About Us

INNER PEACE is an independent organisation based in Melbourne, Australia.
Our main activity is to teach the art of living happily and healthily.

Michael and Marlyse Carroll in New ZealandThe Inner Peace Institute for Wellbeing was founded in August 1995 by Marlyse and Michael Carroll.

We teach life skills and meditation in a way that empowers you to take more control over your life. Our material is based on well-documented medical and psychological research as well as ancient Eastern philosophy. In fact, many of our students are referred to us from local doctors, psychiatrists and other health practitioners.

At the moment we are in a state of transition. We stopped regular face to face classes in 2012 and will soon offer online courses.
