"I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 mindfulness week course led by Malka. The atmosphere in the class was very welcoming, and I enjoyed interacting with a diverse group of people as we went on our mindfulness journey together! Malka is an extremely warm, caring and genuine leader. She is passionate about the subject and showed a genuine interest in leading us all to a more mindful state. The tools and techniques I learned have already helped me approach every day with a different mindset. With increased and ongoing practice, I hope to continue to see even more results."

"Over the years I have done meditation semi-regularly and attended some workshops. I found that being with other people was helpful in restarting my practice and that is what I needed at this time.  I saw the announcement of this course the day of the first meeting.  I thought that it would be a meditation group and that suited me just right. Malka and I discussed what this program offered and though I wasn’t really keen about some of the activities related to mindfulness this program was at the right time, convenient location and had meditation so I signed up and started in week two.  I liked the size and composition of the group (about 11) and ages from 26-75, equal numbers of male and female. Over the last 7 weeks not only did I begin and continue a meditation practice but also found value in the readings and talks that Malka provided.  It was a special experience to talk in small groups with others sharing learning (once more) how important individual communication is or identifying parts of ourselves that make up our whole selves.  The climate was of acceptance with plenty of laughing and appreciation for one another present.  At the end of 7 weeks I feel ready to continue my meditation practice and maintain the feelings of joy and happiness each and every day. Thank you Malka."
