My training as a meditation centre was based at the Yarra Valley Living Centre which was founded by Ian Gawler back in 1075. Ian has an amazing story of recovery from life threatening cancer when he was a young man. His experiences lead him to share his learnings about the value of mediation and nutrition in all aspects of healing. Now the Yarra Valley Living Centre provides support for many people who have cancer, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. In addition they teach meditation and provide workshops on managing stress and other health and wellbeing related issues.
