Tim is an intuitive and compassionate teacher and coach of meditation and mindfulness, specialising in supporting individuals and groups to connect with their inner calm and wisdom so they can bring this into their everyday life. Tim is a Diploma-qualified teacher of meditation with the Australian Centre for Meditation and Mindfulness (ACMM) and has written and coaches the ‘Deepening through Meditative Inquiry’ elective with ACMM. Tim also coaches student meditation teachers with ACMM and runs ... weekly community meditation groups based in self-inquiry. A passionate and dedicated teacher and coach, Tim cannot imagine doing anything else. He loves walking alongside student meditation teachers and sitting in the space of meditation with participants, sharing, creating and supporting people to connect within. During his one-on-one meditation coaching sessions, he loves assisting people to connect with meditation in a way that works for them. His clients have often tried different approaches and techniques in the past that have not resonated. Tim listens from presence and supports his clients with a tailored meditation. In his weekly group meditation sessions, Tim focuses on self-inquiry, inviting each participant to dive into and explore 'who they are'. Often called a 'subjective' or direct approach to meditation, Tim delivers it in a supportive compassionate way, holding a space for participants to turn inwards being present with what arises, then inquiring into and exploring their essential nature. Originally working in the corporate world for over 18 years, Tim needed to physically and mentally step away. After reading Eckhart Tolle’s words of ‘you are not your mind’, he started to explore more self-care and active practices and discovered life coaching and meditation. Tim wrote the book ‘The Doorway: From Burnout to Being’ and is a volunteer speaker for Soul Talks in Adelaide. He is a member of the Meditation Association of Australia (MA) and was recently part of the first MA Online Summit speaking about and guiding participants through self-inquiry meditation. Tim also runs one day self-inquiry meditation retreats. While you may one day see him living his dream of caravanning around Australia guiding pop-up meditation sessions on the road, for now you can find him in and around Adelaide. Tim looks forward to supporting you to bring meditation into your everyday life, to connect deeply with yourself and to find the wisdom that lies within. Read more
