Session for Hilton in Gdansk

Lovely venue, location and thanks for the invitation to be a part of the International Woman Day in beautiful Hilton. I express my personal thanks to Katarzyna Wojtak who tried to make it work. 

How nice it is when people show interest in what you do and you feel that you can help. Especially when you immigrate to another country and have to work on your connections from the scratch. 

Unfortunately, the onset of COVID-19 influenced the number of people and we were not able to hold this event for a large number of hotel guests as we wanted. I hope the next attempt will be more eventful and soon we’ll forget about the problems of organizing offline events related to the pandemic.

I presented bodily practices and meditation session at the hotel. 

There are many benefits of meditation, including reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integral Health (NCCIH), meditation is also effective in treating:

-Irritable bowel syndrome


-High blood pressure

-Pains of different origins

It cannot be denied that meditation will have a positive impact on everyone, regardless of age. In short, meditation improves mental health and self-awareness and allows us to respect everything around us.

The actual word “meditation” comes from the Latin verb “meditari”, which translates into English "to think, contemplate, invent." Meditation is also the seventh (dhyana) of the eight components of yoga according to Pantajali’s Yoga Sutras. It is a mental state that is achieved through the practice of yoga.

Do you know how to meditate? If not, read few ideas below and try it yourself at home:

Various meditation techniques, breathing techniques, work in pairs, work in a circle, various bodily practices are very well suited for hotel guests.

Some hotels choose to hire a permanent employee for such events or may invite different participants who will hold such events for example on certain holidays, like Valentine's Day, International Women's Day, as a bonus part of the conference, and others. These days it’s certainly possible to arrange the above online.
