“Thank you again for the weekend. I enjoyed it very much – it was refreshing and invigorating as well as calming. You thanked us at the end for the opportunity to share mindfulness with us and this is how it felt to me – you were sharing your experience and t philosophy behind it rather than lecturing us or giving superficial “tips”.”

“Suryacitta introduced us to how the practice of mindfulness leads to a quiet cumulative experience of inner peace, resilience and the first steps to finding the happiness we have buried within ourselves. Finding and living in happiness is a continuous life-long exercise, and only an effective and advanced teacher can instill the faith needed to sustain and enjoy the journey. Suryacitta was that teacher, and I am grateful for the experience. I would recommend Suryacitta’s course and book to anyone who have genuinely realised there is an immediate and important need for compassion and happiness to pervade their lives. May you be kind, and may you be happy.”

“When a colleague of mine arranged a small group mindfulness meditation sessions with Suryacitta, I had no idea what to expect. As a medical professional, however, I was quite curious about what could be on offer to help with everyday life stressors. This continued weekly for further 6-8weeks and provided another perspective on my approach to life and other people around me. Each session lasted around 1 hour facilitated by himself who was open, non-judgemental and knowledgeable. He had written a book on the subject, which I found extremely honest and easy to read and follow. The sessions were unbelievably simple and practical consisting of discussion among the group and mental and physical practices.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the course, it has proved to be very helpful. A week ago I had emergency spinal surgery, the op went well, I was home on Saturday and I’m sore, I can move around some but I can’t start physio for 4 weeks and can’t drive for 6 wks or sit longer than 30 minutes for 6-8 weeks.  It’s all good though and what you taught me has proved invaluable and really helped with the pain management to date. I did two mindfulness meditations in hospital each day I was in, including just before surgery and doing them all allowed me to avoid most of the painkillers.  Painkillers don’t suit me chemically anyway but it meant I managed not to take any before the op, and that meant the wound bled less and so started healing up more quickly.  So many, many thanks again, I owe you one, at least.”

“If you’re a counsellor or psychotherapist and are looking at increasing your presence in the therapeutic relationship, and/or also developing your own self-care I would highly recommend attending this mindfulness course led by Suryacitta.  I’ve learnt to spend more time in the present rather than worrying about the future, or ruminating on the past which is a highly valuable skill in today’s busy and stressful society.  This course is professionally run, with useful resources, and Suryacitta illustrates points with a wealth of examples from his experience and personal practice.”
