Access Your Inner Power and Peace

Gain a calm mind, relaxed body and refreshed spirit through daily meditation practice

Do these sound familiar?

I’ve been in that same place.

Before becoming a meditation teacher I struggled for years with trying to meditate because my mind raced like the Indy 500 speedway. I was a type A+++ and sitting still made my skin crawl.

Then I found a teacher who changed my mindset and in the process changed my life. I learned that all the really important things in life are an inside job. Like peace, compassion, kindness, courage, love and so many more qualities. Meditation helps you cultivate these qualities in yourself and in your life. The benefits of meditation show up in your life in numerous ways.

I have always loved life… but not until I started to consistently meditate did I fall deeply in love with the full spectrum of life.

What if you could feel peace, find focus, and uncover your inner power?

Meditation can help you find inner peace, creativity, inspiration, harmonious relationships, fulfillment, better health, more self-awareness, and so much more. The mainstay of the program is breath awareness and silent sound meditation, both of which direct your attention inward and help you to reconnect with your center point of peace.

With benefits like that, it’s no wonder we’re seeing a huge interest in people wanting to learn to meditate.

Meditation is not just spiritual fluff or hippy dippy woo woo – it works at a physiological level to change the structure of the brain. For example, it strengthens the neural connections related to logic and rational assessment and weakens the neural connections related to fear and anger.

This results in greater self-awareness, emotional control, and puts space between our immediate judgments and responses. Thousands of clinical studies have been conducted to date that verifies meditation’s benefits.

Other amazing benefits include:

“Meditation for me is the chance to learn to relax and do absolutely nothing for a few minutes each day. To release some of the tension and breathe. It is a life-changing experience. It all started with a class called “The Power of Pause” with Marsha Nieland. All my life I have taken courses and gone to seminars where you are encouraged to push yourself further. How can I get more results with a few changes in my current lifestyle. Ultimately that meant adding more time and concentration to a life that was already crowded. Then add the pressure that, “others who are successful are doing it”.. why can’t you ?? The introduction of Meditation into my life is a gift I am giving to myself. Who doesn’t need or want to be more mindful? …who doesn’t want a chance to be more relaxed? I plan to make it a part of my life from here on. If you haven’t tried it ..you should .. you will never regret it.”

“Power of the Pause changed my life forever. Marsha’s knowledge, teaching style, and personality made me feel comfortable right away. I feel I am now equipped with better strategies for responding (not reacting) to life events and relationships in more non-judgmental ways. I know I am a better listener, more compassionate, more empathetic, more reflective, less stressed, and a better problem solver because of meditation. I have also connected with my inner being better than I ever have, which has helped me to find peace within myself, make decisions, and set goals. The Power of the Pause course has been a gift that keeps on giving, and Marsha Nieland is a gift to our community.”

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is for beginners or anyone who wants to get back on track with meditation.
If you are a more seasoned meditator then you might be interested in my “Peace Out” course coming in January.

Meditation is as easy as breathing. The hard work is to continue doing it. It only works if you use it. Meditation is not a switch you turn on and then be done with, you must keep flipping the switch of consciousness ON and practice daily.

This is really the nuts and bolts of it, isn’t it? Meditation is the practice of becoming aware of our thoughts, thought by thought. We can get lost in thought, like a kind of daydreaming, and float away. Or literally fall asleep and actually dream. But meditation is the opposite of this. It is absolute awareness: full attention, full presence to whatever is in front of us or within us, right now, just like it is. Meditation is full of exercises for practicing this. You will find that the benefits are so great that the practice is worth every minute. By awareness of the breath, concentration, focusing the mind, and other techniques, you will learn to befriend your thoughts and discover peace of mind.

Stillness is what meditation teaches. It’s something that we have to practice. If a new meditator is having trouble sitting still there are many exercises that are designed for just this condition, like focusing on the breath, for instance. Don’t forget that almost everyone when first meditating feels that they cannot become still, or quiet the mind. This is a normal stage in developing your meditation practice.

Right away, you will feel more present. This one thing changes everything. You become more conscious of how you deal internally with yourself, and your world. By meditating, everything from your work to your relationships, your business, your inner self-esteem and your sense of contribution to the world becomes richer. You can learn to be happy, fulfilled and feel whole. By being more present you become more focused and on purpose in your life. Your direction becomes clear and possible. You will find your attention to everything you do is better and less distracted and life becomes inspired!

Yes, it is most important that you are comfortable. We do prefer sitting in an upright position as opposed to laying down since that usually leads to sleep. It can be in a comfortable chair or couch, you don’t have to sit cross-legged on the floor.

No, meditation is a spiritual practice that will enrich and deepen the beliefs and understandings of followers of any religion. If you are not interested in the spiritual aspects you will still obtain great benefits, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Well, the good news is that it doesn’t really take all that much time. As soon as you pick up the basics by practicing for five or ten minutes each day.

Meditation benefits are almost immediate. The numerous health benefits that result from meditation are another great reason to adopt the practice. Certain benefits can start making themselves felt very quickly after people start sitting. A sense of calmness and peace of mind are common experiences, even if this feeling is fleeting and subtle.

From improving heart health to relieving back pain to boosting our memory, meditation offers a wide range of health benefits. Additionally, it helps us relax, decrease our stress levels, deal with anxiety, and sleep better. With this in mind, it’s not a surprise that the meditation statistics show how this ancient practice is growing in popularity both in the US and in the world.
People are becoming aware of how our stressful lifestyles negatively affect our physical and mental states, so they’ve started looking for new ways to get peace of mind. And meditation is just perfect for helping you achieve inner peace. By meditating we can find our way home again, and get back to ourselves. We can experience clarity and real peace. We are all searching for truth and meaning, and meditation will take us there – directly.
