ways to tackle difficulties head on, and immediately.
I have undergone several coaching, and personal development training sessions and courses. None were as valuable or tailored as the ones with Toby. I can also revisit my notes if ever I wish to refresh my mind. Many thanks Toby.”

“The lovely, simple techniques you shared have enabled me to be honest with, and about, myself in such a way that is really liberating. I’ve been surprised at how quickly I’ve experienced the benefits….  I love the honesty and practicality of this process and the fact that it’s leading me towards a better understanding and acceptance of myself and ultimately (I hope) to tapping into my full creative potential – in whatever form that may take.”

“I got more than I was expecting!  I thought I was coming for some generic meditation training, to help me focus and meditate more effectively.  What I’ve had is deep emotional coaching, a much better understanding of what meditation is about and how it can be brought into day to day life to help deal with whatever emotions come up.  In addition I’ve now had 3 very different meditations to practice, all tailored to my personal needs.”

Finding Liberation Through the Witness Self – Connecting to Peace, Abundance and Creative Freedom Though Mindfulness Practice

mesquite seed podTime & Date: Saturday May 28th, 2.30-5.30pm

Location: Basic Essence, 501 Bukit Timah Road, #04-04 Cluny Court, Singapore 259760 (Click HERE for map)

In a sentence: A workshop that teaches you the practice of mindful witnessing, suitable for beginners, or for established practitioners who wish to deepen their experience of this technique.

Overview

Would you like to learn a form of mindfulness that:

  • Builds a strength of mind that enables you to cope and even thrive under the stress, pressure and distractions of your daily life
  • Is naturally relaxing, calming and focusing
  • Gives you a more objective perspective on your experiences, both the good and the bad
  • Grows in depth and effectiveness as you grow and develop
  • Provides increasing access to states of mind that are naturally joyful, positive and uplifting
  • Helps build the inner wisdom that you need to learn directly from your own life experiences
  • Enables greater flexibility, playfulness and creativity within you
  • Gives you a deeper experience of who you are, and answer to the question ‘Who am I?’
  • Gradually liberates you from the attachment, clinging and consequent fear and anxiety that comes from being over-identified with the contents of your mind, your beliefs, your judgements and expectations as well as your body and senses.

All of the above benefits are side effects of the practice of learning the practice of mindful witnessing that this workshop teaches, so if your answer was yes to any of the above points, then this is a workshop for you!

What you will learn

The content of the workshop focuses upon four mindful witnessing practices:

  • Witnessing the breathing, the body and the senses
  • The witnessing of thoughts, emotions, beliefs and expectations
  • The witnessing of awareness and consciousness itself
  • Using witnessing as a method for heightening creativity and finding positive ideas and solutions

All of these techniques are ones that can be done as sitting meditation practices, but they can also be brought into everyday life as ways of going and being in the world, both at work and at home.

In addition to the workshop you will receive

  • MP3 recordings of the mindful witnessing exercises that are done during the workshop
  • Full workshop notes with all of the mindful-witnessing exercises included as well as other relevant articles and materials.

All in all, you will have a very clear idea of how you can continue your mindful witnessing practice in your daily life after leaving the workshop
