Meet Susie Spinks.

After starting a regular meditation practice in 2011, Susie witnessed a transformation in herself.   She realised that the practice of meditation had translated into real life for her in that she no longer held on to emotions or thoughts that would have previously bothered her.  She could let them go.  She no longer dwelled on things, constantly thinking about them.  She didn’t lie awake at night bothered by something.  Anger wasn’t as intense and much shorter lived.  She realised she was happier and more content.

After this self-revelation she became very interested in finding out how mindfulness and meditation work to bring about this change.  She is particularly interested in the science of what is happening in the brain.

Susie has past experience of teaching Maths in high schools.  This training and experience has given her the ability to express information in clear, concise and easy-to-understand terms.

Susie is an accredited meditation teacher with the Meditation Association of Australia.   She teaches weekly classes in Sydney as well as regular corporate sessions.  More information is on her website: www.mindfulnessmeditationscience.com

Bookings are being handled directly by the Sydney Institute of Meditation.
