What previous delegates have said

"I am calmer, don't react as much as I used to and am less aggressive (sometimes)!"

"I have become more willing to expose my vulnerability. less judgmental of myself and others"

" I learned more about myself, my feelings and being in touch or acknowledging them also about my own vulnerability and pain - being able t observe the emotions and becoming acutely aware of my inner critic"

"I learned to feel safe & "just be" with my emotions - breathing has helped me accept the emotion"

"These are essential skills for living - I and less self-critical and more patient with external things"

“I don’t struggle now as the mindfulness journey I am on is so rich and compelling. I still have issues and some compulsive/ co-dependent behaviors to deal with which are underlying addictions. But by practicing mindfulness I am now able to bring these into acute awareness, gradually become the observer of them and so begin to let them go.”

“ Mindfulness is absolutely beneficial. It provides a new way of living which brings considerably more joy and fulfillment than any drug could. It is also a tool for life, enabling me to manage stress and difficult situations in a much more effective way.”

“I also appreciate the ordinariness of life. The magic of reality. And that other people are interesting. Less judgmental, more open-minded. Loving kindness towards others is much more rewarding, although it sounds cheesy. I have not mastered loving kindness to myself, yet, however. A long journey still to travel. “

“ I think the skill and character of the facilitator is as important as the philosophy. I have found that being able to attend weekly sessions with recovering addicts, which are professionally facilitated, is essential for me.”

“The awareness you have of how negatively we treat ourselves, what we project on others and situations because of our addiction is so powerful. I am not a deeply religious person, but I am a spiritual person and I’ve found that the Mindfulness practices and support group help me to ground myself in that belief. The practices are achievable and they have a meaningful difference the more you engage with them.”

“I remember my intention in the loving-kindness meditation practice is to feel loved and to connect because I felt a hole and loneliness and I remember feeling this feeling of warm glowing amber in my chest and just feeling completely connected and loved and coming out of that practice I was so proud to be alone.”

“Some of the words for the compassion meditation I have now incorporated into my daily prayers which I do regularly. The compassion meditation itself was very hard at first.......my resistance to give compassion to most people......so I chose my cats......but also to myself was incredibly hard. I could always see myself as this dirty unwashed unkept child who hides away from the compassion and love. She still does actually - she is a little more curious though almost as if she is peering out now to see what it's all about this "this love and compassion."

“I am now able to express my thoughts and feelings honestly without fear and not anticipate disaster”

"It was valuable bring able to come into a safe space as a codependent and learn I am not the only one”

“The weekly reading and exercises were so relevant to my life”

"One of the most enriching and beneficial course I have done in a very long time – a refresher will be a good idea”

"I learnt to take care of myself by putting boundaries in place”
