ATTENDEES OF THE 8 WEEK COURSES
'I wasn’t sure what to expect from a mindfulness course - but I was curious to explore how it might help me to deal with every-day life more effectively.
Sam’s eight-week MBSR Course was a complete revelation to me. After every session I came away feeling re-energised and calmer.
I developed a whole new way of thinking about how to approach every-day situations and I learnt practical tools and breathwork techniques that have now become a way of life for me.
I recognised that I needed to be kinder to myself. And I even confounded the cynics in my family by embracing the benefits of a silent retreat day. Sam is a wise and pragmatic mindfulness practitioner and I look forward to my top-up sessions just to keep reminding myself to keep everything in perspective.'
‘I attended Sam’s MBSR course as I am a busy, working mum, rushing from one thing to the next and never feeling as if I was doing anything properly. I suffer from migraines and anxiety and wanted something to support me with this. Sam’s sessions helped me understand why I have been feeling the way I have and also that I am not alone! I now meditate most days for about 20 minutes and if I miss a day I really feel it! The support I received from both Sam and the other course attendees has been fantastic and we are still in touch months later.
The highlight of the course was the silent retreat which was amazing – I felt like I had woken up to my senses and what was around me. I have also recently attended Sam’s refresher session which was a lovely reminder of what I had learnt on the course and a way of resetting my mindset again’
