A selection of reviews of our events, talks and meditations
David – This talk has been profoundly helpful to my practice. I come back and listen to it every month or so to be reminded of its deep dharma.
EeeEssGee – Nicely guided with gentle, unobtrusive reminders to redirect attention to the breath. I have never heard another teacher explain so clearly how to handle thoughts during meditation. It is a refreshing and welcoming perspective. Thank you!
Janell Karyn – Very peaceful, no pressure just allowing what is. I really enjoyed it.
Iriedawta – Loved this talk and only wish that I had found it months ago. Thank you.
Phil – I always struggled with the instruction of “watching my thoughts”. This talk clarifies so many things for me. Thank you!
Tom – Loved it. Uncomplicated guide to being present. For me, this is what meditation is all about
Mike – Terrific. Maybe the best guided meditation I’ve done yet. Loved the combination of internal and external focus. Thanks!
Bryony – Felt like effortless time, minutes turned to seconds. Great techniques and pace, thank you.
Flo – Very organised, very accessible, very recommended. I liked the place, the teaching and the group atmosphere.
Robin – Lovely evening. Lovely meditations by Stephen. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Heather – Good for beginners to know these things, (and experienced practitioners to re-remember) as there are many misconceptions about what mindfulness is and what is “supposed” to happen. This teacher knows what he’s talking about. Great!
David – Loved this. A kind of jujitsu of mindfulness – instead of letting go of thought through the effort of focusing on a meditation object like the breath he recommends accepting thought along with breath, accepting sounds and the space you’re in rather than the subtle judgement in the tendency to ignore or reject these things.
Andie – Just what I needed to hear! Now I can stop being so hard on myself when my mind wonders during meditation Thank you! Will listen to this daily.
