"The list of things I got from mindfulness training is too long. The key things were being kind to myself and the very practical learning of how to manage pain and difficult experiences /situations. I also liked learning some of the theory and background details. Gus you are very clear and knowledgeable and you have a very sincere and caring approach to running the course. Thank you!"
