Free meditations

I am also offering free meditations internationally at 11 am over summer usually three times a week (usually Thursday, Friday and Saturday). 

I also have two private meditation practice groups that cost a donation that you may email me about.


Michael Pringle and I now discuss mindfulness and compassion weekly on Saturday’s at around 9am (AEST) or in West Coast USA Fridays at 3 pm (PDT).  This goes live onto the Facebook page at:

It is then posted sometime afterwards to my personal page at:

Some time ago I also had a nice chat with Alex Gokce and Dr Kate King who run a podcast called Noble Mind.  I understand this chat will be posted on Saturday (AEST) and Friday (PDT) of this week.  Check out their interesting Podcasts at:

Do you want to:


toward yourself, a foundation for facing life’s many challenges?


in your life, even if you are currently struggling with anxiety, depression or frustration?


when in distress or emotional turmoil?


with partners, friends, family, and others – by giving yourself what you need?  


of self-criticism, emotional trauma, self-doubt and shame?  


for your children, parents, and clients of those in the mental, social and medical professions?

      The mindfulness and compassion programs offered by     John may help.

Do you know what you are?

You are a manuscript of a divine letter.

You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.

This universe is not outside of you.

Look inside yourself;

Everything that you want,

You are already that.

Rumi - 1273.

The Australian Government has announced bulk-billed Telehealth sessions for all Australians (31 December 2021). Each person can have a total of 20 session this year if they are in an area affected by COVID lockdowns.  Access to Medicare registered counsellors such as myself (at no cost) via telephone or video, from anywhere in Australia is now available.  As with face-to-face sessions, you will need a GP referral – which also can be obtained via Telehealth.
