About the teacher
Megan Spencer is a trained mindfulness meditation teacher with a passion for self-care, creativity and empathy. She is also an experienced media arts professional, with over three decades working as a film critic and maker, radio and podcast producer, a writer and more – most of it freelance. (See Megan’s full creative bio here).
Having spent much of her working life in the hectic world of making media, Megan’s path toward slowing down and hitting the pause button came after a work-related health issue in 2009, caused by sustained stress.
She has been practicing meditation ever since and teaching it since 2015, first learning Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation at The Gawler Foundation in Australia.
Her subsequent and numerous mindfulness studies, courses, teacher-trainings and retreats (secular and Buddhist) have taken her around Australia and to Europe. These include Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher Training (Step I) and Breathworks Teacher Training (TTi).
Megan has taught meditation privately and publicly in a wide range of settings, including at The School of Life (Australia and Germany), Paypal Berlin and closer to home at Fleurieu Arthouse and in the Aldinga Arts Eco-Village in South Australia. She teaches both online and in-person, from drop-in groups, sangha and workshops to courses, 1:1 custom programs and leading online meditations.
Megan’s teaching is personable, practical, professional and compassionate. Her cross-media creative practice is diverse and she is a highly experienced public speaker.
Megan is a registered member with the Meditation Association of Australia and a former board member (August 2019 – August 2020). Her teaching practice is Megan Spencer Meditation. Connect with her on Facebook.
