Pauline McKinnon has been a leader in the field of mental health, anxiety treatment and management and therapeutic meditation for over 30 years. She is a celebrated author, psychotherapist and the founder of the Stillness Meditation Centre in Melbourne.

Melbourne based Pauline McKinnon has been a leader in the field of therapeutic meditation for over 30 years helping people overcome the troublesome symptoms of anxiety and manage stress, grief, trauma and other personal issues. A psychotherapist and author on the topic, Pauline specialises in the unique Meares’ style of meditation. Pauline, also the founder of the Stillness Meditation Centre in Melbourne, suggests that while most people have great intentions when they put in place their New Year’s resolutions, the reality is that nearly 70 percent give up on their goals by February.

“The reasons for this are mixed — those goals all seem easy in the holiday season. But very soon life propels us in various directions many of which may demand far more importance than the ideals set on New Year’s Eve. And, indeed January in Australia has witnessed tremendous tragedy, loss and suffering in a range of ways. It is so important to cultivate skills that assist life’s challenges in a calm and purposeful way,” Pauline McKinnon said today. …

Everyone has heard the old saying ’50 percent of marriages end in divorce’. Although this is not entirely accurate, it does remind Australians to consider that their fairytale relationship may not last. Inevitably this leads to one question that an increasing number of Aussies are asking — ‘what about a prenuptial agreement?’

Fiona Reid, founder and managing director of Reid Family Lawyers today said that, “prenups really weren’t worthwhile until the concept of binding financial agreements were introduced into family law legislation.

“What we are seeing is that as family law becomes progressively complicated, prenuptial agreements are becoming more commonplace.

“At Reid Family Lawyers, we aim to keep proceedings outside of the court system. We focus on assisting our clients to resolve their issues through mediation, avoiding the further stress of litigation. Ideally, in order to achieve this, there needs to be clarity at the outset and a good well detailed prenup may be a way of avoiding litigation later on. …

According to grammar expert Deb Doyle, Australian educators are failing to teach grammar and punctuation adequately.

Doyle has worked as a grammar and punctuation educator for 25 years. She teaches grammar and editing at the Australian Writers’ Centre and The University of Sydney.

“The reason I have a job is that so many students are slipping through the cracks in the school system. Commentators should discuss grammatical ability alongside mathematical ability,” Doyle said.

“High-school teachers aren’t trained to value correct sentence construction. They don’t police it enough. When they’re marking assignments, they let too many mistakes through. …
