You know that sense you get when something just doesn’t ‘feel’ right? It’s somewhat of an intuition, and we often experience it in our gut. Well it turns out that this isn’t just wishy washy hippy nonsense. There is some science behind it too! Basically, there is a part of the brain called the basal ganglia whose function we understand is to gather information on everything that we do in life and help us make decisions based on this information. Since the basal ganglia is part of our inner, more primitive brain, which is not connected at all to our verbal cortex (part of our more evolved part of the brain), it means that none of this information can be relayed to us in the form of words. The basal ganglia is however connected to our emotional centre of the brain and to our gut, so it relays the information to us in the form of feelings. This explains why we experience that gut instinct numerous times a day. And this is why you should trust it!

Such a lovely break from the busy CBD, I've gone every single lunchtime and it really sets me up for the rest of the day. Would recommend to anyone, plus the chairs are super comfy and you can wrap up in a blanket provided too, very relaxing.

Signing up for their two week into offer was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made so far - the place is so nice, with large comfy arm chairs, blankets, free tea, filter water and coconut water. Plus the guided meditation was amazing! I felt so much more relaxed and grounded afterwards as well.

Best decision I’ve made all year. I’ve been struggling with chronic back pain for over 2 years which has been physically and mentally challenging. I see a great physio and exercise physiologist but only ever made small improvements. Meditation on the other hand as genuinely changed my life. I’ve been coming to centred meditation for 2 months and in that time have made more progress than I have in the last 2 years. My anxiety around the pain has almost completely gone and I’m actually back running again. It has been amazing. I’ve tried meditation in the past but could never really get into it. I’m now loving it and I really like the teaching style. I highly recommend you do the 2 week trial and get as many sessions in as you can so you can really feel the benefits.

Centred meditation is a fantastic way to wind down during the working day & get some calm into your day. The setting is perfect - with tea, comfortable armchairs & blankets! The speakers are brilliant & its become part of my daily routine. Would highly recommend you to try it out!

Excellent place for guided meditation. The guides are all very friendly and keep to time so I never have to worry about getting back to work. Helps me greatly with improving my concentration and just overall wellness of mind! I have recommended it to many and will continue to do so!
