Lifeflow librarian
Member – Meditation Association of Australia

Robyn has been a member of Lifeflow since 1981 and took a leading role in the Centre’s early development. She completed a one-year retreat in 1996 and undertakes regular short retreats annually. Her teaching experience stems from the late 1980s, expanding from giving occasional talks and guided meditations to teaching Learn to Meditate and Level 2 courses, weekend and 7-day retreats at Tara Hills Retreat Centre.

Formerly a high school teacher, Robyn later became a professional librarian working in academic libraries for over 30 years. She also established and continues to manage the library at the Lifeflow Studio. Robyn is currently studying Australian Studies at Flinders University, specialising in Indigenous Art. She has one son, Timothy, and two granddaughters, April and Scarlett.

The practice of meditation led me to appreciate the beauty around me every day: sunsets, bird calls, the moon and stars, the early morning light.
