Lifeflow meditation mindfulness Adelaide teachers John Burston 01

John Burston

Director of Teaching

BSc (Maths Science)

Adjunct Associate Lecturer, School of Medicine, Flinders University
Member – Meditation Association of Australia

John has been teaching meditation since 1996. His study and practice of meditation include completing a year-long retreat, advanced practices in Insight and Yoga-Tantra and regularly undertaking three to four weeks of retreat practice each year. He has taught the Lifeflow Learn to Meditate course, Level 2 and Level 3 courses plus weekend, 7 and 10-day retreats and workplace sessions for many years.

Formerly working as an IT consultant, he found that a practice of meditation rekindled a depth of calm and emotional wellbeing. Now in his role as General Manager John juggles overseeing the daily operations of Lifeflow, teaching classes and mentoring individual students. He loves bushwalking, keeping fit, exploring the interface of meditation and neuroscience, a little bit of travel and enjoying good food with close friends and family.

Meditation is a gift: finding some calm and balance, some refuge from the emotional storms that can derail you in life.
