About Kate Cliff

Hi I’m Kate. I’m from Kiama on the South Coast of NSW. I meditate. Everyday. It’s the tool I use to power up so that I can launch out into life. And really live. 

It sets me up for the day ahead. My mind is clear, sharp and creative. My body is strong. I have energy, clarity and I’m ready for what life has to offer. 

I find that I’m fully engaged in dynamic activity, but the stress of life more easily rolls off me. And I am present, aware and available in my interactions with others. 

Meditation is the most important thing I do in my day everyday to get the most out of myself and my life. It’s the recharge cord for the mind and body. Just like I connect my devices, I take the time to do that for myself, so that I can launch out into life at full capacity. When I meditate, I find I become more productive, I find I have more time. Which means doing more of the things I love. I teach because I want that for you too. 

Whether you’re a CEO, a student, an athlete, a parent, with correct instruction, anyone can meditate anywhere, anytime. Effortlessly.  

I haven’t always been a meditator. And I never thought I was capable of meditating. 

I learnt to meditate when my life was completely overwhelming. I was working as a lawyer in Sydney when I was hit by a car as a pedestrian.

The prognosis for my quality of life after that was not good. Severely injured, in chronic pain, and struggling mentally, 13 months later I finally took the advice of many, realised I had nothing to lose and everything to gain, and I learnt to meditate. 

My body started to come out of pain and heal, I started to be able to sleep and eat, and I got space back from the negative, self-destructive voices in my head. And I felt very self-empowered, that I had a tool that I could use anywhere, anytime, that enabled me to change my experience of life. 

The benefits I experience from meditating are undeniable. It’s the tool I added into my life which allowed me to thrive rather than just survive. And when you do this, life becomes a whole heap of fun. 

Meditate. Then get out there and start living!

Want to hear more? As part of a recent documentary I talk about why I learnt to meditate, my motivations for teaching and ultimately how the experience has changed my life. This short film offers a greater insight into my experience of adding this practice into my life.

 

In 2012 I entered an intensive year long study program with my teacher Tim Brown and graduated as a Vedic Meditation teacher in Rishikesh India, the heart of Vedic knowledge, adding this qualification to my Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Communications and Media Studies and Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. Since that time I have undergone further training and professional development with Deepak Chopra MD, Thom Knoles, Tim Brown and Dr Matthew Bourke. 

On my return from India I set up the Kate Cliff Meditation Centre in my hometown of Kiama on the South Coast of NSW. Since that time people have travelled from all over Australia to learn to meditate with me as well as flying me all over the world to teach meditation and present keynote speeches. I offer private and group courses of instruction throughout Australia and worldwide. I am grateful to be recognised as an expert in the industry and have twice been a Finalist as the Wellness Advocate of the Year for the Women in Law Awards – in 2020 and 2019. If you’ve ever thought that you’d like to learn to meditate, I’d love to teach you the technique of meditation that changed my life!
