I was drawn to Mindfulness at the end of 2018 and went on to complete the 8 week MBSR course at the beginning of 2019. I cannot speak highly enough of the course teacher, Nel, and her gentle, compassionate, professional and friendly approach to the teaching of the course. We were a small group and this allowed us to develop a greater understanding of each other, in safe and relaxed surroundings. I would strongly recommend attending the MBSR course under Nel’s leadership, to anyone who is interested in living a calmer, more joyous and ultimately less stressful life on a day-to-day basis. This was just the start of my mindfulness journey!
Shortly after completing the 8-week MBSR course I attended the 4-week Advanced Mindfulness Course, again under Nel’s expert tuition and leadership. I was eager to enhance the experience I had during the 8-week course and was not disappointed! We had many in-depth group discussions and developed a greater understanding of the techniques we could take forward into our everyday lives to enable us to cope, in a more positive way, with life’s many challenges. In addition to my regular daily practice, I continue to attend monthly Mindfulness Practice Group sessions at the Centre.
