The majority of people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits.

Each session is two and a half hours in duration with a full day of practice taking place too.
“Even before smart phones and the Internet, we had many ways to distract our selves. Now that’s compounded by a factor of trillions…”- Jon Kabat-Zinn
