– “I am able to use the practices I have learned throughout the sessions to manage my anxiety on my own, without medication at times. I have learned to appreciate the ability to slow things down and refocus. There are so many options of practices to choose, taking a course like this helps narrow the options down so you get the most out of it.” (June 2021)
