I wanted to thank you for your track on Happify. I have been looking for a good guided meditation and yours is really great.
I appreciate all the effort that went into your guided meditations. I find them instructional and very nurturing (-:
Good morning Kate,
I wanted to thank you so much for everything. The last 10 weeks have changed me, my life, my way of thinking and I am a much better person because of you and taking the MBSR course. THANK YOU!! I had no idea what to expect when I walked in the first night. After the first night, I realized that this was going to be so out of my comfort zone, so it was definitely something I had to do. The all day class, was one of the best days I have ever had–never knew silence could feel so good.
I was so sad last night that class was done. I had heard that the last class was hard–just didn’t realize how hard it was going to be. My brother and SIL took the course last year, but they didn’t share much with me, as they wanted it to be my own experience. Last night, my brother was at bell practice at Holy Family, right upstairs, so I stopped in to see him after class, and he said he felt the same way during the last class–he brought a poem and a song to read and couldn’t make it through the poem without breaking down. Thank you for helping me through my struggles!!! THANK YOU!!!
I would like to remain on your e-mail list.
Kate, I hope in the future, I am in one of your classes again! You are AWESOME!! Thank you for all you shared.
Hope you have a great day
all my best,
Thanks for a truly wonderful experience. I feel this class will resonate with me for years to come and you were a large part of that experience. I will admit when I heard about the large number of people in the class, I was concerned, to the point of contemplating withdrawing.
I decided that the instructor would make or break the class in how they managed so many people with so many opinions, questions, preconceptions and raw emotions that emerge in a class like this.
You did so effortlessly, while adding your own humour and insight as thoughts, questions and emotions came and went around the class room.
So thank you for being you and bringing true mindfulness into my reality.
Please keep me on your email list and let me know of any updates. If you ever teach a graduate class in the next 6 months or longer please let me know.
The last class someone read a poem about expectations and importance, she read it twice. I really liked it if you have a copy could you please forward it on to me.
Thank you so much for all of the tools you’ve given me. I feel much more equipped to go into this crazy world. I’ll make sure to keep my tool-belt stuffed with great mindful insights and compassionate thoughts. Collin
Your insight, kindness and good humor truly made the MBSR course experience exceptional and life changing! Joan
This course has been a balm and a wonderful expander. The practices have helped enormously at work and home, being in one place at a time, doing one thing at a time; pausing, scanning and breathing when the mind seizes up- and coming back 3 minuets later able to re-engage. Melissa
“I have learned to go to sleep when I am tired. A lifelong struggle to do this resulting in anger at myself and exhaustion. I have learned to stop eating before I feel full. Basically this class has helped me to experience my life in a way that is more connected.” Anonymous
Sometimes people will assume that yoga is only for the flexible and the fit but yoga really means yoking the mind and body together and, we could add, doing so in a compassionate way. There are really many more parts to yoga than just the postures or asanas. There are ethical disciplines, and also breath work, called pranayama, and meditation and concentration. Yoga is not meant to be a competitive venture, rather an exploration into one’s self.
If you are interested in a group class or an individual session to tailor a practice to your specific needs please contact Kate to arrange.
