Michael Sandford - Meditation for Well-Being - Meditation PerthI am a highly skilled and very experienced Perth meditation teacher who has trained in India (the home of meditation), the United States and Australia.

I have been teaching meditation for over 20 years, have worked with cancer survivors, students, people in commerce and industry and those people wanting a more peaceful and happy life.

There are many reasons why people choose to learn meditation. For health, happiness, feelings of wellbeing, improved concentration, or for better sports performance. Regardless of what reasons are chosen, all these benefits are gained – more details of meditation benefits are found on the Meditation Benefits page.

Since regaining my health following a health crisis in 2003 I have concentrated my attention in the teaching of meditation, particularly to those people who are faced with health issues.

I maintain my expertise and professional development by meditating daily, and attending every year ten day and weekend silent intensive meditation retreats. I facilitate numerous weekly Perth meditation classes, conduct meditation retreats and I lecture to health professionals on the practise and benefits of meditation.

I have appeared on Western Australian television programs, such as ABC Stateline, and Channel 10 news, and have been interviewed on RTR FM 92.1, Sonshine FM, 6eba World Radio and ABC 720. I recently appeared in the West Australian’s newspaper’s video news:

I believe that anyone can learn to meditate, and the time spent learning the various styles of meditation is a wonderful investment which will accrue amazing benefits. The following article in The West Australian features an interview with one of my students who attended my meditation class:

I am currently assisting the University of WA and Griffith University, QLD in two Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) research projects investigating the impact of MBCT on well-being. MBCT is a psychological therapy that is a blend of East and West – the mindfulness techniques of Buddhism combined with cognitive therapy, a conventional psychological treatment.
