Thanks so very much for the exceptional BSoM teacher training you delivered! All aspects of the course, from the amazing venue and wonderfully positive atmosphere to the extremely high quality of the teaching and materials, contributed to a wonderful learning experience! The course itself was also very well planned, and I feel ready to offer my services as a meditation teacher, with an array of meditation techniques, good working knowledge of the science behind the health and wellness it brings, an understanding of the history and traditions and excellent advice on how to set up and run my own business!
I'm truly grateful that you've turned my passion into my profession: thank you from the bottom of my heart! (Jo Hemnant student MTTcourse Sept - November 2015)
'I thoroughly enjoyed my studies with the British School of Meditation, and found it very useful when starting my own meditation business. The sessions were fun and informative and professionally delivered. I would have no hesitation in recommending their course to anyone interested in teaching meditation.' Kathryn Buxton, BSoM graduate, 2012
An excellent and comprehensive meditation teaching course that provided all the theoretical, experiential and practical learning I needed to start teaching meditation. Lesson and business planning elements are included and I felt safe and confident with the tutors. A hugely enjoyable and useful course that I would recommend to any experienced meditator wanting to learn how to teach.
Mary Pearson's "Meditation: The Stress Solution" is an easy-to-read guide to bring meditation into your life. Mary's practical approach allows complete beginners to understand what mediation is all about. Mary takes you through simple-to-do practices including breathing, the use of mantras and visualisation that are great for anyone who has been scared off by the mystical or religious side of this practice. As an added bonus, these exercises are also on a CD that's included with the book. This book is a great way to begin your meditative practice. Jennie Bayliss, Red Dandelion
'I am a walking, living, breathing testimony of the power of meditation - it has supported me through the most challenging times of my life. I feel very blessed that I am on my path of truth. Thank you to Mary and Helen for your professional guidance and support. The course was really well structured and provided me with the necessary space to develop and deepen my daily personal practice. What a joy it will be to teach the gift of meditation and to promote its endless benefits for the mind, body and spirit; spreading love, happiness and peace within individuals, communities and throughout the world.' Ann Ward DipBSoM
What an amazing few days. Everything just came together so easily and that is all down to the high level of work you have put into this course. The feedback has been amazing; with people telling me it has been the best course they have ever been on. I feel that I teaching something which is of high quality. So thank you for asking me to be a part of it. Sarah Presley, BSoM Trainer, Bristol Centre.
Just want to express my appreciation again. Thank you so, so much! This is the best training I've ever attended. Both of you are so kind, patience and supportive! And the energy within the group was so perfect. I learnt so much, not only about meditation but also opened my eyes to the smart thinking and good nature in everyone! Tammy Yick, student on one of our training courses in 2013
'I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how very much I have enjoyed reading your book. I couldn't put it down, and found myself saying 'Yes, yes, YES!' many times, as your words beautifully encapsulate and convey precisely my own thoughts on meditation. I loved your practical, down to earth approach as well as your compassion and empathy. I think the selection of meditations are fantastic too, and an excellent variety. The CD has been well played here, and my husband has even commented on how relaxing the meditations sound. What an absolute gem of a book - thank you.' Annette Jeffrey, student on autumn 2012 course
Both of our teachers, Mary and Helen, are good examples of what happens when you bring meditation into your life. They are calm, warm and empathetic teachers. Because they are also grounded, practical, efficient and organised individuals they have been able to realise their dream of creating the British School of Meditation to train good teachers to ensure more people can attend meditation classes.’ Lesley O’Neill, student on the Meditation Teacher Course
“My surprise from the first class was that meditation is something that I CAN do. It is no longer the seemingly impossible task that only yogis or very spiritual people can do. Mary grounds the ideas of meditation in ways that are accessible to everyone and she has enabled me to meditate.” Cerys Williams
“I just wanted to say a big “thank you” for your wonderful Reiki Meditation Day. It was a lovely experience, and I really enjoyed learning some new meditations to use for myself and for my Reiki students.” Penelope Quest, Reiki Master Author
