Tom Epler – Writer

Mindworks practice has helped me to discover space around my thoughts and emotions. I’m also learning to respond thoughtfully and not react habitually. The courses are nicely structured and are presented by a thoughtful, experienced, and diverse team of trainers. Mindworks is a very accessible way to establish, maintain, and deepen your practice.

Alice has greatly appreciated Mindworks courses

Alice Keech – Practice Assistant

Your team and your courses have changed mine and my family’s life for the better. I am truly humbled by how we have not only weathered some challenging situations but in the course of deepening our understanding of ourselves, we have come out the other side stronger than before. Thank you for showing me how to love life again; and even more so during challenging times.

The meditation practice is very freeing. I can just be where I am in the moment. In contrast to so many practices I’ve tried, it encompasses how to deal with emotions with a greater awareness of the human condition.

Mindworks has made a big difference in my life!
