THE BENEFITS OF EFFORTLESS MEDITATION
THE CENTRED MEDITATION STORY
Nikki is the Co-Founder of Centred Meditation. It was while studying Psychology at University when she experienced first hand the visceral effects of stress on her mind and body: constant anxiety, muscle spasms, digestive issues and the list goes on. She stumbled upon Effortless Meditation online and thought it sounded too good to be true! After learning the technique in 2010 she was pleasantly shocked by its immediate effects on all aspects of her life.
Nikki has since spent time in India learning from different meditation masters and Gurus, directed a non-profit organisation, trained as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and travelled around the world organising, undertaking, and facilitating personal development and leadership programmes.
Nikki is one of the lead instructors of our Teacher Training Courses, Retreats, and Meditation Programs. Her life’s purpose is to empower people to be inspired by their own true greatness and freed up to share it with the world.
Kevin is the Co-Founder and Chief Meditation Officer at Centred Meditation. He reluctantly came to meditation out of desperation to rid himself of the detrimental effects of stress. Years down the track of cumulative benefits, he now dedicates his life to making this untapped resource more accessible to everyone.
Kevin has led and taught thousands of people to meditate through his world-first drop-in meditation studio, Corporate Program Hub and Inner Growth Retreats. He has a unique way of distilling complex intellectual topics into simple practical tools for his students. Kevin’s purpose is to raise the bar of love and affinity and decrease the level of suffering in the world.
NIKKI & KEVIN
A year later we quit our jobs and headed to the region where meditation originated: South Asia. It was a wild journey! From meditating in caves, to living in Ashrams, going on silent retreats, and having teachings with the Dalai Lama and other Gurus, Swamis and Rishis. At some point we realised that whilst all the spiritual knowledge and religious doctrine were fascinating and uber valuable – they simply weren’t required for the meditation itself to work. As modern scientific research dictates, meditation is a simple mental technique that when practiced regularly, has immense physical and psychological benefit to one’s health and wellbeing.
We mused how great it would be if more people like us could access the profound effects that meditation has to offer without the usual misconceptions and barriers that get in the way. Two years later, Centred Meditation was born in June 2015. Since our inception, we’ve hosted thousands of people in our urban sanctuary and are continually pleased by the quick and powerful effects that our Effortless Meditation technique has in their lives.
The Centred Meditation NESA accredited workshop D.E.A.B was an unmissable experience. Not only did I gain new insights into the psychological impacts of stress on teenagers, but I also gained an appreciation of breath as a tool to help alleviate anxiety. Since the workshop ended, I have utilised the DEAB technique in many classes, establishing a space to stop for a minute and breathe. This worked especially well prior to HSC assessments and before speaking activities in class.
The course gave me a calming way to resettle students during distracted afternoon lessons. I also found the discussions between teachers empowering.
Drop everything and get yourself to a seminar.
This session was a powerful experience which I have been able to transfer successfully into my classes. I also loved the collegiality and the sharing of ideas about how to implement this great initiative.
Such a simple strategy yet so incredibly powerful and effective.
The DEAB workshop reminded me of the importance to breathe regularly. The facilitator was passionate about the technique, giving me confidence to utilise it within my classes.
