Why a Peaceful Space?

To calm you. To quiet you. To remind you to stop and breathe. To reinforce your mindfulness practice. To reduce your stress and anxiety. To increase your awareness. To heighten your creativity and productivity. Because noise and distractions are everywhere.

 

“Short moments, many times.” — Old Tibetan Wisdom

With a few modifications to the character of a space, we can create a place of centering that beckons us to take refuge in the quiet recesses of our mind. When we enter a peaceful space, we are reminded to center ourselves and become increasingly mindful of our thoughts, our actions and our being.

We have a room for everything – eating, sleeping, watching TV – but we have no room for mindfulness. I recommend we set up a small room in our homes . . . where we can be alone and practice just breathing. That little room should be regarded as an Embassy of the Kingdom of Peace.

Neuroscience and Design

“a peaceful space” is one approach to centering ourselves from the “outside in”, using the interior space as a trigger to mindful practice. It is a very specific and proven approach to integrating cognitive awareness and enlightenment with the interior environment.

The Serenity Designer

We are a serenity design consultancy focused on creating interior spaces in the home and office conducive to mindfulness and contemplative practice. This space, which I call a nurturary™ closes the gap between needing to practice, “making the time” to practice and actually becoming the “practice”.
