Meditating takes off
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.
