Simon | Yogi & Meditation Teacher | Gili Meno, Lombok


“Meditation is the Medication.”

I was recently in Bali and visited the Gili Islands, stopping at Gili Meno to stay a few days with friends.  I stayed at “maoMeno Resort” on the island, where I got to meet Simon, an incredible yogi and meditation teacher.  He has a calm, gentle presence and the few days I stayed there, we had many soulful conversations about life.  One morning, we met for a sunrise shoot on the beach close to the resort.  There is something peaceful about seeing and the feeling the start of a new day.  One can’t help but be quiet and reflect internally.  Taking photos is my connection to something higher.

Simon introduced me to meditation which I’ve been practising a couple of weeks now.  And summed up:

“Meditation is like mental surgery. The practice of becoming present, where you can access deeper parts of yourself”. “Starting to accept the present moment as it is, without trying to recreate the past or project to the future. Through a meditation practice you may notice shifts in your ability to experience joy, acceptance, non-judgement, intuitive awareness and compassion for others. Starting with yourself, the goodness will naturally spread to others”.

Here are some favourites from Simon’s shoot.  Keep a lookout on my blog next week for a family and couple shoot in Bali and Lombok.
