Book an Animal-Led Meditation session for your animal companion today!
Offering Animal-Led Meditation to your animal companion is a wonderful way to support their emotional needs, and promote relaxation and stress-relief. This unique method helps create a peaceful and supportive environment for every animal, no matter what their species, background or sensitivity.
Choose one session or a package of four for the best value. Each session is 30 minutes long and is done distantly.
WHAT TO EXPECT
What to expect.
We do not diagnose conditions, prescribe medications, perform medical treatments or interfere with the prescribed treatment of veterinarians. We do not manipulate energy, engage in animal communication, or attempt to control animals during sessions: animals are the leaders in the process deciding how, and if, they want to relax with us in meditation.
The sessions are conducted distantly. Because animals mirror your energy, it is important that you are part of the process. Therefore, you will be guided through a specialized meditation that you can share with your pet.
HOW TO PREPARE
How to prepare.
If possible, choose a time for your session when the animal will be naturally relaxed, not a time where they usually get their walk, dinner, potty break, etc.
Make sure the animal is in a comfortable space - i.e., the living room on the couch, bedroom on the bed, etc.
Try and eliminate distractions. (Example: You don’t want to be watching TV, doing chores or have other types of interruptions if possible, while your animal family member is in their session.) You want to create a space as soothing and relaxing as possible for everyone.
Your participation can be very helpful to the relaxation of your animal family member. You can participate either by sitting with your animal and joining the meditation (we can help guide you), or you can just sit quietly beside them.
This is a time for you let go of worry or fear about your animal’s health situation and just relax and be together with your animal. A good mantra to use is, “All is well.”

Sessions of relaxation and bonding with your pet can be incredibly beneficial for both you and your furry friend. Spending quality time with pets can have a positive impact on your mental and emotional well-being.
Research has shown that meditation can bring about numerous health benefits, including:
- Lowering Blood Pressure: Meditation practices, especially those focused on mindfulness and deep breathing, can help reduce stress and promote relaxation. This, in turn, may lead to lower blood pressure levels, which is beneficial for cardiovascular health.
- Reducing Anxiety: Regular meditation can help calm the mind and reduce symptoms of anxiety. By cultivating a greater sense of awareness and control over your thoughts, you can better manage anxious feelings and reactions.
- Managing Stress: Meditation is well-known for its stress-reducing effects. It allows you to take a break from the daily stressors, promoting a state of mental and physical relaxation.
When you combine the positive effects of spending time with your pet and engaging in meditation, you may experience even greater benefits.
Remember that the key to successful meditation is consistency. Regular practice can lead to more significant and long-lasting positive effects on your overall well-being. It's also essential to choose a meditation style that suits you best, as there are various approaches to meditation, including mindfulness meditation, guided meditation, and loving-kindness meditation, among others.
Always consult with a healthcare professional if you have specific health concerns or conditions before making meditation a part of your wellness routine.
