Our hearts naturally open when we sit with cats: both literally (they lower blood pressure and stress), and metaphorically (because they offer us unconditional love and acceptance). They also help us connect to these qualities within ourselves during meditation.
Cats live in the moment: through sharing meditation with them they can (and will!) help us to do the same. Let them teach you how to let go of worries and distractions so you can embrace feelings of gratitude + peace.
To optimise your wellbeing: Meditation provides many health benefits. Stress relief, increased focus/ memory and better sleep are just a few reasons to meditate, all supported by scientific research. Who better to learn and practice meditation with than 12 furry zen masters!

This is an ongoing initiative for The Cat Cafe since 2018. This class is great for beginners in meditation, and for those with more experience who would like to learn about engaging animals in their practice. Carolyn's methods can be shared with any and all animals, so you can use the techniques learned with any of your pets or creature friends, not just cats.
We all need to take a moment to relax and decompress, and what better way than with the masterful teaching of rescue cats!
