What does a balanced life look like?
I discovered Skellegense at age twenty eight during a period of intense soul-searching and self-exploration. The resonant practice is founded on an intuitive sense of what is right for the individual, and it can include any combination of Yoga, meditation and life-coaching.
I I believe in the individuality of each client and work to develop a custom blend of practices, helping to bring a heightened and intuitive understanding of oneself. Each practice works together because they are completely non-competitive—not with other people in the room, other sessions, or other periods in your life.
Using The Three Pillars as a foundation, Skellegense is structured to push you to touch your personal edge without bursting through it.
The Three Pillars
Skellegense is founded on the belief that each life has three basic necessities, or as they are referred to in Zen practice, The Three Pillars. A balanced and healthy life includes: study, the Sangha, or spiritual community, and practice.
The first pillar of a balanced lifestyle is to create a habit of reading materials that focus on meditation, stress reduction but also inspiration. This can include biographies, novels, poetry, picture books or anything that inspires you. Do not discount the power of inspiration. It is far more likely to go from an inspired mind to a calm one. Remember that consistently—even in small amounts—is more important than concentrated, but occasional effort.
The Sangha, or spiritual community, is the second pillar. This could be a group, or just an individual you meet with on a weekly basis. Connecting with others who are doing practice, even if it occurs at a distance, is very impactful. Your companions on this path will help to keep you connected, and you will help them. The combined energy of this group is more powerful than the sum of the individuals.
The final pillar, and perhaps most important, is the life of practice itself. This is where you can benefit most from joining our community. There is no substitute for investing time and energy in yourself. Again, this does not have to be a great investment of time. Like study, a little consistently is more important than gorging yourself with practice once in a while. Even taking two minutes a day to pay attention to all that you can will change your life.
