She has since directed a non-profit organisation, trained as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and travelled around the world organising, undertaking, and facilitating personal development and leadership programmes.

What our students say…
I had been practising meditation regularly for 5 years and saw meditation teacher training as a logical next step – I thought the best way to learn is to learn to teach! I wanted to understand more about my meditation practice while also equipping me with the skills to share some of my learnings with others.
Centred Meditations Teacher Training is a great way to build the foundations behind your practice: Understand the broader context of meditation, why it works and how it is the bedrock of self-discovery and greater wellbeing. I enjoyed that the program is much broader than just learning how to teach. One of the program’s biggest benefits is learning what you need to know before you can teach! I loved that the program focussed on spending time on what matters most versus memorising particular traditions or ceremonies – wonderful in their own right but not that interesting for me to learn personally.
Any program is only as good as its instructors – Kevin, Nikki & Walter are an incredible team who genuinely care and are deeply passionate about their mission! They provide a brilliantly modern teaching approach to a universal technique – unbounded by any single philosophy or organisation. They are also extremely generous with their time – inside and outside of hours! No question is too big or small to answer. Kevin & Nikki provide wonderful perspectives from their journey as teachers – they are brilliant at translating many centuries of content and literature into digestible form! Walter is a living encyclopedia of knowledge and an incredible role-model! I feel like I have only touched the surface of what this man has to bring to the world and have already learnt so much.
Why would I recommend Centred Meditation’s Teacher Training program? Because the world needs more people meditating – and that needs more teachers! Kevin, Nikki and Walter are the best teachers you could hope your in the next part of your journey!
The Meditation Teacher Training Program immediately piqued my interest when it was first announced. At the time, I had been meditating for over two years and had completed the Centred Edge and Centred Life programs through Centred Meditation. I was very interested in developing my understanding of meditation even further, whilst continuing the growth journey I was already on with Nikki, Kevin and Walter. Knowing that I could then share this valuable meditation practice with the people around me if I wanted to was also a huge part of the appeal.
The program takes a bottom up approach where the first half is centred around your own growth and development and the second half around the technical side of teaching meditation. The program content is designed and delivered so incredibly well. It resulted in instant engagement with all the other attendees and the formation of strong bonds through the art of sharing stories. It was incredible watching everyone grow throughout this program!
The support, encouragement, wisdom and kindness offered by Nikki, Kevin & Walter was unwavering. To have three people living out their life purpose having only your best interest at heart is a huge platform from where to grow from. The wealth of knowledge they bestowed upon us was just amazing and their willingness to share their time and personal experiences made the content so relatable and interesting. I looked forward to creating time every week to savour my program notes.
All through the program I felt that I was actively developing and the content definitely stretched me at times, which made me develop even further. Once I started to see the benefits it was like uncovering a piece of my very own jigsaw puzzle!
I strongly recommend this program, for anyone serious about their meditation practice and ready for the next step either for their own personal journey or teaching aspirations
Coming into the Teacher Training Program, I did not know what to expect. I dived in head first and trusted Walter, Nikki and Kevin with my whole heart and soul. Little did I know that this program would change my life’s trajectory and awaken the essence of who I am as a person.
Walter, Nikki and Kevin created a safe space for us to embrace our vulnerabilities and bare the truth of who we truly are. They not only made us feel seen, heard, supported and guided throughout the entire program but also always communicated their words of encouragement from a loving space.
Healed people, heal people. If you are open and ready to heal your life and are committed to your growth, this is the program for you. It has profoundly changed how I view the world and allowed me to live my life from a greater level of awareness. It cracked my heart open to shed my old patterns and conditioning and it also allowed me to become the true expression of who I really am. I have never in my life felt as happy and alive as I do now! And this is coming from a person who felt that life had broken her heart over and over again, a person who was so lost in life and had nothing to look forward to. I strongly believe that If I can change, so can everyone!
I am so honoured to have been part of this program and to have met the amazing people who were in the group. This is the first time in my life that I feel that I am not alone, that I feel accepted and that I truly belong. I am not the same person and I cannot imagine living the way I did just three months back before the program started. A big thank you to Walter, Kevin, and Nikki for being part of my journey of becoming. And thank you for always holding space for us and always believing in our potential. I love you all three so much!
