Khalis shares about his meditation experience

‘In my experience meditation is not the idealised hours of sitting in blissful nirvana but is the one, two or three seconds during the day when you stop, take a deep breath and bring your attention back to the present moment – (When you wash your hands, when you make a cup of coffee, when you’re waiting for the elevator – instead of indulging in thinking, these are all opportunities for being there as a still, alert presence.’ ~Khalis

Khalis has been sharing his passion for meditation for over 10 years. His way of teaching is inspiring and fun.

‘The meditation took me to a place no other meditation has taken me to. I associate this to the process we went through the length of daily meditation and variety of techniques used.

I am now in a different place to where I was when I arrived and I have clarity and the skills to return to peace quickly.’

Beverley, participant

Kimaya shares about energy management and meditation…

‘Our emotions can play an important role in how we think and behave in daily life.

This can control us in such a way that we feel imprisoned by our own behaviours and patterns and we keep looping in circles.

To break these patterns, we need to start moving the energy. Active meditations can support us immensely to grow awareness and to bring the energy into motion.

Personally I also experienced how much of my energy went into the story. Living it over and over again and wasting A LOT of my energy (and time). I needed to learn to detach from the story and move from the story into the sensations of the body and just be present with whatever is there. This was a great teaching in how I can manage my energy.

How do you manage your energy?

  • Are you giving your energy away?
  • Is it stuck?
  • Are you able to receive?
  • And are you ready to let go of the story? (not everybody is and that’s okay as well)

Active meditations are a super powerful tool to move into the energy and express in the moment with movement, breath and sound. The energy starts to move and the change happens, it’s the very nature of our being.‘ ~ Kimaya

Kimaya is an energy channeler and will share her wisdom and tools this weekend to deeply ground into the silence of your BEing.


Why might this weekend be for you?

The beginning of the new year is always a good moment to re-evaluate life and start to create change, but how often do we drop those new habits, simply because we don’t have the determination and perseverance to keep going.

A moment to evaluate life:
What excites you?
What gives you energy?
And….what is holding you back?

Meditation is a tool to clear the body and mind and … awareness grows and … new patterns can be built.

New patterns of how you think and feel and you create a new reality.

This weekend might give you the structure and tools to keep moving forward and give you a bigger chance to succeed.

Meet other people, meet yourself, meet silence…

On this weekend workshop you will experience:

  • Active meditations
  • Gentle Emotional Release
  • Somatic Movement
  • Resourcing Techniques
  • Sharing Circle
  • Silence

Your facilitators

In the mid 80’s Khalis left Glasgow depressed and possibly on his way to being an alcoholic. He was looking to find happiness out there in the big wide horizon. Travelling the world, he arrived in California and bumped into the world of Osho and meditation.

‘The answer wasn’t out there, it was in there.’

The ever-evolving discovery of the simple process of sitting and focusing on breathing brought him a sense of wonder, calm and empowerment. He didn’t need alcohol, money or women to feel valued.

Looking inside at all his supposed imperfections and mind f*cks he found a long and winding road towards acceptance.
He has been meditating (also active meditations involving moving his body and using his voice) for over 30 years and he still gets stressed and anxious, BUT through meditation techniques he has the tools that help navigate his life in a healthy way. Meditation is the foundation on which he is built and he likes to share this passion with other people.

After a difficult few years feeling depressed and low about life, Kimaya wondered: ‘Is this it for me?’.
She started a 3-year yoga teacher training which was the beginning of her long transformative journey. She felt called to explore different kinds of meditation and personal growth trainings and started to shed all the layers which were holding her back to live life fully.
It was a path of focus and determination, discovering a deepening through a variety of experiences such as: Osho Active Meditations, Vippassana, Mystic Rose, Darkness Retreat, Social Meditations and Who’s In, to name a few.

In 2015, after a 5-day Vision Quest, Kimaya entered a space of deep silence for a few months and, although daily life started to take over again, the stillness never left and is felt in her every day presence.

‘In the presence of silence, the gifts unfold’

Kimaya guides and supports people on the path of self-discovery in a holistic, body-based, and grounded way. Her meditations are profound in many ways.

Don’t miss this chance to rejuvenate your spirit and tap into your inner stillness.

‘The meditation took me to a place no other meditation has take me to.  I associate this to the process we went through the length of daily meditation and variety of techniques used.

I am now  in a different place to where I was when I arrived and exactly where I hoped to be.

I have clarity, peace and skills to return to peace quickly as soon as a challenge that disrupts the peace present. 
I’m hopeful this effect of this immersion into meditation  workshop willnot dissipate and be forgotten as it feels like it’s been fully integrated and is a part of me now, as you made it so simple and easy to use in everyday life.   
Thank you both for these peaceful moments for your skills and knowledge and dedication to your sharing of these  to support others.’
Beverly Strachan, Wales

‘The weekend was awesome and truly inspiring for me. Kimaya and Khalis made it all the more special. 

Osho Leela is my new spiritual home. 
Thank you again for everything. 
I wish you an abundance of peace, love and happiness.’
Mark, participant Art of Active Meditation

“I have done lots of various meditations in my life and a couple of times with Kimaya. It seems like meditations led by her take me to another realm.

There’s something more happening, I can’t explain. I get deeper and move into bliss, peace, stillness and gratitude.

When I knew she’s running a weekend workshop together with Khalis. It was a no brainer, I just have to join.

Khalis’s jokes and Kimaya’s calm energy and presence is a recipe for succes. Can’t wait!”

Hanycka, participant Leela Life Training

“Kimaya is an amazing woman who holds space and people in a deep and profound way. She helped me to release a lifetime of pent up emotions and I begin to move in a new life direction. Provided me with keys to explore my vulnerability, start releasing long held emotions and find my joy through dancing and active meditation.

A no nonsense facilitator who knows how to reach deep within a person and flick switches. Thoroughly recommend this facilitator.”

Cliff Walker, Scotland
“Khalis’s explanation of the Dynamic Meditation was very simple, clear and helpful for everybody.”
Anterdeep, Bollywood Dancer

“Khalis always does amazing meditation courses.”

Victoria, school teacher

“Before the meditation, Khalis gave a short explanation of how we are addicted to the mind. It was helpful for me to understand what is meditation.”
