  • I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 week course which has flown by. The weekly sessions and homework have been extremely helpful in starting me on my mindfulness/meditation journey. Really enjoyed the science behind how meditation effects the brain positively. Elizabeth (course leader) has been a pleasure to see every week with her positive, uplifting approach to us as a group and mindfulness as a whole. I shall miss our weekly sessions

  • This course has really helped me get perspective on my life and how I handle difficult situations. I think the fact that our group was small meant that each person was able to open up and feel like their views and feelings were fully considered. It was really well organised and covered loads of useful topics. Thank You.

It has made me more confident in being able to manage my daily life with a more realistic approach to my capabilities.
