Robin Jung - Meditation Instructor, Sydney Meditation / Brisbane Meditation
Robin, is originally from South Korea, has been involved with guiding #meditation and leading self-development workshops for the past 17 years, in various places including South Korea, Singapore, UK, New Zealand and now in Australia.
Having been a professional dancer, studying psychology at university and doing things that made her happy has helped her enjoy her life in many ways but it didn’t quite provide the solution to free the mind and that’s why she started meditation. After finding the answer to “who am I?”, the reason and #purpose of our existence and the unconditional happiness that everyone strives for, she is happy to dedicate her life to helping others to find the same freedom and #happiness.
Caroline Choi- Financial Controller / Sydney Meditation
Caroline, is a Financial Controller who studied Accounting and Law at the University of New South Wales. She is a volunteer at Sydney meditation after having found unconditional happiness and purpose through this meditation. Caroline lived most of her life trying to find happiness and satisfaction through "success". She realised that this was ultimately only to fulfil her own #pride and #insecurities, which were never ending.
Rather than bring her happiness, this became a heavier #burden as she achieved more "success", but still left her empty with many questions about life. Through the meditation she learnt to let go of her pride and insecurities. This then led her to find true success, happiness and purpose. She now #dedicates her time outside of work to volunteer at Sydney Mediation so others can become free from their burdens and find the same #unconditional happiness she has.
Steven Trpenov -Architect, / Perth Meditation
Steven grew up in a healthy, supportive and incredibly loving family, but despite all of this, he still could not find any happiness in his life. He often distracted himself with many bad habits like #abusing food, #substances and video #games. Even after being accepted into Architecture at University, the happiness was always #fleeting. However, after starting this meditation, he realized that all people were trapped inside their minds, and this itself was the cause of every problem in the world, and the #solution to live together forever was to be free from that self imposed prison. The method is to discard our human mind. Now he is committed to the advancement of mental health in Australia by volunteering for Perth Meditation, with a particular #passion for helping #teenagers and children.
David Clouston- Town Planner / Auckland Meditation
David, a consultant planner who studied at the University of Auckland. He is a volunteer at Auckland Meditation who has found peace practicing this meditation.
After becoming free from sleeping pills, he says it was so #liberating to find a study that actually works. The freedom he has experienced in this meditation is like nothing else and has helped in so many ways: composing music, work and family life. The meditation has become a way to see himself and live in the world.
Practicing this meditation for 8 years, he volunteers his time as a meditation guide so people can find their true mind and truly live. An amazing method to eliminate stress and find truth within, he says this study is the way to peace and freedom.
Liz Ellis - Lawyer / Mandurah Meditation
Liz is a lawyer, a single mum of 2 boys, and a volunteer at Mandurah Meditation. After living most of her life trying to achieve the unattainable ideal of happiness – by ticking all the proverbial “boxes” – she became depressed, anxious, and completely miserable.
Liz found herself asking “I have everything, so why am I unhappy?”
When she started meditating, Liz realised that her expectations were in fact the cause of her misery. When those expectations disappeared – whether they be expectations of herself, other people, or the world – there was wisdom and peace. She found that the World is already perfect – it was her mind that needed to change.
Liz is now passionate about helping others to find inner peace through meditation; she hopes people can follow the method to get rid of those crippling standards and expectations, and coexist with the World, just as it is.
