This is the best thing I’ve ever done…I think everyone should do this course…I’m telling everyone I meet…

Michael (2017)

I came to the course with no real idea of what to expect. I learned how to spend less time in my head, and listen to the quieter voices in my heart, which know better what’s really important to me…Karen, thank you so much, you are a wonderful facilitator.”

Angela (2017)

Karen, you’re an exceptional instructor, the quality of your instruction and the care you demonstrated are greatly appreciated… The course was life changing. There are very few moments in life that create significant shifts in your brain to bring balance to one’s life but this course offered this and a great deal more.

Sarah (2016)

I believe that MBSR is so important for one's should be promoted widely; in our schools, hospitals, workplaces...It should be shared with everyone. It has the potential to change the world.
