“The instructor and the workbook were excellent! I liked that the course was 9 weeks in length because it needed to be for a full understanding and use of mindfulness techniques and reflections.”

“I think mindfulness will help me pause before reacting in my interactions with others. I also feel it will help me to be more aware and grateful. I believe it will help me to focus on my values and live with purpose.”
