Meditation at School

Whether you’re a teacher or a student, schools can be either places of learning, camaraderie and development, or of frustration, alienation and stress, and sometimes all of the above in one day. All of us learn many valuable skills at school, but very few of us are lucky enough to receive formal instruction on how to manage our attention, emotions and stress. These, of course, are essential life skills, and meditation is a means of developing them.

Develop concentration.

Calm your emotions


Manage (exam) stress

Enhance confidence and self-esteem

In a world of sensory overload and school, family and internal pressures, kids need meditation as much as adults. Meditation helps kids develop focus, regulate their own emotions and learn how to pay attention inside and out. It gives them a sense of center and, therefore, resilience.

School programs facilitated by the Melbourne Meditation Centre aim to give participants (students or teachers) practical experience in a range of simple to learn and easy to perform techniques, as well as the essential background information and understanding required to make best use of these skills.

The techniques are non-religious, can be done at any time and in any place, and don’t require any special props. We will introduce you to techniques that can be used in all kinds of situations (e.g. for managing pre-exam anxiety), techniques which can be effective within 20 to 90 seconds, and also to longer ‘formal’ meditations which can be used to recover from chronic physical, mental or emotional stresses.

We can tailor our programs to match your goals, budget and time frames.
