Ages: 16+

For a peaceful, uninterrupted 45 minutes, we invite you to relax in the inspiring surrounds of the Australian Museum, amongst objects and specimens that tell us fascinating stories from the past. Guided by actor, presenter and yogi Rachael Coopes, these regular mindfulness and meditation sessions, exclusively for AM Members, will help you focus on the present, ground yourself and set you up for a more productive week.

Running the first Monday of each month, these morning meditations will help you build skills such as patience, tolerance and self-awareness, to manage the stress and anxiety that often comes with our busy lives.

Please meet at the entry to Crystal Hall on arrival. Each session will be held in a different gallery in the Museum.

Monday Meditation is for AM Members only. Not a member? Join now to receive free or discounted entry to special exhibitions, exclusive events, access to our Members Lounge and a range of benefits.



Please refer to the AM's refund policy here. Members Benefits are for registered AM Members only.
