Founder of the McLean Meditation Institute
“I have taught thousands of people to meditate over the last 20 years. My primary mission in life is to achieve world peace, and I know—more than anything else—that having people learn to meditate is the most effective way to achieve this goal.
“As much as I love to teach, I realize that I cannot do it alone. I founded the McLean Meditation Institute to teach others how to become effective meditation and mindfulness teachers. What I emphasize in my trainings is how to become a really clear communicator so my teachers can use a number of methods to serve a broad spectrum of people from all walks of life. I get personally involved with each and every teacher to help them uncover their greatest skills and attributes so they can utilize them effectively with their students.
“Having taught Olympic and professional athletes, rock stars, and presidents of Fortune 500 companies, along with moms and dads and even young children, I have learned it takes a knowledgeable, well-prepared individual to be able to teach all aspects of meditation and mindfulness clearly. This is my goal with our new teachers at the Institute.”
About Sarah McLean
Sarah McLean, best-selling author of Soul-Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation (Hay House 2012), is an inspiring, contemporary meditation teacher who makes meditation accessible to everyone. Deepak Chopra recommends her work saying it’s “entertaining, informative, and inspiring for even the most experienced meditator.”
Her mission is to support those who seek fulfilling lives, better health, inner peace, and ways to manage their stress through the programs she has created for the McLean Meditation Institute. She’s been pursuing her own meditation practice since the late 1980s, and has been teaching meditation and mind/body health programs since the early 1990s. She has taught thousands of people worldwide to meditate, which in turn helps them to lead more balanced lives.
Her interest in mind/body health began with her training as a medic and behavioral specialist in the U.S. Army in the 1980s where she was trained to treat soldiers with post traumatic stress disorder. Though she had learned zazen, chakra meditations, and various relaxation and visualization practices in college, it wasn’t until 1990 when she actually began a formal, daily meditation practice. It was then she also began her work with mind/body health pioneer, Dr. Deepak Chopra.
She lived in the Maharishi Ayurveda Mind/Body Health Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts where Chopra was the medical director. The center was run by the Transcendental Meditation organization.
She studied the ancient practices of Ayurveda, an ancient holistic healing approach which suggests that health and healing begins with awareness, and that meditation is the first step towards creating balance in the mind and body. Ayurveda’s healing modalities include meditation, yoga, daily and seasonal routines, diet, exercise, identifying mind/body types (doshas) and imbalances, purification therapies, sound therapy, aroma therapy, and more. She furthered her studies with Dr. John Douillard, an expert pulse diagnostician at the center. Later, she attended the Ayurvedic College at the Mount Madonna Institute with Dr. Vasant Lad. She has also practiced various advanced meditation techniques, including the Bliss Technique, and the TM-Sidhis. She was the president of the TM-Sidhis class.
Deepak Chopra was invited to bring meditation and Ayurveda to one of the top healthcare organizations in California, and Sarah became the founding education director of the Chopra Center. She provided programs on holistic healing modalities, and was one of the first to become certified as a Chopra Center educator. She taught mind/body programs auch as Perfect Health, the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Course, and Primordial Sound Meditation. She went on to be one of the lead trainers of Primordial Sound Meditation Teachers. While at the Chopra Center, Sarah also has had the good fortune of studying intensively with best-selling authors Debbie Ford, author of The Secrets of the Shadow, and Margot Anand, author of Everyday Ecstasy.
After eight years of working with Deepak Chopra, she took a six-month sabbatical. First she traveled to south India and lived in a traditional ashram and practiced bhakti yoga and chanting. She then moved north, studying with Tibetan Buddhist monks in Dharamsala and teaching English to Tibetan Buddhist nuns.
Upon returning to the States, Sarah became a resident and Tenzo (cook) at Yokoji Zen Mountain Center, a traditional Zen Buddhist training center in the San Jacinto mountains of Southern California. She spent days and weeks at a time in silence and meditation, took Jukai (traditional Buddhist vows), and gave initial instruction in the sitting meditation practices (zazen) to new students. She also studied with Zen Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh and received the Five Mindfulness Trainings.
