Meditation Made Easy

That's right. Easy. If you don't think you can meditate, or have tried before and failed, then this is the course for you.

Includes 'Spot Meditations'

You can do 'em at work, you can do 'em on a plane. You can even do them in the smallest room in the house.

A Sense Of Fun

As you can probably tell, we like to have a laugh. You'll learn best if you enjoy the process. Meditation shouldn't be a chore, or bore.

Pay What You Like

No price — and no catch. You choose what to pay.


Learn how to meditate with the Melbourne Meditation Centre's Online Meditation Course

Why choose this course?

So, you've heard that meditation is good for you. You've looked into the research that says it helps with anxiety and depression, promotes better sleep, keeps you healthy in body and mind, enables you to manage stress and focus better, as well as to think creatively, relax at will and calm an overactive mind.

In other words, you are convinced that you should meditate, but:

  • you don't know where to start
  • you dont' have the time (or discipline)
  • you can't sit cross-legged (and get restless, agitated or scared when you close your eyes or have to sit still)
  • you can't switch off your mind
  • you've tried it before and found it boring (or fell asleep, or didn't 'get' it, or couldn't work out what you were meant to be doing, or just found that nothing much happened)
  • you already meditate but wish you could go deeper
  • you were warned off it by some friendly minister who insisted that meditation is blasphemous and evil (yes, that does happen!)

The Melbourne Meditation Centre's online meditation course allows you to learn how to meditate from the comfort of your own home, with access to an experienced meditation teacher and everything you need to make learning meditation easy and enjoyable.

The course presents meditation in a simple, practical manner free of extraneous beliefs, jargon or dogma. You won’t have to adopt a new philosophy or change your beliefs or lifestyle. And instead of introducing you just to the techniques of one particular tradition we'll explain and guide you through meditations of all kinds. This gives you the opportunity to find out what works best for you.

More importantly, you'll be taught the 'mechanics' of meditation — how and why it actually works. This gives you the freedom to adapt meditation to your own unique temperament, lifestyle and needs. When you understand the principles behind meditation you don't need to force or discipline yourself to meditate — you can adjust the technique to suit yourself.

The course is divided into six lessons. The recommendation is that you complete one lesson per week, but you can go faster, or slower, if you want to. You'll get a comprehensive guide to meditation which aims to teach you the necessary skills from the ground up. You'll also have access to a range of guided meditations which you can listen to or download. You'll be introduced to spot meditations which you can use to destress wherever you are (in as little as 30 to 60 seconds), as well as formal practices designed for deeper relaxation, better health and self awareness.

Should you have questions about — or challenges with — any of the exercises, you can email Matthew Young, director of the Melbourne Meditation Centre. And once you've completed the six lessons, you'll have everything you need to continue meditating on your own.

I imagine that you'll be surprised at just how easy it is to learn to meditate, partly because the course will show you how to easily overcome the common difficulties meditators experience, and also because the lessons are designed to take you step by step, from short and easy foundational practices, through to the tried and tested techniques that can lead to all the benefits listed above. You won't be required to sit for hours on end, or to master any esoteric practices, nor will you be required to empty your mind of thought or to decipher vague and complicated instructions. If you can breathe, or enjoy listening to a piece of music, you have all the skills needed to benefit.

Yes, You Choose What to Pay!

And what's the catch? Well, there isn't one. It just saves me having to come up with a price!

I've put hundreds of hours into developing this course, based on years of meditation study and practice, but only you can judge how much it's worth and how much you can afford. Therefore, pay what feels right for you. Whatever you give, big or small, will be received with thanks.

What people are saying.

What Our Users Have Been Saying

I am getting so much more than whatever I ever expected from this course. It has given me such a deep understanding of allowance and the permission to take yourself to a place you wouldn't dream of before.
— Natalie R.

Since I finished your online meditation course, I have made a big progress in my practice. Meditation penetrated all sides of my life and I really like it. The online course helped me a lot. There are not similar meditation centres for public in the Czech Republic, so the books or online courses are the only opportunity, how to study and learn meditation in my country.
— Hana P.

