Meditation is the Lifestyle Medicine of the 21st century and its broad health benefits have been proven extensively by Western science. People who suffer with stress, anxiety, pain, depression and ill health find powerful relief through meditation.  The inflammatory response is reduced, the immune response is heightened, and mindfulness meditation has been shown to be closely on par with antidepressants for preventing major relapse of depression.

Meditation is a highly rewarding and life changing practice. For many who study and practice the art of meditation it becomes a daily practice that nurtures them throughout their whole lives. Meditation offers benefits of mind shaped on the values of compassion, mindfulness and contentment.

"The teachers in this course both have many years of experience and knowledge. This can be very comforting, helping to remove the ‘ mystery ‘ from the practice itself. They both offer teachings that are applicable in our daily lives, and given the time, easily applied. For those new to meditation, or those who are familiar, this course is an education that promotes study easily digested. The course manuals are highly informative, providing knowledge from a scientific and yogic perspective. Zen meditation and other forms of meditation are also taught. These varied teachings provide the student with confidence to practice and perhaps teach. The audios are easily understood, the listeners enabling themselves to feel a ‘ part of the class’. Encouraging one to listen, encouraging one to learn." - Deb

"Thank you for the beautiful mediation course. You provided me with the information, motivation and the tools I needed to engrave mediation into my life. I don’t come from a medical background but found the integration from both the traditional methods with the modern day science finding very helpful to make it so very relevant for today. Beautiful teachers in a beautiful surrounding, I would highly recommend it to everyone." - Joyce

"I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the meditation module. It was amazing to share time and space with teachers who are so passionate and knowledgeable about their fields. I really enjoyed the course material - delving into the sutras a little deeper, and the western science side of mindfulness meditation. An amazing course - I will be back for more!" - Jaime

"I have enjoyed my learning through [this course] immensely. The amount of information and knowledge that all teachers have shared has been greatly appreciated. The required readings, class discussions and resources referred to have opened my mind to soooo much knowledge. Have loved it and am sure will continue to do so in the future. Separate to that, the support provided has been excellent. Thank YOU!" - Yolanda
