Our Learn to Meditate course is a practical course in which you can learn simple, effective techniques for bringing calm and balance into your everyday activities. With the skill of meditation you can learn to let go of busy mental chatter, deal better with worry and anxiety, sleep better and generally enjoy life more.
In this course a wide range of meditations are taught so that you find the techniques which work for you. We will also introduce you to short ‘spot’ mindfulness meditations which only take a moment to be of use – you can use them anywhere, anytime. They are great for restoring calm in the heat of the moment, bringing you ‘back to your senses’.
You will also be guided through longer meditations using the breath, visualisation, movement and sound. These will enable you to experience deeper states of calm and clarity.
Along with the guided meditations, each class includes gentle loosening and stretching exercises, a short discussion explaining an aspect of meditation (e.g. how it works, different types, deeper experiences, working with emotions etc.) and many opportunities to ask questions.
The course builds on what you learn from week to week in a relaxed, informal environment. There are usually about 10–15 students in each class. Find out more on our Frequently Asked Questions page or come along to one of our FREE Come and Try sessions.

The area of mindfulness training within Psychology is currently of great interest in academic and clinical circles. Having attended several courses of this nature in Adelaide, I believe that Lifeflow are providing one of the best sources of training in this area. Hilary Stein, B.A. Hons, M.Psych (Clin) M.A.P.S.

Psychologists can claim CPD points for attending Lifeflow courses and retreats
Because so many psychologists were attending our courses we were asked to seek endorsement with the Australian Psychological Society. The APS replied. “APS Members can accrue CPD points by participating in CPD activities they determine to be relevant to their individual professional skills, learning plans and goals. These do not need to be endorsed by the APS”.
