Mental Health Awareness for Meditation Teachers

Many people turn to meditation when they’re in crisis. One in five Australians will experience a mental illness at some time in their lives and, in certain circumstances, meditation practice can exacerbate mental illness.

In this workshop, you can learn how to:

  • recognise when students or clients present with a mental illness, and whether or not this is meditation-contraindicated
  • adapt your meditation teaching methods to meet these circumstances
  • manage the impact on any other students in the class, and make an informed decision on whether or not to refer students/clients to mental health professionals.

 

This retreat is organised by Meditation Australia. MEDITATION ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA is the national peak body representing meditation and meditation teachers. Formed in 2008, MA is a nationally registered not-for-profit association managed by a voluntary Board of meditation teachers from diverse backgrounds and an Executive Officer. MA promotes meditation as an integral part of life.
