Kynan Tan is a meditation teacher who is interested in helping students to achieve their meditation goals, whatever they may be. He takes a collaborative and student-centred approach to exploring the depths of what is possible through the many dimensions of practice. Kynan believes that meditation has enormous potential for creating positive change and opening up space for new ways of relating to experience.
Kynan has experience across a range of meditative and introspective traditions and techniques. He brings his experience as an artist, musician, and programmer into his understanding and sharing of Dharma teachings in a way that is clear, practical, and creative. Kynan is authorised to teach by Dr. Tucker Peck, a clinical psychologist and meditation teacher.

Here’s an overview of current teaching offerings:
- If you have an established practice and would like tailored support, I offer one-on-one personalised coaching for your meditation practice.
- If you’d like to spend time in dedicated practice, I offer in-person retreats in Australia and the Day of Practice every two months.
- For cohort classes, I co-teach the Deepening Meditation Practice Course with Upasaka Upali that runs twice a year, starting in January and July.
- I also run cohorts of Sit Down and Practice 3-4 times per year, available in different time zones.
- For a self-paced online course, you can check out the online course version of Sit Down and Practice.
- If you’d like to join the community and want to meet up for a regular class, see the weekly Meditation Community Drop-in Class, or if you’re in the US (or in Australia but free during the day) you can join Pragmatic Dharma Club hosted by the San Francisco Dharma Collective.
- If you are just looking for some resources to get started straight away for free, I have a number of recordings of guided meditations available on the Resources page. I’ve also put a lot of my writings and guided meditation recordings on the Sit Down and Practice Resource Hub.
I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work, the Gadigal and Wangal of the Eora Nation. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, their culture and continued connection to land and community.
