"Tasmania could be Australia's meditation state"
Article in The Examiner

On 30 January 2017, The Hillwood Road Meditation Skills Centre was launched to leaders of the community at a special function at the centre. Sarah Courtney MP (Lib) opened the event on behalf of the Premier. Stephanie Legg England gave a presentation about the potential role of the meditation centre for health, community and tourism in North East Tasmania. The event was attended by Ross Hart MP (Labour), Andrea Dawkins MP (Greens), Bridget Archer (Mayor of George Town) and representatives of a variety of organisations including Carers Tasmania, Lifeline, Launceston City Council, George Town Council and the George Town Chamber of Commerce.
On 31 March 2016 George Town Council gave planning permission for the Hillwood Road Meditation Skills Centre to be developed at 362 Hillwood Road, Hillwood, Tasmania, on the site which used to be the Southern Cross Country coat factory. The building and carparking were modified to include access for people with disabilites, and renovated to make a beautiful, comfortable venue.
The building was once an apple shed belonging to one of Hillwood’s many orchards. Its rustic roots can still be seen in the original weatherboards and beams. The interior has now been decorated with unique artwork including a three metre high apple mandala in the main hall.
Just drop in when you need some peace and quiet! There are plenty of comfy chairs, cushions and throw rugs. Help yourself to tea and coffee. There are books and posters to read or you can just gaze out a window or lie down on a couch.
You can arrange to get some counselling or relaxation therapy, or some personal tuition in meditation.
If you want to join a class or group, we will recommend one which suits you, or take your details and let you know as soon as we are running the type of meeting you would like.
We teach meditation for inner peace, stress management and spiritual expression. We can also teach concentration skills, mindfulness and self-awareness, which are all important for your quality of life. We can teach you how to fit meditation into a busy lifestyle and how to choose a method which works for you.
For your community
Our groups help people make friends and connect with others in the peace of meditation.
People often turn to meditation when they are going through a change in life or a stressful period. New members are often lonely, sensitive and looking for meaning. Meditation groups play an important role in supporting people at these vulnerable times.
Meditation is also a great way to bring together people from different backgrounds. It is used by people of many different religions and atheists as well.
For your work group
Please talk to us about having a seminar or workshop for your staff. We can design a program which is tailor-made for your organisation.
By teaching meditation and self-management, we help organisations improve mental health among their staff.
We have a very practical way of talking about people’s deepest emotional and spiritual needs and this translates easily into the workplace.
