“Emily’s course brought me home to my experience, and brought me a sense of peace and understanding. I have tried various helping and healthy pursuits over the years, most of which had something to offer. What was unique about MBSR with Emily was that it helped me get in touch with my body, and to trust and feel more comfortable in my own wisdom. Emily is gentle and perceptive, with a kind sense of humor. Her teaching helped direct me towards the teacher inside myself, and to answers that have been in front of me all along."
