i recently completed the 8 Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course with Ela Amarie and I have to give her 5 stars for my perception of her presence, intuition, responsiveness to the situ...ation and to the participants, and loving compassion. I highly recommend this course and even though I have been meditating for years and was doing this as part of a training for a Mindfulness in Education training, I personally benefitted from following the structure that has lots of empirical data to back it.
