Andy Loke - Education Coordinator

I am a former teacher with experience teaching in Primary and Secondary school year levels. I have taught students from vast multi-cultural backgrounds and diverse socio-economic status. As the Education Coordinator at Smiling Mind I am committed to developing resilient, reflective and mindful thinkers, I endeavour to develop the behaviours and habits needed to create a more mindful community. 

The best thing about working at Smiling Mind…

Knowing that the work I do everyday is having a positive impact on someone's life. 

The biggest challenge in my role:

Trying to engage every Australian school and student in mindfulness meditation. 

If I wasn’t working at Smiling Mind I’d…

Be teaching in a classroom.

What I do when I’m not at work:

I love playing and watching sports - basketball & football are my favourites. I also enjoy meditating, reading and exploring.

On meditation:

Meditation helps me to become more present in the moment.

My favourite inspirational quote:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us”
- Marianne Williamson
