"Thank you so much for the on-line drop-in meditation sessions. I have benefitted from the sessions you have led since the very beginning of the lockdown period....The virtual classes are so well-run that I feel I almost prefer them to more traditional classes. They have really helped to manage the anxiety associated with both the total lockdown and the more recent easing & increased exposure outside the home environment."
