Hello from Yvette at Place of Serenity –
- Look at a tree, a flower, a plant… Allow nature to teach you stillness. Eckhart Tolle
About Place of Serenity
♥ The name was inspired by the surrounding South Downs where I live in Hampshire. There are gently rolling hills and beautiful trees. Its double-meaning represents how you have the capacity to find your own place of serenity within yourself. You can achieve this inner calm whenever you take the time to be still and quiet. This is essential when life can feel hectic and uncertain these days.
About Yvette at Place of Serenity
♥ My experiences as a mum, a teacher, an editor, an energy healer and several years of health challenges filter into my work. This gives me a practical and compassionate understanding as I work with a range of women, possibly just like you!
My approach is to live a calmer, connected pace of life in a full-on, frenetic world. I have found that being mindful and implementing small chunks of meditation across my days is essential. I am passionate about giving other women these same tools.
I love to remember that in other parts of the world, the word for ‘mind’ is the same as ‘heart’. As you develop your mindfulness you develop a more open heart. This mindful approach to life is underlined by the key qualities of kindness and compassion. As women, we might find ourselves expressing these qualities towards others, yet often forget to include ourselves!
