Hello Susann, I am writing to give you a little update on my mindfulness practice. I keep practising every day. After 11 years of trials I finally managed to get off antidepressants. That is quite amazing. MBCT was one of the crucial things that enabled me to do this. Thank you for what you are doing...

quotation marks I think mindfulness is a very difficult thing to understand and practise, particularly in the early stages. Without a good teacher it would be very easy to get lost and confused in your mindfulness practice. Your teaching was fantastic. You made it easy to understand and broke the process down into manageable stages. It is clear that you have a deep understanding of mindfulness and MBCT...

quotation marks Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful introduction to meditation course yesterday. I found the whole experience to be enlightening and re-vitalizing, and it has definitely sparked my interest in meditation. I have already recommended it to several of my friends...

quotation marks London Meditation provides a valuable space for people to experience and appreciate meditation. It accommodates beginners and experienced meditators and provides everyone the opportunity to be centered and in the moment – something that the busy urban life makes very difficult for most of us...

quotation marks Thanks again for creating such a beautiful space in the middle of London...

quotation marks I feel this Urban Retreat Day, in conjunction with the MBCT course, really helped me achieve some mini break-throughs, some real "firsts" for me: managed not to have too many expectations of the day; "think – feel – I don’t mind what happens"; switch of my thoughts (particularly negative ones for a few minutes); felt safe "to let go" just a little bit for a few moments; be okay with me in silence; not be too hard on myself; felt quite peaceful & centred. These may only sound like small things and I have still so much work to do on myself, but experiencing this even just for a short while was a big deal for me. Susann, you so often managed to say just the right thing at the right time...

quotation marks Please don’t change a thing! What an amazing day, one I will keep close to my heart and mind forever. Thank you!

quotation marks Susann is an exceptional and patient teacher, who is able to inform and inspire in an organised and accessible way. I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to be calm, learning how to stop, learning how to be in the moment. A brilliant learning experience!

quotation marks Thank you so much for the MBCT course – I got so much out of it and its definitely the start of long term commitment to mindfulness practice for me. Its been going well over the past few weeks and I’ve been managing to fit around 30 minutes a day of formal meditations and do regular breathing spaces during the day. I’ll definitely be back in touch with you in the future to attend practice groups and over the coming months/years will definitely undertake the MBSR course at London Meditation.

quotation marks Thank you so much for your lovely workshop on Sunday. It was a great reminder of mindfulness and really set me on the right path to get through this week. I sailed through a morning of prodding, poking and waiting at the hospital yesterday.

I love your facilitating, you are able to create a really calm and peaceful environment and it was great to be able to actually meditate again – I literally thought I was unable to do it at this point in my life. I was probably just trying too hard!

The workshop was great – just the right blend of action and inaction, I wasn’t bored at all. It was also a great reminder of how we create our own suffering as everything that has happened to me so far is due to my reaction to other people’s statements, as there is nothing physically (or mentally) wrong with me at the moment. Even looking around the room, I could see that many people were in a lot more pain than me and I really felt for them. At the end of the day no physical pain (that I have ever experienced) compares to the mental anguish we are capable of creating for ourselves.

I am glad my intuition has led me back to you at this time, and hope to join the weekly sessions in a few weeks...

quotation marks I had a really great experience this morning. I was worrying a lot and feeling very anxious but actually stopped, took a deep breath and – I’m not quite sure how – but managed to shift my perspective from one of being very negative to just being in the moment and feeling as if everything was the way it was meant to be. Immediately after this I started to notice how beautiful the day was, sunny, quiet. I went into my garden and just let the sun warm my face. It didn’t last long – but even that was ok! I think I had a ’mindful moment’...

quotation marks Dear Susann, I wanted to say thank you for today, I am really happy that for whatever reason Mindfulness has come into my life. You really make the time feel so worthwhile and I feel a sense of relief that I am on this journey. It makes so much sense even though I know how hard I am going to have to work my mind. I am looking forward to the next 2 weeks and the challenges that have been set. I felt I had to let you be aware of my gratitude...

Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
