Ruth has great skill in her ability to take the mystery out of meditation and during her courses you will not only learn how to meditate but how to bring that mindfulness to your everyday life.

Are there times in your life when you feel anxious and distracted?

Are there situations in your life that are frustrating or difficult to manage? Times when you lack confidence? And times when you don’t sleep well and find life distressing.

My meditation classes help you bring ease, peace and vitality into your life by learning a mindfulness technique that is practical, simple and profound and can easily be assimilated into your daily routine.

This wonderful meditation technique is called Integrative Restoration or iRest®. I am a fully certified meditation teacher and have been very fortunate to train under the founder of the Integrative Restoration Organisation Dr. Richard Miller PhD.  (

Would you like to be able to calmly respond to the many challenges that life brings? Would you like to be able to relax deeply on a daily basis?

You will learn to tune into your own awareness of your body, thoughts, feelings and emotions. You will learn how to calmly respond to the challenges that life brings with control and composure, rather than allowing yourself to engage in habitual behaviour that doesn’t support you.

After the first session I immediately felt better, lighter and more in control than I had in a long time. All I can say is … try it.  It’s life changing.

Meditation studio

I am passionate about teaching people how easy it is to incorporate mindfulness into their daily lives through the practice of meditation, and in doing so reap the enormous rewards that this brings.

You will enjoy immersing yourself in your practice in the peaceful, warm surroundings of my meditation studio in Ashburton where you can settle in a comfy chair, sit on a meditation stool or lie on the floor. No need to be able to sit cross legged!!!


I’ve done many different types of meditation and enjoyed them, but this is something different.

Ruth has great skill in her ability to take the mystery out of meditation and during her courses you will not only learn how to meditate but how to bring that mindfulness to your everyday life.

I highly recommend Ruth’s Integrative Restoration meditation course.
It’s a practice I’m sure you will want to continue for life. I know I do.

It is through self-inquiry of iRest that you will begin to see that it is possible to live with joy, ease and peace while still engaging fully in everything that goes on in your world.

You will receive written and audio material to support your practice and on-going drop in meditation groups are available on completion of the introductory course.
