Feedback from participants on previous courses:

  • Despite low levels of understanding it feels exceptionally right. You may be fascinated to know, and you can quote me, that I smoke 60 cigarettes a day. I never once felt a slight craving for a cigarette during the six week course and actually felt a slight aversion to smoking when I got back into the motor car (JB)
  • Has helped me regain focus, peace & presence of mind when going off the rails.  In particular allowing both positive and negative thoughts and feelings to occur without preference or suppression whilst strengthening the observer side of the mind (DC)
  • Why isn’t such fundamental stuff taught in schools??!!
  • Getting the basics of mindfulness and actually feel that it’s a good thing.
  • Kindfulness!! Finally realising how important it is to be kind to myself (AK)
  • I see mindfulness as the stabilizer of our being and, without it, I can’t imagine developing and balancing  my compassion and wisdom, and being able to respond rather than react to situations.(IJ)
  • it was quite liberating to find a mechanism that frees oneself of the ‘burden of the past and the present’ and living the moment (CT)
