    Jason Partington - Meditation for Men

    Jason Partington - Meditation for Men

    "Jason Partington is 47 years old and was born in Adelaide. He lived in Sydney for 20 years and have called Avalon Beach home for the last eight years.

    20 years ago, he was on a self absorbed journey which was filled with negativity and left him depressed and regularly reaching for alcohol (amongst other addictions) to escape his life and solve his problems. Jason's ego was out of control and he didn’t know who he was and what to live for … He was a lost soul, and was about to lose everything… when he hit rock bottom.

    Fortunately a close friend of him recommended a meditation course called ‘lifting the veil’… This one pamphlet that she gave him changed Jason's life from that point on. You might say… she saved his life.

    At the end of the day, Jason is NO GURU or spiritual teacher… He is a regular aussie bloke just seeking to live life as best as he can, support his family and friends and find daily happiness.

    What Jason can tell you is this, meditation is now a mainstay in his life and has put him on a better path. It is a tool he use every day and which brings him great relief, makes him a better person and helps him to find a level of happiness and peace.

    Jason has a massive desire to pass this precious gift on."
