Rest your mind

Guided meditation

Meditation brings greater clarity, serenity and insight, transforming our state of being when practiced over time. It has been shown to relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and bring more calm, focus, creativity, resilience, and even slow down ageing.

Whether you’re looking to learn techniques to give your mind a pause, or develop greater awareness and self-understanding, I tailor my guidance to meet your intention.

I draw on mindfulness techniques, compassion meditation, visualisations and gentle self-enquiry to guide our sessions.

My sessions are suitable for beginners looking to learn meditation or those already familiar with it who are looking for greater self-understanding. They are confidential and take place online.

About me

I experienced my first meditation lesson 15 years ago on a hilltop in Asia where I was asked to observe a tree for an hour.

Since then I deepened my meditation practice and researched the science on how the brain and body respond to meditation, before being inspired to guide meditations myself.

I combine meditation techniques from different traditions with intuitive self-inquiry to create a safe space for finding stillness, compassion and self-understanding.

I am an accredited meditation teacher (IPHM) and have guided meditations in universities, offices and for audiences around the globe.

“Meditating can be quite daunting as how do you not think about anything? However, Adiba quickly taught me some easy meditation techniques that I could use anywhere – even on the train into work. I’d been trying to get pregnant for over a year and after a month of using Adiba’s techniques I finally got pregnant. Obviously, I can’t say it was down to the meditation but I definitely felt the benefits of taking a few minutes out a day to reflect and to check in.”

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I can't stop my mind from thinking: how can I meditate?

If you can’t stop your mind from thinking, you’re not alone. You’ll soon find that practicing meditation is not about “stopping thinking”, as our minds tend to continuously bring up thoughts. While meditating we learn to watch the thoughts as they come and go, and so we create a little distance between ourselves and our thoughts. With practice we find that while we notice them, we are no longer consumed by them.

2. I have never tried meditation - is a private session a good idea?

Yes, one-to-one guidance gives you a chance to discuss your meditation training experience step by step, understand more of the theory, and delve deeper as you start to develop your meditation skills.

3. Do I need any props or any special outfit to join a class?

You don’t need any special outfit to meditate. There are no props required, just find a comfortable place where you can sit relatively straight, and be undisturbed for the duration of the session. 

4. I meditate regularly - why should I join a meditation class?

Regular meditators find that they benefit from the different styles of guidance. Sometimes when we practice on our own we tend to follow the same flow of meditation, so it’s refreshing to try different techniques to enhance our practice. Some people also find that the live connection and discussion with a guide deepens their practice.

5. Is meditation the same as mindfulness?

No. Meditation practice makes use of deep contemplation to enhance our awareness and understanding. Mindfulness is the state of being fully present to the moment, on purpose, without judgement. There are many different types of meditation, and one them is mindfulness meditation – when we meditate to develop the quality of mindfulness. Almost all of my sessions integrate mindfulness meditation, as well as other meditative practices.
