In 2020 Megan had a busy year producing and hosting a series of  ‘inspiring conversations with inspiring people in meditation’, for peak industry body, Meditation Australia.

Between May and July 2020 – to support the organisation in her voluntary capacity as a Board Member – Megan produced six online video conversations, available to both MA members and the public.

An initiative started to support the MA community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the episodes of this “vodcast” were released monthly, alternating with a series of written member profiles/Q&As, which Megan also edited and produced.
