MBSR has turned my life around 180 degrees. I have learned to be “present” in the moment, to be responsive instead of being reactive, and to find stillness in chaos. To have access to someone in our own community who can make such an impact is amazing. Micki Fine has all of the ingredients that make her a great teacher: extensive knowledge and experience, passion for her subject matter and a kind, caring, generous heart. I have attended other types of MBSR trainings, some taught by nationally recognized leaders, and I can honestly say that I have learned more from Micki than all of the others combined.
I began Micki’s class having just suffered a personal loss. Her class helped me to acknowledge and accept my grief, move through it and regain a peace of mind that had been illusive for a long time.
Taking the 8 week MBSR course with Micki has enhanced our lives in ways we could not have imagined. Not only have we found practices to help us with recurring pain, but we have benefited from enjoying more of the moments in each day. We looked forward to each class and continue to implement what we learned. Micki is a skilled and thoughtful teacher. We are forever thankful.
Mindfulness has helped me deal with a life-limiting chronic disease with greater strength and resilience. There is so much more I want to say because mindfulness, and you, have been so important to me. It might sound hyperbolic but it’s not an exaggeration to say that mindfulness probably has saved my life.
