Kate Paton

After several years in corporate industrial relations and human resources and subsequently running a small business, Kate followed her long held interest in contemplative practices and meditation, completing studies in natural medicine in 2008. An interest in linking eastern philosophy and western science led to studies in Psychology and ultimately completion of a Masters in Public Health at Melbourne University.  In 2010, Kate completed teacher training for the Cultivating Emotional Balance programme.  She currently works in paediatric research and joins the Contemplary to continue her interest in the application of contemplative practices in personal, professional and academic life.