I gained so much from this course. I thought I had a fair grasp of meditation and what it was but I was happily proven wrong. The level of information that is put together here is priceless. I have a very different understanding about meditation now and its enhanced my self-practice greatly.

— Edward C.

I have found the course so far very practical. I like the way the lessons have built on each other starting from the basics and leading on into more layers of understanding. Everything is presented clearly and simply in a way that kind of demystifys meditation without reducing its impact or importance.

— David T.

I have just started the online mediation course and I love the "simple definition" of meditation! It is encouraging to be reminded of the basics in plain English. The lessons so far have really helped me re-focus my meditation practise in a very practical no-mess and no-fuss way. I am keen to continue exploring meditation through the online course and to learn various techniques to calm my mind and relax my body. Thanks for developing this well-structured, flexible and practical course.

— Vicky F.

WOW, what can I say!! I can't believe how much I learnt already in that online session! Yes I am one of those people who thought I was doing it wrong, that my mind was to be blank etc. — so all of the theory was very useful and helpful! And I was very surprised that I did feel relaxed and peaceful & I still do. I did a six week meditation course through a community centre a couple of years ago and it was nothing at all like what I just learnt in that lesson! So I am so excited for the next five weeks!

— Caroline P.

This course has consolidated, clarified and simplified my understanding of meditation. I can summarize that meditation is composed of relaxing the body and calming the mind, and this state can be facilitated by utilizing mindfulness ( sensing the present moment through the windows of the 5 senses.) objective awareness of what is noticed and our reaction to what is noticed and the use of focus as a valuable tool for directing and therefore calming the mind. LOVE IT! Thank you!

— Chelsea H.

Thought I'd drop a quick line to thank you for putting this course together. To be honest, I feel I've been incredibly unfair paying $1 for the content you've provided. I didn't realise what a quality resource you'd provided until I'd started it.

— Heidi Q.

I am going pretty well - just need to remember to take every opportunity to practise, whether it be a quick 2 minutes or 20!  I feel I can more easily stop my busy mind, or at least slow it down. I am also more mindful of what is around me. e.g. sounds, colours, patterns, textures, etc. I think my meditation has helped me to de-stress and not take things so seriously.

— Philomena M.

Thanks Matt. I like your course already. I like the simple definition. And I like the lack of dogma. And I love the easy applicability of the short meditations.

— Margie O.

Had a few deep meditations and even given the kids some guided relaxation. Very much enjoyed the course and feel more centered and relaxed overall.

— Scott T.

The course has definitely had a big impact on my life. I'm interested to see what it will be like to meditate without guidance.... though that might be a way off as I'm enjoying the guided meditations so much.

— Martin L.

This course is fantastic. I am enjoying it immensely. Meditation is becoming my favourite part of the day and I am sleeping better than I have in a long while.

— Alison P.

The course is further de-bunking a long held belief that meditation must be formalised and seated. I am clearly understanding that meditation is adaptable and can be used anywhere, at anytime without any fancy 'tools' to assist the process. I am finding that when I remind myself before beginning any meditation that my sole objective is to quieten the mind and relax the body that I have a far greater chance of success.

— Kristie K.

I am feeling more confident in my ability to meditate, both for long and short periods. I am finding my mind is more calm more frequently throughout the day.

— Shelley M.

Hi Matt, thanks for guiding and accompany me in my journey. I am enjoying the techniques described in this course; it is a very good online course amongst varied materials available on the internet, or other online course about meditation. Thank you, happy meditating!

— Chuyen.

Thank you again. I had somewhat of an epiphany this week when I was able to control my tension and anxiety in a high level work meeting through a spot meditation. What an incredible thing I've learned through your course! Everyone should take these lessons, they are truly life changing.

— Heidi Q.

This course has been a very big learning curve. I felt i knew a lot about meditation whereas infact i did not know much at all. I love the "whys" and "hows."

— Maria B.

As a regular meditator I thought I had a pretty good idea of how meditation works but its been so interesting to note how much I didn't know. There's heaps of new little bits of information.
