“One does not practice meditation to become a great meditator. We meditate to wake up and live, to become skilled at the art of living.” — Elizabeth Lesser
Busy individuals often say they don’t mediate because they don’t have time. They wear busyness like a badge of honour. What if I told you that slowing down and meditating buys you more time?
There’s an old Zen saying:
“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.”
The meaning is simple: the busier you are, the more you need to meditate. We can’t afford to, you say. I believe you can’t afford not to.
We're living in a time of immense uncertainty, challenge and change. We can't control our circumstances, but we can choose how we respond to them.
Your Still Space
Give yourself the gift of space and stillness to find focus, experience peace and uncover your inner resilience and strength. You have the power to live a life of deep calm in the face of stress triggers.
You may feel overwhelmed in the day to day, but you can also choose differently—to cultivate presence, generosity, compassion and playfulness.
Developing a regular mediation practice can increase your effectiveness by improving self-control, concentration and mental clarity. You can enhance your emotional intelligence and reduce stress.
Join my 6-week Meditation Circle designed to create a space where like-hearted people can come together to shift our energy with greater understanding, insight, wisdom, encouragement and community support.
Leave feeling less battle weary and more peaceful. Enjoy your new sense of calm.
You can't give what you don't have.
By serving yourself first and filling up your own cup, you'll see the positive ripple effects in others.

How it works
I’m Deidre Dattoli. As a certified meditation coach and trainer, I offer a powerful set of techniques and practices to create strong and sustainable foundations for inner peace, clarity and confidence. These simple and insightful techniques are geared to spark your own personal practice.
Through routine meditation, you’ll have an opportunity to reflect and discover a deeper sense of self and purpose. You’ll face your world centred, calm and with peace.
My approach is simple yet profoundly impactful. Each session delivers something new to work with and mindfulness practices you can adopt throughout the day, with tips to help make them stick.
Through mediation, you’ll reduce stress, increase effectiveness and resilience, and take day-to-day life to another level of being present, confident and compassionate.
Meditation is simply attention training. By training yourself to be more intentional about the attention you pay to your mind, body, and emotions, you can step into a place of choice—a place of power to design your life and open your heart.
Bringing meditation and mindfulness into your daily life is a playful adventure, and a gift to yourself and everyone around you.
Each week, as we meditate together, you’ll learn great techniques that strengthen your foundation and help you develop regular, lasting meditation and mindfulness practices.
6 x 30-minute sessions to enjoy, connect with self and others, and explore your meditation and mindfulness practice.
