Here’s what some students say:
The course gave a good, realistic view of all experiences that come up during meditation and techniques to handle them. Too quickly people were trying to get to a place where they were looking for a kind of a high or immediate deep peace from meditation. But the course clearly emphasizes the idea that difficult experiences and emotions can and do come up during meditation and that this can even be a very good thing!
Though I had some prior experience with meditation, this course has taken my meditation practice to an advanced level in a short span of time. The real difference is that while I was only focusing on Attention earlier, this course taught me to practice Attention with Awareness and this was a real game changer. Also the conscious moments exercise really helped increase mindfulness both in the meditation practice and in day to day life.
A definitely recommended course for everyone be it a beginner or already a meditator. I was able to reach a peaceful and calm state easily when doing meditation in the class than doing it at my home. Definitely doing meditation in the group helps a lot.
