"After years of listening to guided meditations I decided to attend the Mindfulness Meditation course. It was quite dramatically different from what I had encountered from the guided meditations I was used to. After the first class I was able to go progressively deeper into a meditative state of which I can now access on my own. All types of people attend the course - there is no stereotype as meditation helps us all, and Lisa ensures that everyone feels comfortable and encourages you to do things in your own time regardless of what others are doing."
