Lionheart Meditation

 Enriching lives with mindful practices which are playful, powerful and practical.






I am Max Cook, founder of Lionheart Meditation. 


I used to think that my life was amazing. I had everything going according to ‘plan’; amazing job, amazing partner, searching for a first house together, running a successful start-up business. Things were sweet. 


Then, everything changed. 

Sitting next to my beautiful fiancé as she was told she has an extremely aggressive cancer and has about 5 months to live.

I was left in a state of shock and confusion. 

My world had been turned upside down, everything lost meaning and i couldn't see the point of life anymore. 


I started a journey to help me cope with the pain, confusion and to (re)-discover my meaning of life. 

I chose to take this as an opportunity to understand life and why it is so precious, to appreciate every moment and to take back control of my life. I chose to go within myself, to feel the pain, to understand and to grow from it. 


On my journey, I immersed myself in various traditional mindfulness practices from around the world, from Buddhist philosophy and meditation, Shamanic healing and plant medicines, to yoga and pranayama, and finally Wim Hof (breathwork and cold therapy). 


These practices gave me the tools and inner space to understand and explore my emotions, gain clarity, heal and create the life I wanted. 


This process of gaining knowledge, understanding and then integration of different modalities, gave me a deep understanding of ancient practices and how they can work in our modern lives. 


This was the beginning of my journey to create Lionheart Meditation and to share this wisdom with the world, to make it applicable for the modern Western lifestyle. 









Lionheart Meditation is about enriching lives with mindful practices which are playful, powerful and practical. Our philosophy draws upon ancient wisdom and practices of meditation, infused with contemporary insight and delivered in a relatable and accessible format - stripped of the 'spiritual' fluff, fashion and BS which so often gets in the way of the real fruits of these practices. 


Our mission is to demystify spiritual practices and foster an appreciation for their importance in everyday life. Through playful and powerful techniques, we empower individuals to explore their inner power, heal, grow and discover their true potential.


To achieve this, Lionheart Meditation offers a range of modalities tailored to the unique needs of each individual, including:

Through applying mindfulness practices to adventure activities, these sessions are designed to challenge individuals physically and mentally, allowing them to break through limitations and reach new heights.
