Thoughts from our participants

I came to this course to be a healthier caregiver, but I am leaving a happier caregiver.

Words fail for the presenter and experience. Very valuable guidance. I will continue to breathe in and out, and endeavour to move closer in compassion to the suffering around me. Thank you.
