Lisa is the founder and course author at the Australian Centre for Meditation and Mindfulness (ACMM) which provides meditation teacher training and short courses.
Lisa started facilitating meditation groups 15 years ago and she loves sharing this inspirational healing tool with others.
From her own meditation teaching experience, Lisa developed a unique technique for guiding meditation. Members of the group accelerated their personal growth quickly and long running members of the group asked her ... to teach them her technique so that they could start teaching. This was the beginning of her meditation teacher training course, and it has since been developed and expanded to include many more techniques and teachings.
The courses taught at ACMM have evolved organically through her own curiosity and need. Lisa has gone through a deeply holistic, personal and professional research process in creating both the core meditation teacher training and the electives, as well as being mentored by teachers such as Alannah Dore and Ken and Elizabeth Mellor.
ACMM is a heart-centred holistic environment for students seeking a deep experiential learning experience with compassionate teachers. It attracts a broad range of students and supports them in deepening their own personal practice, assists in supporting a career change into meditation and mindfulness, or adding these modalities into an existing wellness business.
Meditation has been a part of Lisa’s life since she was 16. She turned to meditation during her final year of high school and later returned to it in a more committed way to help her through very tough times. Meditation has allowed Lisa to experience herself as a wiser and more expanded person by removing herself from the limitations of her current thinking, allowed new solutions and helped to relieve stress.
Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Melbourne University and has a Diploma in Holistic Living Counselling, Advanced Certificate in Counselling Children Holistically and a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment. She is also a Reiki Practitioner.
She is also the Treasurer of Meditation Australia and has been a Board Member for a number of years, enjoying this role and the peer connections that have blossomed.
Lisa knows that taking time for yourself is the greatest gift that you can give yourself on a daily basis. Mediation can become a fundamental practice that brings health, wellbeing and support to you for the rest of your life, like a trusted friend. The benefits flow in all directions of your life and those you come into contact with.
