What people are saying
"The training with Patrizia and Helen was truly fantastic! I loved having 2 such experienced teachers leading the course. I felt I learned about mindfulness and meditation much more in depth, and I also gained some practical knowledge on how to lead and faciliate groups. After the training, I felt very confident in my ability to teach mindfulness and have built up a great online business around it, including leading 8 week MBCT group programs. The venue was also gorgeous; very peaceful and quiet, yet extremely welcoming.I would absolutely recommend this course - it's perfect for anyone who wants to become a professional mindfulness teacher or add mindfulness to their list of skills in their current role.”
