As a presenter, Lauren flourishes being in front of people, the tone and control which Lauren posses in her voice lends itself to Meditation teachings.
As a Meditation Guide, Lauren works with small groups in ‘The Greenpost’ Prahran Studio, on larger scale locations on international retreats, and to even bigger Corporate groups like L’Oréal, Telstra and Cisco.
“Everyone can get something out of meditation, when you think you can’t meditate, you're too busy, you don't need to mediate, they are the moments you can benefit the most. I love seeing groups really sink into my guidance and surrender themselves to the moment. it's almost physically visible, and very rewarding, not just for myself, but the individuals.
Always remember, Meditation is not about controlling the mind and thoughts, its about ensuring your thoughts do not control you.
Not only is Lauren a spirited Speaker and Meditation Guide, her passion lies within the kitchen. Lauren grew up with a talented mother as a commercial cook, and healthy, nutrient dense recipes are the basis of all her meals.
