Jon taught me that the stillness and peace we yearn for is inside each of us. Through creating a space where I felt safe enough to trust myself and to sit with whatever arose, Jon showed me what is possible when I slow down enough to let my internal dialogue settle.

Jane W Smith, Brisbane

"A spiritual and divine experience."

Milan Parshotam, Brisbane

"Jon is passionate about and dedicated to his work and clients. He is a genuine example of “walking the talk” and I know he utilises what he shares as strategies and techniques for living a happier, healthier life. I run my own business in the wellness industry and Jon is my go-to for everything Mindfulness. I highly recommend him."

Leonie Newton, Life and Success Coach at Opportune Moments

"A new perspective of reality can only be achieved by yourself and the ability of seeing things without over-thinking and no judgement. Jon has been a great help on this journey where I learned about myself and the world around me in ways that I couldn't even imagine before. The meditation techniques and being able to focus and slow down in my mind opened opportunities to re-evaluate my life, and showed me the simple pleasures and beauty of moments that I witness everyday. Thanks Jon and all the people that participated in the group"
