That’s right, we've got a wide range of guided meditations created by the meditationHQ team, for you to experience every single day. All recordings will be available on this website, as well as on the meditationHQ Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
You can choose to meditate for 10 or 20 minutes, once or multiple times a day. You can also save your favourite sequence to repeat the practice in the way that serves you best.
Registered participants will have new links delivered directly to your inbox each morning and be able to track meditation progress which counts towards our ultimate One Million Meditations goal by 2030.

Around the world, there have been countless scientific studies on the effect of mindfulness and meditation on psychological health, but very few on Australian soil. The University of Sydney, and the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) have recognised the One Million Meditations initiative as a unique and valuable opportunity to capture Australian data.
Partnering with meditationHQ, they will conduct their own investigations and clinical study in order to publish a research paper later in 2024.
The University of Sydney and UTS will be managing the data collation process and monitoring the results for the One Million Meditations event.

Founder of One Million Meditations and meditationHQ
The One Million Meditations (OMM) event is the creation of meditationHQ founder, Jason Partington.
The event was named by Lorelie Luna Ladiges, who has been instrumental in the growth and support of meditationHQ since 2018. The event was originally created in response to elevating suicide rates and mental health challenges experienced in the local Northern Beaches community.
The purpose of One Million Meditations (OMM) is to increase awareness of meditation as a powerful tool for mental wellness and to raise funds for Lifeline Australia. The event is in its 4th year, and has raised over $85000 since the year 2021 for Lifeline Australia.
The MeditationHQ Community has huge plans to grow the event nationally in all captial cities, major regional towns and globally through to 2030.
"I've been on this meditation journey for over 20+ years, and it's had some profoundly positive impacts on my life. I feel more grounded, less reactive and generally a kinder person to be around. Most importantly, it has built my capacity and connection with both myself and those closest to me. There is also something truly special about meditating in the community and with others, so I look forward to meditating with you all in May at One Million Meditations."

Why support Lifeline
Making an Impact with Lifeline
The meditationHQ Community was launched in 2018 on Avalon Beach, NSW in response to an alarming increase in suicide rates. We believe that connection to the community brings hope and purpose, and practices of mindfulness and meditation help us to reduce stress, enhance emotional well-being and rediscover the joy in the small things.
With this purpose, we have partnered with Lifeline, Australia's leading suicide prevention service with a vision to achieve an Australia free of suicide and ensure that no person in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
Hope through Connection
Research and experience have shown that it is through connection that we find hope and for the next 3 years we will work alongside Lifeline as an arm of mental wellness, growing OMM nationally, raising funds for suicide prevention and spreading awareness for the benefits of mindfulness meditation.
Lifeline’s services are available 24 hours a day to listen, without judgment to any person in Australia who is feeling overwhelmed and every dollar raised means Lifeline can answer more calls from someone in crisis and ensure that Lifeline’s services will continue to be there.
