Our aim is to make meditation easier and accessible
to as many people as we can, helping combat an epidemic of
stress and poor mental health in the process
Yinshi was first conceived when founder, Leigh, found himself for the umpteenth time his office's 7th floor toilets, trying to meditate. He was there because that was the only quiet, private space in the building.
The gentleman in the cubicle next to him had other ideas though, and did everything in his power to stop him finding zen. After that he vowed to find ways to make meditation easier and more accessible for himself and others, so as many people as possible can experience the improved mental health it brings about.
The Yinshi Pod offers people a peaceful and private space in which to enjoy the full benefits of meditation.
The name Yinshi comes from the ancient East.
Yinshis were revered individuals who lived in simple huts in remote areas, to find inner enrichment and peace.
Away from money, social norms and the bustle of cities, we reconnect ourselves with deeper thoughts and we’re free to be more creative and at peace.
In the 4th century, a Chinese bureaucrat called Tao Yuanning who couldn’t escape his pressurised job in the city, wrote a poem which started with the line ‘I built my hut in the midst of people’.
We can (and often should) find the time to reconnect with ourselves, even if we don’t have the option of escaping the city.
Our home meditation kits and meditation pods aim to help people find this re-connection, and be calmer, happier people.
