September 2023: I currently have a full schedule and may not be able to immediately meet with new one-on-one students. Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org to introduce yourself and get on the waitlist. I expect to have openings shortly.
If we have already met, you can still use Calendly to book at time.
For meditators who want to commit to practising in a dedicated way and are looking for transformative benefits from the practice, getting personalised guidance is highly recommended. Whether your practice is going well or you are hitting some roadblocks, regular coaching sessions can really help to go deeper into the practice and to avoid potential pitfalls.
Speaking to a teacher one-on-one is a great way to learn about meditation in a way that suits your exact needs and experience. It can greatly accelerate your progress. It’s the most effective and valuable way to care for your practice.
I’ve personally found that speaking regularly to a teacher was the most important thing for the development of my practice. It helped to get feedback, to point out things I couldn’t see from my vantage point, to have accountability, and to have the support of someone who is looking out for you.
In the meditation world today it sometimes feels like there is too much information out there without clear guidelines for how this all relates to you. I aim to help clarify what is possible from meditation practice and to make sense of meditation and Dharma in the context of our rich, complex lives. I can also help you with learning more about refinement of technique, knowing when to change practices, and giving pointers on what to explore at various forks in the road.
My intention is to work collaboratively with students to help them achieve transformative change in the areas that are most important to them.
I’m currently offering a free discovery session so that we can get to know each other and see if working together is a good fit. After an initial meeting or two to get to know each other and identify areas that we can work on together, students often find it helpful to meet at regular intervals, such as weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.
I offer a tiered pricing model in an effort to provide 1:1 meditation instruction at a cost that is affordable to students and also allows me to teach sustainably. The Community rate is intended for those who would experience difficulty paying the Standard rate. For a 50-minute session:
- $90 AUD Community
- $120 AUD Standard
- $150 AUD Supporter
(halve each of these for 25-minute sessions)
I also offer a discounted coaching package as a way to commit to a period of time of dedicated practice. I currently offer 6-session packages. We will meet regularly, such as every one or two weeks, or at least once a month.
Committing to a set of sessions is a great a way to build accountability, support, and consistency in your practice. You could think about this as a ‘sprint’ to see what is possible in this time. It’s also a way to explore a particular area of practice, solidify a range of techniques, or to work through particular obstacles.
For six sessions:
- $500 AUD Community
- $600 AUD Standard
- $800 AUD Supporter
Please contact me to arrange a free discovery session where we can discuss how we might best work together and booking a coaching package.
If you are doing a retreat that you have organised yourself and would like some support, I’d be happy to guide you. My preferred format is to meet every two days for 15-30 minutes. We can also meet 1:1 prior to the retreat to work out a plan and after the retreat to integrate back into daily life.
I’m happy to offer this for dāna (generosity) so that you can pay what you feel is generous and sustainable, appropriate to your situation.
If you’d like to talk with me but the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch as I’m generally able to offer a discounted rate. There are also a number of free offerings available under classes and recordings.
When we organise a session I’ll send you a calendar invite with the Zoom link. Please make sure that the time is correct in your time zone as this calendar invite is the official time we’ve committed to. Please also see the cancellation policy.
If you have an Australian bank account, then the best method is bank transfer. I’ll send you my bank details when we meet.
