"... you may be pleased to know that I have very much integrated the formal mindfulness practice into my daily routine, using a variety of the meditations from the CDs. It is making a huge difference to my resilience as I continue to go through a very stressful time. My objective for coming on the course was to learn how to use mindfulness when things are not going well and I have certainly achieved that!"
Course participant 2012

" It's been fantastic. The simplicity of the course has meant it's not been overwhelming and felt manageable. It has enabled me to utilize skills I didn't know I had ... to bring about a greater sense of pleasure in pleasurable things and has reduced my tendency to escalate on anxiety states and worries by focusing on the present and focusing on experiencing the experience! Brilliant course, fantastic teaching. Certainly recommend it."

Course participant 2012

"After feeling nervous before (and at) the first class, worrying about what to expect, I have settled in to enjoying all aspects of the classes. The theory was presented at a level that was understandable and the exercises have helped me really absorb it. Sharing my experiences [of mindfulness practice] with other students has helped me find a realistic way of integrating the practice into my everyday life. I really liked the way the course was presented - clearly and methodically but with a good does of humour."
