About The Founder:
Marion Miller is an expert on mindfulness-based coaching; as one of Australia’s first coaches to blend coaching and mindfulness she’s lead the way in the whole-person approach. Marion walks the talk using mindfulness to understand deeply the connection of the mind/body/emotions. She coaches some of Australia’s top professionals on how to lead and live mindfully. Marion has personally shifted from limiting conditions to a more adaptive growth mindset, overcoming life’s ‘curveballs’ to develop greater meta-cognition – and she’s passionate about sharing these skills with others.
Having practiced meditation since 1996, Marion is an original on the meditation scene in Melbourne and now works with corporations, innovative tech startups, business owners and universities. She’s on the Coles HQ’s coaching panel and facilitates coaching in workplaces, with professionals and students.

Having trained in MBSR (the gold standard of mindfulness programs internationally) and with a life long practice in meditation, Marion has a genuine insight into mindfulness, a comprehensive theoretical framework and coaches clients toward the power of presence.

She trained to teach meditation with Melbourne Meditation Centre in 2009 and did Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction/Cognitive Therapy teacher training with MTIA in 2016-17.
