John Burston - meditation teacher

John Burston

Director of Teaching
BSc (Maths Science)

Member – Meditation Association of Australia

John has been practising meditation since 1990. Along the way he’s completed a year-long retreat and many other advanced meditation techniques. 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 meditation restored calm, emotional wellbeing and opened up a warmth of feeling contact with friends, family and colleagues.

Now in his role as Director of Teaching, John oversees the Lifeflow curriculum, teaches classes, courses and retreats, and mentors individual students. He loves bushwalking, health & nutrition, 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.
