Who We Are
Blending East and West, Kevin Hume specializes in executive mentoring using meditation as a personal therapeutic and performance base. As Director of Sydney Meditation Centre, his unique teaching methods distill his considerable life experiences as a high-level communicator and participant-observer in the media, politics and corporate life. He has a particular interest in the science of meditation, as well as in the cultures and traditions from which such techniques are drawn.
He was introduced to meditation in 1992 by renowned meditation teacher and internationally bestselling author, Eric Harrison of the Perth Meditation Centre, with whom he now works in professional association. Along with numerous individual clients, he has provided programs for such high profile corporate clients as Saatchi & Saatchi, Du Pont Australia, Austar Entertainment, The CEO Institute and more.
His teaching skills and understandings were recently displayed in his six-part meditation series ‘Meditation in Six Spiritual Traditions’ and ‘Science and the Buddha,’ which were commissioned and played nationwide by ABC Radio and across Asia and the Pacific for Radio Australia.
An experienced conference facilitator, he was also host presenter in 2008 at the Melbourne Museum, 2009 Melbourne Convention Centre, 2010 RMIT Storey Hall of Meditation Events’ Australian National Meditation Conference and 2018 at the Australian Catholic University as part of Meditation Australia’s inaguaral conference, bringing together the best in meditation practice and neuroscience with Australia’s leading teachers and academic researchers.
‘I have a highly stressful job. This course gave me the skills to relax in stressful moments and also how to focus when I need to. Kevin is a great teacher making the course just so easy.’
Stuart Rodriguez, Commercial Real Estate Agent
‘Kevin is a natural for meditation teaching – obviously vastly experienced – knowledgeable on many streams of thinking – humorous – and the ability to blend the right mix of talk and practice.’
