I have so far participated in two workshops at Mindfulness at Centrepointe and cannot wait to do more! I was touched by how caring, knowledgeable and understanding all the facilitators were. I gained practical tips for everyday life which I can apply to be more present with my family, be better prepared to face challenges of my demanding career, and enjoy this journey.

Centrepointe is very lucky to have such a center. I attended an introductory session and was so impressed with what I learned I signed up for a nine week course. Already I can see that I will benefit in ways I could not have imagined. The instructors are passionate, caring, and knowledgeable. So far I have had lessons from Carole, Sabina and Raman. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't benefit from learning mindfulness."

I absolutely loved this nine week course.  I learnt many things.  It is a combo of mindfulness, yoga and meditation along with tutorials.  I have left with compassion and a greater loving sense of self, courage and healthful attitude towards life.  I would thoroughly recommend this course and it's staff welcoming, warm and caring.  Thank you for a day at a time.

I just finished Carole's meditation classes and wanted to let you all know that it was a wonderful experience filled with compassion, understanding and patience. One most obvious and soul touching element was the holistic community aspect. To address one of the must crucial needs of a human life in a positive manner is very inspiring. It is extremely encouraging. Carole is a splendid teacher; very patient, loving and has deep understanding of the intricacies of human life. I am grateful for the experience. Thank you for providing a pure and loving network.
