We need more meditation teachers
Australian statistics show at least one in three people are affected by stress. Meditation and mindfulness reduce fear, promote calmness and enhance personal happiness.
In short, being mindful can bring joy back into our lives.
Meditation also aids attention, increases feelings of well being, supports calmness, enhances intuition, supports goal achievement and feelings of inner peace. It changes the structure of our brains and improves our response to stress.
Mindfulness is becoming increasingly popular in the corporate world, and some of our graduates are now teaching it in their workplace.
Is there a market for meditation classes?
Some of our graduates now conduct meditation classes in aged care facilities, schools, one is working in prison. We have trained many yoga teachers, psychologists, and counsellors.
We have also trained a few well-known bloggers who inspire meditating, mindfulness and, of course, many everyday people who want to lead groups or conduct meditation classes.
Meditation classes are one of the most in-demand services used in every walk of life from aged care to corporations.

A message from the Course Teacher
Meditation doesn’t just ease stress, it changes lives, and I want to encourage more people to make it part of their daily lives.
When my five-year-old son died, in 1981, I started doing personal development courses, looking for a way to get through the pain, and every class I did included meditation. Meditating took me to a place of peace that enabled me to emerge from that horrific time in my life a better person.
As I began teaching courses myself in 1989, even though my first course was on attitudes to money, I always included a class on meditating.
I distilled years of my working experience in practising and teaching meditation, as well as in running a successful life coaching business into this accredited training for meditation teachers.
Now I’d like to invite you to join me in this course and don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions. Looking forward to meeting you,
ANNE HARTLEY – CEO, Head Trainer and founder of Hart Life Coaching
I have been a very successful Clinical Psychologist, Health and Wellbeing practitioner for 33 years… from working in the Psych Department at Prince of Wales Hospital to Managing Tasmania’s Mental Health. So, I was very fussy when I decided to study Mindfulness and Meditation, for its Mind, Body and Soul benefits (such are CBT practice therapeutic interventions). I researched a great deal before settling on Hart Life Coaching as my College and I was not disappointed. In sum, this course and this College are excellent to study with, and I support their ongoing success. Thank you, Anne, for my wonderful learning journey.
Katherine Winter, Psychologist
I have recently completed the Meditation teachers Course. I enjoyed learning about the different ways to meditate and the long-term benefits that it has on our health. Since completing the course, I find myself teaching others what I have learnt through conversation. I highly recommend this course for those who want to learn more about understanding your feelings, where stress comes from, how to eliminate conflict within yourself, and ultimately how to be a better, healthier you and to do the same for others. I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Meditation Certificate offered by Hart Life Coaching. The content was thought-provoking and covered a broad range of subjects. Additionally, the resources provided were significant and useful, especially when conducting sessions. Thanks, Anne I loved the course & the way in which it is delivered.
After genuinely believing in the benefits of practising meditating & mindfulness daily as my routine & wanting to expand this knowledge to teach, the Hart Life Coaching Meditation Teacher Training offered me everything that I was seeking in a course. The training was clear, precise and easy to follow. A realm of expanded research & knowledge to be learnt, substance & depth to be gained, teamed with the support from Anne, made for a great training combination to easily enable me to complete my Meditation Teacher Training.
Thanks so much for your guidance and advice on the questions I asked. I have loved the course and feel I have learnt so much throught. More importantly, I improved my meditating practice and life balance. Now I am looking forward to helping others in the area of mindfulness and meditation. As I currently teach at a prison, it looks like I might have the opportunity in coming months to teach some Mindfulness and Meditation courses to prisoners.
