Lyndi Smith is a human being, nature lover, meditation teacher and writer.
She’s delighted to be your guide, into the wilderness inside.
Her main practice is “listening deeply” —listening to the nature outside of us, and the nature inside. These practices have helped her cultivate greater calm, compassion, connection and clarity in her own life.
She teaches mindfulness and compassion live and online, with Mind With Heart, Mindfulness Works Australia, Conscious Beginnings and regularly instructs at Heart Insight.
Having trained in both secular and traditional mindfulness, she is qualified to teach many forms of meditation (BSY), including nature connection, qi gong and self-compassion (MSC).
Feeling burnt out, she started practising thirteen years ago. Since then, she has racked up over 10,000 hours of practice, including a year of personal retreat and two years assisting others in their retreats.
Now back in the city, she designs and facilitates mental wellbeing programmes for organisations like the Dept. of Education and Training, Kane Construction, Queensland Police Service, Teachers Health Fund, Computer Merchants, BHP, Brisbane City Council and WeWork.
She has led retreats in Australia, France and the UK.
On weekends she loves escaping to the forest, hiking, listening deeply, chasing waterfalls and playing the flute for the trees, birds and mountains.
She loves learning about indigenous culture in this land called Australia and deeply respects her elders, mentors and brothers and sisters within the Tibetan, Aboriginal and Irish traditions, and honours her own Celtic ancestry.
