Start Here

G’day, and thanks so much for reading!

I’m Melli, I’m a mindfulness teacher but first and foremost, a mindfulness practitioner. You can find out more about me here

I originally created this blog as a way to support those who had completed a mindfulness retreat or course with me, but it has now taken on a life of its own. To my delight, many people from all over the world are gaining from the posts. I hope you do as well.

Below I’ve organised the most popular blog posts into a useful guide so you can explore it easily. Enjoy!

You can also check out my upcoming events here or sign up for my newsletter to stay in touch and receive your two free meditation audios so you can start practicing mindfulness today!

    I am registered for 31day program. Cannot get out and in to continue listening , or re-listen–as my schedule allows.
    Are there tech glitches, or can you offer advice for tech-challenged folks?
    This should be easier–should not have to re-register every time!
