Meditation, Nothing Is Real

Unknown indefinable freedom.



30 mins Class size 1 to 80     label $12


A half-hour live streaming "meditation" class. Unknown, indefinable freedom is what is.

Thoughts, emotions, and a contraction in the body is what's sensed as a seemingly separate "me". It seems to be what is happening. Separation seems real yet is an illusion. The "me" is searching - for a better me, for something, for enlightenment...enlightenment does not exist! You are freedom, emptiness, what is. There is just freedom. "You" is the illusory, seemingly separate person. Meditation does not make you free as you are already this.

Meditation can support the body, mental and emotional nervous system. It is beneficial to health. It's enjoyable to be in silence. You are freedom, even if not seen or experienced. You are freedom whether the body, thoughts, emotions feel comfortable or not.

Each class may be either a guided meditation or silence. Most classes are a mix of both. Freedom is what is.

For over the past 20 years I have been a professional artist in the medium of painting. I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at University of NSW, College of Fine Arts, Sydney. I worked in the film and photographic industries to then come back full circle to my love of painting. From this love I have exhibited in over 40 solo and group shows in galleries within Australia. Through my work I explore the essence of life – freedom, love, the unknown.

I also support people through one to one counselling sessions; classes, and retreats. Challenges with feeling separate, circumstances, emotions, the body, stories/thoughts, are all what comes and goes in this vastness of freedom. (for One to One sessions please contact me via my Instagram).

I am totally new to meditation and really enjoyed the sessions I have been in so far. Yvette is really great. Her guide is very helpful and her calming voice makes it easy for you to get into it.

I thoroughly enjoyed my guided meditation class with Yvette today.
I have struggled with anxiety and a racing mind and today with Yvette I slowed down.I felt great during and after the class.
I felt at peace.
Yvette has a great style and calming voice and I look forward to continuing my Sunday class in the future.
