WELCOME TO JUST BE STUDIOS

HERE'S OUR STORY

Struggling to understand who you are?

I'VE BEEN THERE.

Way too much going on

WHERE DO I START? 

Life was so overwhelming in my head that I was getting anxiety attacks. The demands of being a corporate executive, mother, friend, colleague, sister, partner or just being a woman was just way too much. The demands on myself was becoming out of control.  I was lost.

I reached the TOP and now what

CHASING AFTER THE DESIRES AND DREAMS, THE GRIND OF JUST EXISTING

At the age of 32yrs old, I reached what I desired and the goals that I planned.  Achievement after achievement, working towards goals, what I thought will give me what I needed and wanted resulted in me feeling alone and not truly fulfilled. Something was missing.

To a mind that is still, a whole universe surrenders

THINKING IT WAS THE END

I knew something was missing. Seeking and searching made me more frustrated. Until I realized the way out was in. Within I found stillness and my sanctuary to which I could retreat at any time. By being still I created a creative space to allow myself to feel, think, dream and question.

The way out, is in

I STOPPED LOOKING OUTSIDE OF MYSELF

A belief system that taught me to fix all that needs to be fixed outside of myself and never taught to look at myself.  The more I learnt what this meant, the more I unlearned and relearned what works for me and not others.

Making a choice

FOR ME AND NOT OTHERS

Fear, failure and disappointment is what surrounded me.  Did I still want to be that same person and to pretend to be somebody that I knew I wasn't anymore?  I looked in the mirror and saw a person that was lost and didn't belong.  I asked myself what is true and what do I want?  I had to make a choice.

A desire to live a life with acceptance

BY BEING MINDFUL OF THE PRESENT

What does that even mean, I must admit it does sound awesome but what did it meant to accept and just to be present. Through being mindful it taught me to accept the present moment without judgement.  Time became an illusion.

You are the love and joy beneath the pain

WAS BORN WITH AN ENDING OF AN OLD STORY

I started understanding my suffering and pain. I learnt how to suffer and with that along came acceptance, love and joy. I meet myself in stillness and follow my in-breath and out-breath. The wound is the place where the light enters you.

Fell in Love

WITH THE EXPRESSION OF TRUTH

I fell in love with myself.  Through suffering, forgiveness, acceptance, understanding and kindness, I belonged. I found were I belonged to self and once I accepted who I am to self. Something that no religion, culture or belief as taught us, to love thy self-first before all else. 

Found Purpose

THROUGH CREATIVITY AND COURAGE

We are all seeking for something, some want to understand why we are here in this life. I discovered my purpose, the disruptor, the voice of change and that's when I created JustBe Studios, a practice centre where you can Just-Be. A practice centre that teaches you, as we start to question, disrupt and rediscover who we are!

My Truth, My Story

TELL ME YOURS!

Never be a prisoner of your past, it was just a lesson. It's hard to hear the truth leave alone accepting it. Change is never painful only the resistance to change is painful.

 

Today JustBe Studios hosts workshops, retreats across the world and teaches corporates, entrepreneurs and businesses, to work with consciousness through well-being programs, meditation and storytelling by help in finding one's self.

ABOUT US

Just Be was established in 2020 as the business entity of OpenMic Foundation (NGO|. Just Be has been created to bring together a bigger vision of helping humanity to connect with themselves to awaken nature inside of them through a group of mental and spiritual practices and disciplines.

The practice centre provides a space for you to connect with who you are and to bring yourself back home (your body). My body is the home of the mind. We are all seekers of life, trying to understand why are we here and what is our purpose. This journey that we seek to explore starts with self awareness of our internal and external environment

JUST BE is a space that allows you to connect with yourself through the different disciplines and practices that is provided at the studios. What differentiates a conscious centered being from a person who is not so conscious is simply the focus of their awareness. The practices that we teach brings awareness of our internal and external environments which makes us understand why we are living and being a certain way of life.

THE PROBLEM

1

Self Expression:

In a world that pressurises humanity to live up to a certain societal standards and certain life expectations; people struggle to express their true, authentic feelings to the world. This affects the mental health of individuals, intimidating people from all walks of life. Self expression and focusing on internal needs has never been as important in the era we live in. You need to know who we are, to be able to live truthfully outside.

2

Mental Health:

Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, suicide, burnout and job stress are common, affecting individuals, their families and coworkers, and the broader community. The objective is to reduce the stigma and discrimination that people with mental illness are often subjected too. Nearly 450 million people worldwide are currently living with a mental illness, yet nearly two thirds of people with a known mental illness never seek treatment.
