Meditation That Makes Sense - with 30 years experience, Roger brings meditation to life.

Methodology

Moving into meditation in easy stages, I combine spoken guided sessions with background information about how meditation works in the mind and body, and why it is effective.
I acknowledge that beginning meditation can be difficult in different ways for each of us - so I consult closely, and provide strategies to make meditation easy and accessible for all.

Background

Trained over twenty years by enlightened teachers in Thailand, Sri Lanka and Burma, I am the author of two books on practicing meditation, and have been training people to meditate for 25 years. My goal is to cut away all the myths and new-age hype around meditation, to make it a practical part of life - easily understandable, effective and accessible to all.

Roger's CV

1990-1996
Trained in Vipassana meditation methods with Acharn Thawee Baladhammo at Sorn Thawee Meditation Centre, Chacheongsao, Thailand.

Training involved around 2 months per year of silent retreat, practicing a minimum of 10 hours a day – walking meditation and sitting meditation, with the emphasis on Burmese Method Vipassana – principal method being Mental Noting and Mindfulness training. Acharn Thawee died in 1996.

1994 - present
Set up Practical Meditation & Counselling in St Kilda, Melbourne.

My intention in teaching was to strip away the misinformation that has traditionally surrounded meditation, to bring it into peoples life as the practical skill that it is.

Since then I have taught individual clients, seminars, as well as corporate groups all over Australia, in Bali, America, and in Thailand.

1997 – 1999
Continued training with Luang Pu Sangvahn at Wat Tungsamakheedam, Suphanburi Thailand.

During this time I extended my knowledge of the more esoteric aspects of Vipassana meditation that Luang Pu Sangvahn specialized in, including Contemplation of Body Parts and intensive Mindfulness Training.

1998 – 2005
Continued training with Acharn Tippakorn at Ban Sawang Jai Meditation Centre, Kao Yai National Park, Thailand

During this time I practised free form Vipassana and mindfulness under Acharn Tippakorn’s guidance

2007 - 2008
Continued annual training with the Venerable Permasiri at Kanduboda Meditation Centre, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Resumed Vipassana training, emphasising applied mindfulness.
