“this course took my understanding, my personal practice and my teaching to a whole new level. I feel that I now have not only direct personal experience of how mindfulness can transform our experience of the world around us but that I also have the knowledge and skills to introduce others to the benefits of mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion for others. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to incorporate these elements into their professional practice. It was well taught, well organised and well worth the money”  ~ Lindsey
