Being in the school has changed my life in every aspect. I used to be so sensitive to other people’s comments about me. Now I just let them go and see things as they are. - Clare
The simple exercises presented in the course have really changed my life. Just learning to rest in the present moment eliminated a ton of stress from my life, and has certainly improved my relationships and sense of well-being. - Josh
This course is the best thing I have done for myself in years. I absolutely love the knowledge and the peace of mind I have gained. I can't express how much it is worth doing. Everyone should do this course.
