“It was a revelation to see how powerful and beautiful can be the use of metaphors and stories to convey meaning. They cut through confusion like lots of words never could.” Dan
“I have no hesitations in recommending any one of the courses at Mindfulness CIC and their brilliantly led retreats. It will be the greatest gift you could give to yourself. It provided me with a safe and supportive environment in which to build my own Daily mindfulness practice. Professionally run and delivered with kindness, I’ve also found being part of their online community a great way to grow and inform my own practice.” Louise Woodgate
“I never realised that keeping teaching simple is what makes it effective. I couldn’t have imagined that the use of pauses and silence could have such an impact.” Ady
