Melbourne Meditation Centre: Since 2004

About Us

“The place to go for expert, user-friendly meditation instruction.”

Melbourne's Meditation Specialists

Established in 2005, we’ve taught over 20,000 people to meditate and introduced countless others to meditation and mindfulness through our popular introductory sessions — held at workplaces, schools, government departments and organisations of all kinds.

We’re your go-to place for practical, down-to-earth, science-backed techniques that suit the needs of busy people with full lives.

In a nutshell, we teach people how to relax their bodies and calm their minds — anywhere, and at any time — so that they can feel calmer, sleep better, and ultimately lead happier and more fulfilling lives.

Why Choose Us?

“Practical, accessible, and enjoyable for all.”

Meditations you can do anywhere and at any time.

No need to make your mind blank.

No uncomfortable postures.

Non-religious and jargon-free.

Meditation is sometimes taught in ways that don’t take into account the realities of 21st living.

You might be expected to meditate every day, and to dedicate long periods of time to practice.

Or you might be asked to do things that are impossible for you; like keeping your mind completely blank, or sitting cross-legged.

These traditional requirements can make meditation very difficult.

In contrast, we base our teaching on science and psychology.

Our instructions are clear, practical and realistic.

We also teach you how to work with your thoughts and emotions, instead of simply trying to block them out (which never works).

And we teach practices that you can integrate into your day, while engaged in regular activities; such as walking, driving, waiting or working out.

Getting Started Guide.

Getting Started with Meditation & Mindfulness by Matthew Young.

“I just downloaded your ebook and it’s a cracker! So easy to read, understand, and put into practice. I have been meditating for years, but I wish I had this guide when I started!

You provide such a refreshing take on the practice  — a welcome respite from some of the convoluted offerings out there.”
