Med­i­tat­ing takes off

Pinjarra Murray Times - - AT THE MOVIES -

VOL­UN­TEERS are the foun­da­tion of not-for-profit group Man­durah Med­i­ta­tion.

Man­durah Mayor Rhys Wil­liams vis­ited the Scott Street premises re­cently to speak to or­gan­is­ers and vol­un­teers.

The premises were ren­o­vated over seven months by the vol­un­teers and the group has been op­er­at­ing for six months.

Vol­un­teer Erin Lane said the group had turned her life around.

“I was lost and had low self es­teem. Med­i­ta­tion turned my life around,” she said.

Her daugh­ter Adia Suther­land (16) has been med­i­tat­ing since she was 12 years old.

“While other peo­ple my age are get­ting de­pressed, I’ve learnt to let things go and fo­cus on what’s im­por­tant,” she said.

There are about 25 vol­un­teers at Man­durah Med­i­ta­tion and 50 to 60 clients.

Anne Baw­combe said any do­na­tions to Man­durah Med­i­ta­tion went back into the run­ning of the group.

The ser­vice caters for in­di­vid­u­als and also of­fers self­de­vel­op­ment work­shops for schools, com­pa­nies, sport clubs and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 9586 2070.
