A meditation based on Martial Arts : Meditation in Motion by Senzea

Meditation in motion is coordinated mobility and breathing exercises designed to help leaders in growing companies manage stress and boost creativity. The use of movement makes this meditation accessible even to the most fidgety go-getter. 

We will practice together :

  • Meditation postures
  • Deep breathing synchronization with movement exercises
  • Slow mobility exercises
  • Slow balance exercises
  • Self-massage elements

How does meditation help you as a leader ?

Study after study shows that meditation is a great asset in your life.  It enhances your productivity by helping you  focus and lowering your stress. You think outside of the box, so it increases your creativity, your positivity, reduces mental snags, and helps with your relationships at the office.  

As an entrepreneur, I spend almost all my time thinking about my business.  What I love about meditation is the ability to become aware and live in the present moment. When I am with my partner, my family or my friends, I want to be "Fred" and let go of any other identification such as being the founder of Senzea. I love my work, but life is bigger than that, and my meditation practice lets me be present for all of it.

The Human Journal

THE MOST EFFECTIVE DAILY WAY TO BE MORE PRESENT AND HAVE BETTER RELATIONSHIPS

This journal primes you to have a great day, not just within yourself, but in your connections with the world and to the people around you. It complements any meditation or gratitude practice, and provides an operational warm-up exercise for you to move from the disconnected you to the you that connects with the world throughout your day.

This is the antidote to autopilot, and a way to be more human, no matter how much you use technology during your day.

Frequent Asked Questions

Why have a "retreat" in the city ?

The city is where we live, work, struggle and succeed. You don't need more awareness in a resort in a secluded forest, you need it in your daily life as it really exists here in Vancouver! You've experienced days when you had flow, where you were unstoppable.  No crisis could get in your way.  Your focus was unshakeable. 

Your morning routine is the foundation for creating consistency of flow.  

 

Do I need any knowledge of meditation ?

No previous meditation experience is required, everyone is welcome. 

 

Do I have to make it every single morning, or can I skip days if I'm traveling or too busy?

Leaders are busy and you do have obligations at work. For the dynamic of the group, we'll ask you to do your best to come, we would miss you if you're not coming. Your best is more than plenty ! We'll also share a private group chat, so you can send us a picture of you on your mat or a happy note that you meditated before you went for your talk and kicked some ass  -- we'll support you the best we can !

 

Why 21 days of meditation ?

21 days is the minimum time to rewire your habit... but, look closer at the dates, if you include the weekends, it's 27 days which is the minimum time to make new neurological connections. Our goal is to help you to be independent and give you tools to make your morning routines easier.

What do we say about Senzea Meditation in Motion ?

This was a really tremendous experience. It is unique and different to other things I have tried, like guided meditation, tai chi and yoga. It gave me a really great sense of peace in my mind and body, and was a cool way to connect with some new people too. Great conversations afterwards