She left the monastery to serve as the personal assistant to Gary Zukav, a self-proclaimed secular monk in Mount Shasta, California, and author of the best-seller, Seat of the Soul. She was then asked to direct Byron Katie’s School of the Work. Sarah traveled worldwide with Katie as she shared the self-inquiry process called The Work in the 10-day schools.
In 2001, Sarah moved to Sedona, Arizona and eventually founded the Sedona Meditation Training Company, now known as the McLean Meditation Institute, which offers Meditation Teacher Training, Retreats and Workshops, Meditation Classes, and immersion in various meditation practices to enhance mind/body health and self-awareness.
Sarah is a sought-after presenter, and has been invited to lead self-discovery retreats and programs at world class getaways as Miraval Resort in Tucson, Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and at the Omega Institute in New York. Organizations such as Proctor & Gamble, Young Presidents’ Organizations, and the Thunderbird School of Global Management have asked her to inspire their executives. She has been featured in the New York Times, Huffington Post, and Chicago Tribune, and has taught meditation on national media outlets, including Fox Health News. Sarah is a frequent contributor to health and lifestyle publications. She was voted Arizona’s favorite meditation leader by readers of Natural Awakenings and was awarded the Trailblazer recognition by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).
Sarah is also a dedicated environmentalist. She served on the board of a local environmental organization, “Keep Sedona Beautiful,” a group dedicated to preserving the wonder of Sedona, and was the recipient of the Sustainable Arizona Service Leadership Award. She is committed to being a green business, too. She insists on using recycled paper, compostable cups, and recycled packaging for her CD, Meditate, she likes to shop locally, and she donates proceeds from her programs and products to organizations committed to saving our natural resources.
From the first opportunity I met her I knew that Sarah could help me to learn to do what she does—help others realize their full potential. Sarah helped me to translate my thoughts and ideas into action. By working with her I discovered exactly what I was longing to do—help women discover God's purpose for their lives!
My intention was to give myself a meaningful weekend to honor myself. Not only did I honor myself, I had the most incredible, transformational experience of my life.
Your meditation class was an amazing experience that I will not forget. After meditating with you, I haven’t ever felt like that in my whole life. Thank you.
After taking the meditation program, I am more clear of what I need and want, and more trusting of my inner voice. I no longer take anti-depressants which I have been on for years. I feel more secure in my self and my life.

The Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness dates back over 5000 years with its roots in ancient India.

Books & CD’s
Sarah McLean, Author and Meditation Instructor
Soul-Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation
Soul-Centered is entertaining, informative, and inspiring, even for the most experienced meditator.
— Deepak Chopra
Sarah McLean’s first book, Soul Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation will help you to find just that.
She wrote this book to make meditation simple and easy for anyone. You will learn the 5 Essentials to a successful meditation practice, along with step-by-step instruction in a wide variety of meditation practices, including an eating meditation, a number of walking meditations, and a variety of seated silent meditations. You’ll also discover the many transformational effects of meditation, which include becoming more self-aware, becoming more joyous, being less judgemental, treating yourself and others with more compassion, feeling more connected to your true self, expressing yourself more honestly, receiving the gifts of your life, and establishing a nourishing lifestyle.
Sarah shares her stories about her meditation journey—meditating in temples in Japan, living and chanting in an ashram in India, and being a head cook in a Zen Buddhist monastery in the wilderness. This journey into meditation took her around the world and totally transformed her life. Though she traveled around the world to find the best and most authentic meditation practices, you don’t have to. You’ll find them compiled in this 8-week program, perfect for those just beginning a meditation practice, or for those who want to deepen their existing experience.
These recordings are an example of a responsible business that gives back. The CDs are packaged in 100% recycled packaging, and Sarah donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the CD to Compassionate Journeys.
