Here's what some recent participants had to say about MBCT/Boston:
"I have a better understanding of how to get myself out of bad spots that lead to deeper depression."
"Having had the experience of mindfulness as a direct result of taking this class, I absolutely found that I was able to back away from confrontation more easily. I also found it easier to listen to people talk about really hard feelings without getting absorbed in their reality. And I feel like I'm doing a better job taking care of myself by practicing mindfulness, which is helpful to my self-esteem."
"Realizing how rarely I feel satisfied -- in my mind, life is never good enough because I need a better job, a better couch, my daughter's going to choose the wrong classes at college, and so on and so on. Mindfulness gives me a break from that perpetual dissatisfaction."
"I always feel better when I do the mindfulness exercises. The emphasis on just being aware has really helped."
"This group has enabled me -- or propelled me -- to start a regular mindfulness meditation practice. Also, I never understood before how to deal with anxiety or anger in a more mindful way. So learning how to just be aware of or even turn toward strong emotions has been helpful."
