When you stop to think about it, you realise that we spend the majority of our waking hours either reminiscing about past experiences or ruminating about future events. Both of which are detrimental for our wellbeing. Why? Because we can’t change the past, so reliving it over and over only serves to further frustrate and disappoint us. And as for the future? More often than not, the intricate narratives we concoct in our minds never eventuate in the way we dreaded they might. The bottom line is, we propagate our own suffering each time we relive the past or ruminate about the future. Life is challenging enough as it is, so it makes no sense that we make it worse for ourselves by enduring redundant unnecessary upset! The solution? ‘Don’t sweat the small stuff’. How? By staying in the present moment. This is obviously easier said than done! The good news is that the tool to remain in the present moment is awareness, and we can literally cultivate awareness by strengthening certain neural pathways in the brain using techniques such as meditation. So if you are reading this, then you are clearly on the right path! And better still, mastering this awareness to remain in the present will help lead us to the happily ever after we are all searching for…so whatever you do, keep meditating!

Love everything about Centred Meditation! The space is clean and comforting with oil diffusers, a water fountain, blankets and tea - it's the perfect environment to get the most out of your session. I've already felt the benefits of meditation after 5 sessions :) Would recommend Centred Meditation to everyone, whether you've never meditated before or are looking to deepen your practice.

I can’t recommend the sessions and the team at Centred Meditation enough. I have tried various different meditations in person and online over the years but never found one that I stuck to. Centred Meditation works for me for a variety of reasons but the main ones being the simplicity of the sessions themselves so that anyone can learn to meditate, the caring nature of Nikki, Kevin and the rest of the team and the convenience of being able to walk in to a super comfortable and friendly studio in the middle of the CBD at convenient times throughout the day. The results I feel from the sessions are definitely noticeable and I find myself feeling calmer, happier and generally with less ‘brain fog’ on a daily basis

I was reluctant to come here because I had tried doing guided meditations through YouTube but could never get into it. It was from a recommendation from a healthcare professional so I thought I would try it out given they have the good intro deal. I have been every day for the past 5 days during my lunch break and I’m a complete convert. It’s so easy and close to work and no fuss. The classes start on time and finish on time and you don’t have to talk to anyone if you don’t want to which means it is really minimal effort wise. I’ve found the teachers very calming and helpful and will definitely be back!

I've just recently discovered Centred Meditation and I'm so pleased that I did! I've been looking for some way to try to relax and bring calm into my day/life, I don't have time to do classes at night and I can't often spare an hour in my work day so these classes are perfect for me. After my half hour meditation session at lunchtime I feel more positive and calm facing the second half of the day and I feel it's definitely of huge benefit to me. I hope to continue going to the classes 3 times per week as I feel it will be even more beneficial the more I attend.

Love the peacefulness of this venue and the clear and calm teachers. A great way to escape from the chaos of the office and find tranquility during the day.
