One-to-one meditation guidance
One-to-one online meditation class
We learn meditation for many reasons. Sometimes we need to relieve stress, or give our minds a pause; we may seek to feel at peace, or simply develop greater self-awareness
Our one-to-one meditation lessons are guided by Adiba Osmani, who brings years of meditation practice, her knowledge of the proven benefits of different techniques and her intuitive style to meet your intention. Her method draws on mindfulness, compassion meditation, visualisations and gentle self-inquiry, combining meditation guidance and if appropriate, conversation
Her sessions are suitable for beginners looking to learn meditation or those already familiar with it who are looking for greater self-understanding. They are confidential and take place online
Adiba experienced her first meditation lesson 15 years ago on a hilltop in Asia where she was asked to observe a tree for an hour.
Since then she deepened her meditation practice and wrote about the scientific research on how the brain and body respond to meditation, before launching Inhere.
She combines meditation techniques from different traditions with intuitive self-inquiry to create a safe space for finding stillness, compassion and self-understanding.
Adiba has brought meditation to schools, offices, and audiences around the globe with Inhere’s meditation classes, talks, and bespoke meditation pods.
“Got deeper and more connected than ever could have hoped for meditating on my own”
“I loved and enjoyed the entire session… I genuinely really benefitted and would definitely recommend to others”
“Perfect balance between thoughtful guidance and silence in the session. Thank you”
“Meditating can be quite daunting as how do you not think about anything? However, Adiba quickly taught me some easy meditation techniques that I could use anywhere – even on the train into work. I’d been trying to get pregnant for over a year and after a month of using Adiba’s techniques I finally got pregnant. Obviously, I can’t say it was down to the meditation but I definitely felt the benefits of taking a few minutes out a day to reflect and to check in.”

Frequently Asked Questions
1. I can't stop my mind from thinking: how can I meditate?
If you can’t stop your mind from thinking, you’re not alone. You’ll soon find that practicing meditation is not about “stopping thinking”, as our minds tend to continuously bring up thoughts. While meditating we learn to watch the thoughts as they come and go, and so we create a little distance between ourselves and our thoughts. With practice we find that while we notice them, we are no longer consumed by them.
2. I have never tried meditation - is a private session a good idea?
Yes, one-to-one guidance gives you a chance to discuss your meditation training experience step by step, understand more of the theory, and delve deeper as you start to develop your meditation skills.
3. Do I need any props or any special outfit to join a class?
You don’t need any special outfit to meditate. There are no props required, just find a comfortable place where you can sit relatively straight, and be undisturbed for the duration of the class.
4. I meditate regularly - why should I join a meditation class?
5. Is meditation the same as mindfulness?
No. Meditation practice makes use of deep contemplation to enhance our awareness and understanding. Mindfulness is the state of being fully present to the moment, on purpose, without judgement. There are many different types of meditation, and one of the most common these days is mindfulness meditation – when we meditate to develop the quality of mindfulness. Almost all of our classes integrate mindfulness meditation, however all the teachers also combine other techniques and styles of meditation in the classes.
