Mel Shinton

Mel Shinton

Melanie Hoetsu Shinton gained her Bachelor of Nursing in Sydney, and then went on to complete her Masters in Critical Care Nursing. In her twenty-year nursing career she has seen the effects that stress has on the human body. This is the main motivation that drives her passion for teaching others about mindfulness. Mel started practising Qigong in 2009, and found that this form of mindful movement provided a sense of calm that she had never experienced before. After practising Qigong for some years, she fell into meditation through brain-training and then discovered the Zenways Mindfulness Teacher Training with Daizan in 2012. Mel is also accredited to deliver the Mindfulness Association’s Mindfulness Based Living course, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention as well as Mindfulness at Work’s programme. She is currently also completing her MSc in Mindfulness Studies with the University of Aberdeen.

Mel regularly delivers mindfulness training workshops and runs a regular meditation group in Edinburgh. Her recent assignments include the BBC and Johnson & Johnson. She has a professional and personal interest in the role of compassion, insight and wisdom and how these can be developed and accessible to everyone.
