We do this by making mindfulness as accessible as possible for everyday Australians from all walks of life. We provide practical, non-religious courses with a strong focus on mental and emotional well-being. Our courses also emphasise self-compassion, self-acceptance and self-forgiveness.

Keeping it Real, Accessible and Useful

Mindfulness and meditation can only be truly valuable if they have a positive impact on our daily lives. That’s why in all Mindfulness Works courses and workshops, we focus on helping you apply the principles and practices to your everyday interactions, relationships, and life situations. By doing this, you can “road test” the effectiveness of mindfulness and meditation in your own life and become more self-reliant in your understanding of how they work.

If there is ever a disagreement between what the teacher says and your own experience, we encourage you to trust your own experience and insights.

Principles of Mindfulness Works mindfulness and meditation training

  • All mindfulness and meditation instructions are non-religious.
  • Emphasis is placed on trusting your own experience and all teachings are grounded in your own experience.
  • The most important teacher is yourself.
  • Training environments are kept safe.
  • Anyone is free to ask questions at any time.
  • Mindfulness and meditation are restorative practices more than remedial (they restore us to our natural feelings of ok-ness and ease rather than ‘fix’ something that is wrong).
  • All formal teachers and facilitators have regular mindfulness and meditation practices.
  • Mindfulness must be actually practised to be useful (rather than just talked about).
  • All courses and retreats come with a money-back guarantee.

Learn From The Best

All Mindfulness Works teachers have received Mindfulness Works teacher training. They come from a diverse range of backgrounds and all have an in-depth, experiential understanding of mindfulness. All Mindfulness Works teachers emphasise the importance of you learning to trust your own ‘inner teacher’.

Our teachers will never treat you as a problem to be fixed, but rather encourage you to tap into your innate sense of wholeness and self-acceptance. They recognise that you are already a complete and capable human being, and their role is to support you in discovering and cultivating your own mindfulness practices.
