Mark Johnson - TTR2 Nov 2014
This course was enormously helpful for me professionally and personally. Bodhin and Kathy are very compassionate, knowledgeable and professional instructors. They create a very safe, nurturing atmosphere in which to learn and grow. They provide developmental feedback in a very caring , yet direct and matter-of-fact way. I highly recommend this course to any aspiring Mindfulness Instructor.
Testimonial from Randell S - TTR1 June 2013 M.D. at a Holistic Clinic in Norway
This course is highly recommended to anyone wishing to both deepen their own practice and prepare to teach others Mindfulness. The knowledge and teaching experience of the teachers is highly inspiring and enriching. The course fuses clear and structured teaching with informal group dialogue and ample opportunity for practice. I really appreciated the obvious preparation put into the course by the teachers and the beautiful setting at Solterreno Retreat Centre. My stay was a personal inspiration and renewal.
Testimonial from Christine - TTR1 May 2014
I liked the pace of the course. It is well organised with logical sequencing and developing progress. The right amount of time for discussion and questions. Availability of teachers for help or queries was on offer whenever needed. I really felt the teachers were fresh as if we were their first ever students even though they have taught this many times before. I felt inspired and supported. Both are patient with a good sense of humour.
