What People Say…….
“The pace of the session meant that we had time to reflect and to respond or not – I did not feel pressured to respond or have an opinion. The teacher developed a strong sense of union and support within the group which was embodied by respect and common humanity.”participant K.C.
“This was a very positive experience for me, allowing me to get to know myself on a deeper level.”
“I found the course thought provoking and emotionally provoking. I felt that experiences that were impacting on my life (even though I was not aware of the impact) surfaced and that I could process them in a supported environment. Through the teacher’s guidance I feel my compassion for myself and others growing and my judgement receding.”Participant A.T.
“A course that allows you to explore your own compassion, whilst learning a technique that is soothing and provides space and time to rest recover and restore.”
“I attended the course in the Autumn and it was the best i have participated in to date. Anna is a psychologist as well as a trained MSC teacher so it’s great value for money. I use the tools and strategies I learned for reducing stress, on a daily basis. It’s a life changer!”Participant E.P.
“I was quite surprised at how deep my sorrow goes. Not only from my current situation but trying to make sense of my previous journeys and now learning how to support myself through these in a sensitive and forgiving way.”
“I found the course to be meaningful and transformative and I reached a level of acceptance that I thought was beyond me.”Participant T.R.
“The course was held by Anna with a natural sapiential authority though this was never forced.”
