Meditation Teacher Training Program
Australia - On-Campus

Become a Meditation Teacher.

If you're seeking a career that combines personal growth, financial stability, and the chance to make a positive impact in the world, this is the professional training pathway for you. 

 We believe meditation is the most important healing modality available.
There are many different meditation styles and techniques to suit every person from all walks of life.
Meditation is easy and can be practised at any time and any place, with no equipment required.
Meditation is a fast and effective way to relieve stress.
Stress is a major cause of disease and illness.

Stress causes the immune system and many other bodily functions essential for good health, NOT to function properly. No amount of surgery, medicine or other healing programs can help a person fully recover from illness while they are trapped in the stress response.
Meditation allows the body to relax and repair.
