“Mike is a fantastic teacher with such an easy and comfortable manner that invited me to relax and enjoy the experience. The ‘quiet time’ on the first day was such a powerful exercise – I also found the practical exercises and introduction to meditation really useful.  I feel renewed.  It’s the best course I’ve been on.”
