Sincere thanks for your teachings and gentle style on transforming stress.  It was challenging to slow down at first, but with each day, your gentle messages simmered and layered into me ...  I enjoyed your "slow cooking" teaching technique.  And amazing, my daughter, Gillian, took the initiative to set up a meditation spot in her living room!  Small steps...

I feel blessed having been able to attend your course. I do feel I am being more open and conscious of how I carry myself about my day. I feel more connected and self aware than I was before my trip and my attitude has shifted too. My commute is going well - I am more conscious of when it starts to negatively affect me and I close my eyes and think about the beach that day while breathing slowly to release the tension from my jaw.
