“I have participated in Emmanuelle’s meditation sessions over the last two years and I strongly recommend her. Her meditation sessions have been the highlight of my week, enabling me to relax and find the peace within myself. She has a very natural and gentle way to make you go to the deeper level of your soul and to connect with your body. She uses lots of different techniques such as visualisation, body scans etc and I love the discussions we had following the sessions. She is very encouraging and understanding to every person’s individual circumstances which contributes in creating trust and a positive environment. I benefited a lot from her sessions. Thank you so much Emmanuelle !” — Nathalie
“I see you as a coach and mentor. I appreciate your valuable insight and challenging but very useful talks. You’re doing an amazing job in your work. So grateful I have found you .” –Sandra
“I want you to know how much I am grateful to have you as my meditation guide. Since I have begun meditating with you, my life, my state of mind, my awareness, my relationship with others have changed their courses and I really feel more comfortable.Moreover, I have gained in self-confidence and can now allow myself moments of joy and happiness without guilt, which obviously impact my surroundings.Your knowledge is never-ending and brings us in the depth of ourselves in a very simple and logical way. I just love to listen again and again to the meditation records which you kindly send us. After your sessions, I feel relaxed, strong minded and happy. Thank you, Emmanuelle, for these unique moments.” — Irlande
“Emmanuelle has such a calming and reassuring presence in her meditations. I am grateful for the extra knowledge and the helpful tips she shares.” — Penny
I have been taking meditation classes with Emmanuelle for the last few months and can already feel the benefits in my life of this practise. She is an absolutely incredible teacher with such a calming voice. I love the variety of styles of meditation she teaches as well as her broad knowledge base. We have covered topics on resilience, loving kindness, mindfulness etc… and done tailored meditation practices for each topic. Thanks to Emmanuelle I feel so much more “aware” or mindful in my own life, less stressed and better able to cope with whatever life throws at me.” — Kylie
“Emmanuelle’s guidance has been instrumental in introducing me to mindfulness meditation. Helping with stress management at work and at home. It’s worth every minute you put into the practice.” — Alexandre
“I discovered mindfulness in London with the classic 8 weeks program of John Kabat Zinn and Jonathan Livingston Seagull to help me with a burnout. Back to Australia, Emmanuelle meditation and mindfulness classes kept me connected with the practice and offered me the opportunity to share with other people the benefits of this experience.” — Emma
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the people who have supported me and believed in me along the way:
I am grateful to my coaches Lisa Forde and Julie Bond-Rowe from the Australian Centre for Holistic Studies for their support and encouragements as I started on my journey to become a meditation teacher.
Thank you to my mentor Dori Langevin from the Mindfulness Meditation Certification Program, for inspiring me with your depth of experience and profound wisdom. And thank you to my study buddies, Lisa, Marc, Mike, Rita and Tess for your friendship, positive feedback, and sense of humour!
Here in Melbourne, I am grateful to my mentor and friend Anton Eastick from the Dharma Path for his gentle encouragements and wise guidance to help me grow as a meditation teacher and as a human being.
I also have my friends to thank for their unwavering support and trust since I started on my journey to become a meditation teacher. They have been by my side over the past four years, participating in my classes, becoming my ambassadors, providing me with opportunities to teach, playing the role of life coaches and sounding boards and building this website for me: thank you Julie, Nathalie, Emilie, Jasmine, Emma, Alex, Sandra, Sandy, Kylie, Irlande, Bruno, Gwladys, Eric, Clémence, Delphine, Penny, Yolaine and all the others who have supported me over the years.
