    Jane is a gentle, warm facilitator who shared her knowledge and experience graciously and passionately. I knew I’d love it and I was not disappointed. My meditation practice is re-kindled and more self care xx

    Meditation: The course was really great. Jane has such a lovely calm presence and created a safe feeling space. Half way through the course, I suddenly felt I could make the changes I’ve wanted to make for so long and felt so much more confident and calmer.

    Gratitude Workshop: So wonderful. Just lovely. My heart feels full and encouraged, and abundant. I took lots of notes which I’ll enjoy reading over and remembering.

    Loved this course so much that I am doing it again! Jane has a depth of knowledge and is a gentle teacher who is clear about what mindfulness- based meditation is and is not. This course really changed my scattered practice into a daily discipline. So grateful.
