I’m very excited to announce that I will be teaching this 3-hour introductory workshop at The School of Life in Melbourne, on April 20, during a visit back to Australia!
We live busy, distracted and highly connected lives. For many of us, it’s difficult to find time for calm and reflection outside of work, let alone during the working day.
How do we stay productive, creative, and calm in the face of never-ending ‘to do’ lists, flooding inboxes, the increasing demands of others and ‘knock off’ hours that run long into the night? While there are great advantages to being connected 24/7, it can cause stress and exhaustion to the detriment of our health and wellbeing.
This class is designed for people who are curious about mindfulness, meditation, and the benefits of bringing both into everyday working life. You will be introduced to mindfulness and meditation as a practice and the ideas that underpin it. This class explores how pausing to connect with our present moment can cultivate the equanimity needed to get the best from a hectic working life.

About Megan Spencer
Having spent much of her working life in the hectic and demanding world of making media, Megan’s interest in slowing down and hitting the pause button came about after a work-related health issue, caused by sustained stress. Since 2009 she has studied and practiced Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation MBSM, first learning it at The Gawler Foundation Yarra Valley Living Centre in Victoria, Australia.
Relocating to Berlin in 2015, there Megan co-presented the two-day ‘Deep Storytelling: Creating A Culture Of Connection‘ workshop, teaching empathy in storytelling and ‘Meditation for Creativity’.
Regularly attending mindfulness meditation retreats is part of her ongoing professional development, with Mindful Self-Compassion of particular interest to her as a teacher. In February she travelled to Manchester to participate in the ‘Mindful Compassion As A Health Care Intervention’ course at Breathworks, UK, and in April-May 2016 she will undertake further MBSM Teacher studies.
