Hello and welcome! I’m Laura, a Vedic meditation teacher here to support you in learning how to reduce stress, live from the heart and become more confident and capable in daily life. For a decade I have been practicing and studying within the Vedic wisdom tradition - a 5000 year old body of knowledge on how to live a full and expansive life. Over the years, my great teachers have taught me how to pass this transformative wisdom on and I’m now based in Melbourne sharing this in a very accessible, practical and relevant way. I encourage you to come and learn Vedic meditation with me and become part of our growing community – a community that is about belonging, nurturing wellbeing and living a meaningful life.
I look forward to meeting you!

But that doesn't mean I wasn't becoming a mother. Because in my 20's I got to work raising my SELF. My own parents did a great job getting me to independence, but there was still a lot of deepening of my sense of self, unlearning, letting go and refining to be done.

This is a post inspired by a friend who I taught Vedic meditation to last year. Last week, he wrote a Facebook post that said he had been meditating for 307 days. Someone then commented saying, "Tell us what changes you've noticed after so much meditation?" This is what he said…
Learn to meditate = Give a family of 4 in need food on their table for 2 weeks! When you learn Vedic meditation with me, you are not only giving yourself the best gift you could possibly receive in this life…
Giving is at the heart of what we do with our meditation community. It brings the most joy and is the motivator for all our offerings. The Sanskrit word for this is ‘seva’ which is where we get our English word ‘service’. Seva is about giving what you have, sharing your self and uplifting those around you in need…
If you're looking for conscious Christmas gifts this year for friends and family (or possibly yourself?) we have put together some little gift packages ranging from $25-$100 with lots of meditation/Ayurveda goodies.

Giving is at the heart of what we do, and as part of learning to meditate with Laura, you are also supporting local Australian not-for-profits so they can continue to give to those in need. The three not-for-profits we work with are Oz Harvest, A Sound Life and the Refugee Council of Australia. When you learn Vedic meditation you can choose to feed a family of 4 in need for 2 weeks, gift 3 people living with disabilities music, yoga and meditation sessions, or help provide research, education and advocacy for refugees in Australia.
