Brisbane Meditation Centre requested that the course be held there. The Centre provides audio guided session to all people. Unfortunately Local Australians who are interested are unable to ask questions and receive an in depth answer as there are no coaches based there. It is only until now that there will be experienced meditation coaches to cater to their needs.
The meditation course will be lead by experienced Thai Buddhist Monks who speak fluent English. They teach in a way that is universal, modern and practical. The meditation method they use is the Middle Way meditation technique, one of the most ancient techniques of meditation in the world. Its simplicity, originality and effectiveness have made the Middle way method among the most popular meditation techniques in many countries i.e. Thailand, its international popularity is growing fast.
Middle way meditation is all about self-discovery, relaxation and purification of the mind. This meditation will have no conflict with any religion or creed, a way of meditating so that you can use it in your everyday activities that will create peace in your life. And also bring peace to the world.
