Meredith Forder

Once described as a Karma Chameleon, Meredith Forder can be seen wearing ivory Indian robes while teaching Vedanta philosophy, or suitable business attire while training business people in Self Management.

Meredith is the founding director of the VIP – Vedanta Institute Perth. She is a graduate of the Vedanta Academy in India and a senior student of world-renowned spiritual master Swami Parthasarathy.

After many years in India, Meredith now lives a simple life in Perth, Western Australia, with her husband Paul and their two Airedales. She wakes up every day at 4am to study, reflect and contemplate on the higher aspects of life and living. She is vegan and practices yoga daily. Her work involves teaching Vedanta and Self Management.

Through her teachings, Meredith presents insights about our modern-day epidemics—stress, anxiety, fear, addictions and depression—and provides a refreshing way to overcome them. She offers the essence of Eastern philosophy to our Western society, bringing a balance between outer success and inner peace of mind.
