Research from many conventional universities, medical schools and health centers has shown that regular meditation and mindfulness practice have a great potential in improving symptoms of anxiety and depression, reducing pain, instigating positive psychological change and also increasing telomerase activity, which is used as a predictor of long-term cellular viability. There are also proven benefits when it comes to improving relationships with ourselves and others around us.

Six Senses Meditation, a focus on mindfulness, has been created around the brand’s philosophy of six senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch and the elusive sixth sense. Research shows that meditation provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day, and by using mindfulness practices, Six Senses aims to lead the guests to a more balanced state of being.  The Six Senses yoga teacher begins by  offering a piece of fruit and a drop of essential oil on everyone’s hand and then guides the group through their meditation. Practitioners are encouraged to “see” their third eye, inhale the essential oil, hear the unheard, feel the earth and focus on the taste of the fruit as they progress through their meditation. The sixth sense is represented by the heart chakra and practitioners are asked to expand their heart, reconnect and feel love for themselves and others around the world. It is only when our hearts open, that we can feel compassion and genuine empathy for others.

Meditation sessions are offered complimentary and on a regular basis at Six Senses spas around the world. At Six Senses resorts, guests can enjoy guided meditation at the end of group yoga classes. Six Senses resorts and spas have also introduced short sessions before or after wellness workshops and visiting practitioner talks. There is something for every guest keen to deepen their holiday relaxation and tame the monkey mind.  

Anna Bjurstam, vice president of Six Senses Spas, said, “My daily meditation practice has become as natural and beneficial as any morning ritual, and we are proud to be sharing the benefits of meditation and mindfulness practice in a way that anyone can grasp. It is a path to happiness and balance that is supported by research.”
