Read what previous class participants are saying about their experience
I came to class because I needed to practice with a group. "I enjoy my practice. I have tools to use throughout the day and the rest of my life" Gayle G. "Lisa did a wonderful job teaching and helping me learn to actually practice mindfulness. I always felt safe in the class. The environment was very welcoming." Eric S. I know now that life can be lived one day at a time, Alive, Aware, and trying to be thoughtful (mindful) as much as possible. Scott S. "I really enjoyed the supportive nonjudgemental environment" Amy B. "The classes helped me so much to deal with a hard time. It gave me additional tools and perspective to cope and manage stress." M. F. "I have learned a lot, I have learned that a given experience is temporary and I have an increased calm." A.S. "I am a part of something bigger than me. I am whole and not broken. My heart is healed" K.W. "I can now meditate 30 min a day and eat mindfully" "I am healing faster and more completely" "I have more present moment awareness of choices and thoughts. I have created a sense of presence and calm in my body, and the ability to catch myself before I lose it" C.A. "I have been able to approach stressful situations with a new calm. I'm able to hear unexpected news without my world crumbling. It is so refreshing to start to feel normal." J. H "A little over year ago, I had extensive spinal surgery. Two weeks after my surgery my husband died suddenly, and I had to move. All this stress triggered an autoimmune flare up with extreme systemic inflammation. I have been doing MBSR for about a month, and it is helping to control the inflammation." D.B. I feel I can control my stress. I find myself in control rather than reacting in negative ways" D.J. "I no longer just react. I am more grounded and relaxed" W.P. "I have more peace and calm, less chatter in my mind. I have deeper rest, increased creativity & confidence" D.H.
