“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.

Enhancing and Enriching "Consciousness"

We can make gradual changes to our environment to optimize our spiritual and mental well-being. And we can do that in such a way that the entire experience of the space will enhance and enrich us, shifting our energy and our focus to deeper levels of awareness and mindfulness.

You can get started by taking the assessment to understand if your environment is supporting your spiritual growth and development. 

Does your space nurture you?

Why a specific 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.

 

The Serenity Designer

 

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

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 in our busy lives.
