The only true necessity to mindfulness is befriending your breath like your life depends on it.

It seems like the world is getting more and more stressed and we’re forgetting to breathe until we can no longer think. The greatest tool to de-stressing our lives is to breathe deeply, rhythmically, intentionally until we become one with it, our bodies and our gratitude.

I founded Mindful Necessities as a dedication to support education in mindful practice and meditation foremost; to become a world that finds happiness through inquiry and wholeness.

There is chaotic and frenetic energy that many of us wake up to every day and it’s good to be reminded that it coexists with peace and beauty everywhere and all the time. Mindful Necessities create articles and lead retreats that remind you to go there.  See the best in the best, see the best in the worst. I am personally very grateful to have something tangible to hang on to that can help me focus and feel centred in my life. I’m not saying I live without struggles and suffering. I suffer just like everyone, and when I do, I am grateful to be wearing beautiful tools that can help me reflect on healing what has become imbalanced. I make sure that whether I’m at home or on the road I always have a sacred space that invites me to sit and expand my meditation practice. More often than not I’ll wear a mala that holds my intention, a spinning meditation ring that soothes my nerves or a piece of jewellery with an engraved poetic message that helps me reflect on what I need to see.


We work with that objective in the studio for you as well.  All these touchstones are created with the highest intention, integrity and sustainability possible. Everything is priced according to our investment of material, time and energy. I hope you can find what you need, if and when you need it to feel ignited in your heart centre and your purpose.

Knowing how important resetting is to to find our centre, I do regular retreats. Finding balance with our body, mind and spirit is critical for our health and any sense of peace.

Like a computer, we can get away with putting it in sleep mode then reopen it to all the tabs we’ve been working on. Sometimes you need to close every window and shutdown completely. We are just the same. When we step out of the patterns of our daily lives we are far more able to see ourselves completely and objectively and can better align what is imbalanced. Three years ago I started taking small groups on retreat with me in aim to do exactly that. Find your joy.

From my heart to yours, stay blessed.

On Home Soil
On Home Soil

by Gisele Theriault April 07, 2019

The beauty of eastern cultures is that whatever is unfolding is collective. It’s not an individual matter. It’s not just one that is suffering. We were all in it together. There is tremendous healing in that realization alone.

we are always on route yet perfect where we are
we are always on route yet perfect where we are

by Gisele Theriault March 31, 2019

We are by nature always in motion. From our waking hour to our return to sleep each day, each month, each year. From our birth to our death.  No matter what we do, where we go, who we share experiences with or what they are, the motion is life. Even in the present moment that we are in. Every inhale is fresh life and every exhale becomes the past.

THE HEADS DOWN GENERATION
THE HEADS DOWN GENERATION

by Gisele Theriault March 24, 2019

The Heads Down Generation generally refers to those born after the 80’s but I would say the majority of the population is affected by the lure of our devices. Look around you in public places. Everywhere, people are almost qualified in their lives by their connection to a world that lives in their phone. We are losing the ability to be connected with one another where we are. We are even losing the map to the heart of who we are.  Depression and anxiety are on the rise. We are identifying with a digital world we have no empathetic connection to. The sense of who we think we should be to fit in and be accepted by others is currently framed by social media, celebrities and corporate branding. This makes my heart sink...
