Meredith Forder is a stress management consultant, philosopher and happiness coach, who has spent over 25 years researching the ancient wisdom of Vedanta and how it benefits modern life and living.
Innovative and revolutionary are words used to describe Meredith’s method of teaching. She presents clear insights into the cause of worry, anxiety, stress and depression and offers refreshing ways to overcome them.
Born in Sydney, New South Wales, Meredith grew up with a penchant for art and design. At 18, Meredith pursued a young girl’s dream and became a successful fashion designer, winning several prestigious awards.
However, it was not long before she realised the hollowness of her pursuit. Disillusioned at 24 by life’s paradox of gaining more, but having less — less satisfaction and less fulfillment — she ditched the dresses and embarked on a mission to design her own life.
Her journey began in Perth in April 1992, where three experiences miraculously synchronized — an awe-inspiring book, a spiritual retreat and a remarkable man from India. Three encounters that would change her life forever.
Six weeks later she was in India, at the Vedanta Academy, where she lived an inspired life for six years, studying and researching the ancient, yet timeless, wisdom of Vedanta.
Now based in Perth, Western Australia, Meredith offers the essence of Eastern philosophy to our Western society, bringing a balance between outer success and inner peace of mind.
