Presenting the revolutionary ENSO Pearl timepiece
The Perfect Way to Balance Your Body – Freeing Your Mind!
“I am using mine to time my yoga practice and it is the most useful yoga/meditation timepiece I’ve ever come across”
Marriage of Zen philosophy and Digital Technology
Yoga and meditation practitioners around the world are waking up to the joy of the ENSO Pearl clock.
Adaptable as it is sophisticated, it has been designed by practitioners for practitioners who want to maximize the enjoyment and benefits of a yoga or meditation experience in their own home, at the yoga studio – or at the beach if they prefer!
Do I have to practice yoga or meditation to enjoy the benefits of the ENSO Pearl?
Absolutely not! This clock makes a wonderful desk or alarm clock that can be enjoyed by anyone who’d rather not listen to the shrieking sounds of regular alarm clocks and the usual beeping timers.
“When I’m not meditating, the ENSO is elegant enough to be used as a desk clock on my table. The size is very suitable for travel – The clock face is slightly larger than the top of a tea cup, and there is a travel pouch included with the clock. I’ve seen other meditation clocks – haven’t tried them; they look a little bulkier.”
How can this clock help my yoga/meditation practice?
One of the great benefits of attending a yoga or meditation class is the structure it offers. Translating this structure into a daily routine is often difficult for students who, despite the best intention in the world, just can’t seem to find the time or discipline to enjoy the benefits of daily practice.
The ENSO Pearl supports daily yoga/meditation practice for people at all levels. With its unique interval timing, it allows you to create up to 50 sequential timers – this means that you can time each of your poses to best serve your needs. You can also ensure that the right and left sides of your body receive equal attention, resulting in better alignment and more balance to your body.
As you move through your poses, the ENSO Pearl offers a range of soothing chimes of Tibetan or Japanese singing bowls using the highest quality production that softly indicate the completion of a time. This means you can keep your awareness within your body without worrying about an alarm startling you out of your meditative state.
“Conventional stopwatches and alarms just don’t cut it. They let out a loud beeping noise that startles me out of my meditative state (or I end up worrying about when they’ll beep). On the contrary, the ENSO uses soothing chimes that sound like actual Japanese and Tibetan rice bowls. Instead of a rude awakening, these gently bring your awareness back to the world around you.”
With the ENSO Pearl, the ENSO brushstroke is gradually brushed on-screen as time progresses. A quick glance at the ENSO shows the relative amount of time that has elapsed, allowing a softness and openness in both the body and mind.
“My favourite function of this clock is the way it displays time elapsed or remaining by drawing a ring along the display, instead of counting down the numerical indication of minutes left.” Previously I meditated with a wall clock, opening my eyes to glance at the clock when the time felt ‘right’. I’ve found the ENSO’s ring to be a great help with my meditation – when I occasionally open my eyes to glance at the clock, I find myself undistracted.”
Place the ENSO Pearl flat on the floor in front of you for use during seated meditation or open the elegant hinged stand for a more distant view. Each ENSO Pearl comes with a soft pouch carry case which provides an integrated cleaning cloth that both protects and polishes.
Japanese ENSO = circle, symbolizing enlightenment, elegance and the universe. Traditionally, the ENSO is painted with a single clockwise brushstroke.
