“Thanks to this [MBSR] class the body scan, breathing, and mindful movements have become new routines to take care of myself.
Meditation makes me feel like I have found the “pause button” that allows me to be in the moment and escape the constant anticipation that occupies so much of our brain.
The techniques taught have given me the keys to better manage stressful situations, to apprehend them in a way that allows me to reduce the suffering they cause (irritability, chronic pain), to accept them and to take a step back.
Neil’s accompaniment in learning the different meditation techniques was perfect, he knew how to find the right balance between practice and exchange, he shared his knowledge with us, he listened to us and gave us a lot of food for thought on meditation and on our behaviours in our modern society.
In my opinion, Neil has all the qualities sought after when one calls upon a guide from MBSR: he is calm, attentive and reassuring.
He knew how to create a benevolent framework where judgment had no place and he gave us keys to put words to our feelings and emotions.
A big thank you to Neil for these 8 very rewarding weeks!”

“MBSR helped me to relativise [sic] my daily situations at the office and at home. Analyse and realise what is important enough to worry about.”

“I had my initial doubts, and I can be cynical, but this [MBSR] course proved to be a very good investment. I learned not only useful coping techniques but how to recognise times when I need them and how to effectively put into practice. Helped my stress levels… I thoroughly recommend this course.”
