I had the pleasure of studying with Mindfulness in Australia and completed their 8 weeks Mindfulness Facilitator Training certification including the 2 day live workshop.
Having studied several mindfulness courses I was looking for something more comprehensive, I must say this was the best training I have done this far. The course content was clear, concise and leading edge. Rita as a facilitator is approachable and knowledgeable. The sheer amount of resources provided with the course sets you up for success and has been a huge asset to my business”.
