What participants say
“I have regularly attended Kate’s Thursday afternoon sessions which are perfectly timed towards the end of a busy week. I have found myself looking forward to each session and in fact when work pressures start to impinge, desperate not to miss them. Kate’s sessions are top-notch and a beacon of light in a raging sea of Zoom meetings and a barrage of emails/chats. Please bring Kate back.”
“The mindfulness sessions with Kate James being offered has been really useful to take a break from the hectic schedule at home. The breathing exercises have helped manage stress, and also focus on the task at hand. Overall, it has been great to have these sessions to talk about how we feel and how we handle our emotions through these techniques. Thank you for organising.”
“Every week I look forward to Kate’s gentle voice and her wealth of knowledge in this field. One of the skills I have taken away is self-compassion which I will practice from time to time. Hope to have Kate again for more mindfulness sessions.”
“Thanks for organising these sessions. I’m practising Buddhist meditation and studying theory for a long time but I enjoyed listening to Kate’s talks and explanations. She presented the content beautifully. Hopefully, people who participated will see the benefits and practice it continuously.”
