Matt Young is the Director of the Melbourne Meditation Centre. He established the centre because he wanted to make meditation easy and accessible. Matthew has spent over a decade studying meditation and mindfulness — and while he found it fascinating, he was also frustrated by the confusing, confused and even contradictory information he had to trawl through. Thankfully, Matthew eventually came across Eric Harrison from the Perth Meditation Centre. Eric’s books and courses were delightfully ... clear, and his down-to-earth approach and scientific rigor were a breath of fresh air. Matthew decided that he'd like to teach in a similar manner. Since 2004 Matthew has continued to explore and develop an approach to meditation that is suited to contemporary folk looking for practical ways to feel less stressed. He loves helping to debunk meditation myths and misconceptions — and to see the light-bulbs go off in people’s heads when they learn that they can meditate, despite their busy minds and schedules. Over the years Matthew has been involved in establishing a number of meditation groups and in organising events such as the Australian Meditation Conference, Music for Meditation and The Big Retreat. He is currently a board member at the Meditation Association of Australia and has guided meditations available on numerous apps. Although Matthew explored a wide variety of meditation techniques and traditions he doesn't subscribe to any one approach. He considers himself fortunate, however, to have met a number of mavericks in the meditation field; teachers who helped him to find the sweet spots amongst the mystery and misinformation.
