“I very much appreciated the online course went on for 8 weeks, it was the right length of time for me to change my old habits and integrate the mindfulness practices, it is like training at the gym, you may feel like is too much, but when I keep at it, I can feel the benefits. It takes effort but it’s worth it. On a practical note, I found the course was organised and facilitated well and it was easy to motivate myself to follow the practices. ~ Mike

Retired, -seeking support with stress and anxiety about travel sickness and chronic pain.
“I found the online 8-week course very beneficial in many respects. It helped me to find the joy of life. When I go for a walk now, I can feel my feet walking on the ground and take in the flowers, the sky, notice the smells and am aware of the birds’ songs. Before the course it was not like this. I did not make time for any of that. It helped me to listen to my senses not just my thoughts and preoccupations. A big thank you”

I found the 8-week course very well-structured and taught. I found all the meditations helpful. I am able to befriend “unwanted thoughts” and be more at peace which feels good.
