Many studies worldwide have shown that meditation not only has a significant benefit to the physiological and neurological health of your brain, it can also greatly assist with your sense of inner peace and well-being.
There are many types of meditation practices and a wonderful set of meditations and tools to assist has been developed by members of GRG called the Stars of Aroha®
Stars of Aroha® Meditation products
In 2015 Nette Scurr knew she needed to calm her mind – Nette had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was waiting for a mastectomy (in New Zealand the gold standard time frame is six weeks). Nette and her partner began to meditate using easy guided meditations and daily affirmations. They were new at this practice but it didn’t take long for them to get used to it.
Two weeks before her operation Nette told her partner “I am the happiest I have ever been - I would really like to help other women find peace”. You see, Nette had successfully replaced her fearful mind with a peaceful mind through using simple guided meditations. Immediately Nette’s partner responded “Would you like me to write a meditation book and create some tools to help you?” “Yes” Nette replied. And that is how Stars of Aroha® began.
Stars of Aroha® Meditation Products are specifically designed to help people foster a peaceful mind (through a self-help guided meditation tool). Stars of Aroha® products can be viewed and bought online at http://www.starsofaroha.co.nz and through selected distributors.
