TESTIMONIALS

Personally I almost always read reviews before I make a decision - whether it's a hotel, a toothbrush or something as life-changing as meditation!  So here's a round-up of what people are saying about Be. Modern Meditation.  As always, give me a shout if you have any questions.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BE.COURSE:

Sharon; Musician 

"I was stuck in a negative life pattern and trying to move forwards mainly away from a toxic relationship and behaviour. I was unhappy and self sabotaging and no matter my efforts, I couldn’t break free and move forwards. 

Having attended the ‘intro’ session I knew that meditation was exactly what I had been looking for. I really enjoyed and looked forward to the weekly sessions where Laura guided us gently through the journey with the right amount of meditation practicals and theory. I felt comforted and safe to really let go and immerse myself in the sessions. I learnt that connecting with my true self through meditation made my mind clearer and life more authentic. I was able to make decisions from a place of truth and ‘being’. 

My life has changed completely.  I found my way to the fresh start I had desperately been searching for previously. I would definitely recommend Be.Course. It’s a gentle, supportive approach to meditation and a wonderful act of self care allowing you to live an authentic life."

"I worked with Laura in a one to one over a few sessions. I really connected with her. I needed something to help me manage my life and meditation came along! 

I am able to cope with so much more and I feel a lot calmer. I don't react to situations as there is space to pause.

It has been quite life changing to be honest. The power of what she has taught me has changed me and my family are benefiting so much because of it.  I never realised the power of this tool before and it has transformed me."

Sarah; Director, Vinegar Hill 

Malcolm; Head of Operations

"I decided it was time to try something new and way out of my comfort zone so signed up for a meditation course with Laura. I am Mr Sceptic, especially around things like this, so it scares me to say that I will now meditate for the rest of my life….I can’t really get across how knowledgeable and cool Laura is, so best to try it and see!

In terms of changes that have occurred in my life since I began meditating, it’s difficult to really know for sure but if I was being braggy I would say that I appreciate smaller things more (like a sunrise or piece of music). I might even say that I care about people more too!! The sessions are part friends talking, part learning, a little bit of science and a lot of fun.

I now try and meditate every day but in reality probably manage 5 days out of 7. Keeping a regular rhythm/time helps me to meditate each day. When I do not do this I usually don’t fit it in.

If you’re considering learning to meditate I would say go for it - you might end up doing it for ever!"

Rich; MD Vinegar Hill

"I needed something in my toolkit to help me manage stress. Since starting meditation, I have begun to create space and have found myself much more capable of managing stress. I have more awareness and enjoyment of the small things and the detail in life.

I have learnt a huge amount in Laura’s sessions about meditation, the science surrounding it, the benefits and how to approach each of my mediation sessions. I have also learnt some fascinating concepts which go beyond just the mediation element of the program.

Laura is a great coach, who has set up a program which is extemely effective whilst being very enjoyable.

I now meditate regularly, at least 4 times a week and I am aiming for more. The benefits of meditating keep me going. If you’re thinking of trying it, go for it. You’ll be amazed at the positive impact it has on your life."

Elizabeth; Artist 

"I have been interested in learning meditation for a long time and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do it with Laura who is easy going, very knowledgeable and professional.

 

Since I’ve begun meditating, I have achieved a more balanced approach to my daily life mentally and practically. Our sessions are focused but relaxed. We do several meditations and talk about how to apply what we are learning to practical situations and the effects this will have. I have really enjoyed my meditation coaching and am looking forward to continuing further with what I have learnt .

 

I particularly like the loving kindness meditation and the noticing meditation. I do feel more relaxed after doing them. I have started meditating during the week, approximately 3 or 4 times. The meditation coaching has made me aware that I have a sense of well being afterwards and so it is becoming easier to make time to practice. I would recommend this meditation course. It will give you insights and techniques that help you in your daily life."

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BE.INTRO:

Julie:

"I have found myself feeling frazzled and a bit down lately so thought what is there to lose?  I was vaguely interested in meditation anyway but hadn't actually done anything about it!   

 

I felt very relaxed and comfortable in the session. I was apprehensive it may involve role playing etc (not my thing at all) so I was glad it didn't. It was pitched at the right level to spark my interest as something to seriously look into. I liked the fact that i didn't feel at all silly doing it.  

 

Since seeing Laura i have downloaded the Insight Timer app and have managed to meditate three days in a row.  My brain is still snowglobing all over the place but i'm only three days in and can't see me "getting bored as it's not working" - i think its something that i am naturally ready for now and am glad to have found it."

Anna:

 

"I found it really useful, it was good to get some background and knowledge around meditation itself as well as giving it a go. I felt like I really learnt something and it has inspired me to try and incorporate some meditation into my day. I enjoyed the way Laura explained things, it was clear and simple and made a lot of sense. She was friendly and open which made her relateable. When she said we were going to dive straight in and do a meditation I was a bit worried, but she really put me at ease and I felt comfortable giving it a go"

 

Harriet, :

 

"I have always been intrigued by the idea of meditation, though a little skeptical.The session was amazing! So straightforward but transformative. I love the idea that it is something that can take just 10 minutes and have such a powerful effect. I liked the fact that it was not related to or in conflict with any religion."

 

Kath:

 

"I've had it on my 'to do' list for around 25 years after a good friend (male) recommended that I would benefit from it.  I'd never found the right place and Laura, you inspired me and gave me the confidence to try. I liked that I'd finally managed to get there at last and felt welcome, safe and engaged througout."

 

Claire:

 

"I've heard a lot about mindfulness and was interested to find out more. The session was new for me, thought provoking, and it was surprising to feel results. Laura was natural, welcoming, easy, approachable, and positive. Give it a go, don't prejudge, open up your mind and body!"

"I was at the point in which.. I was pretty close -once again- to a burn out. The signals were all there: I felt I was surfing faster and faster across the ocean, all over the places. I was constantly on the edge, in the hated rushing doing mode, boosted by caffeine and sugar, massively struggling with sleep. No sense of meaning, no fullfilment, no happiness, and a lot of physical and mental exhaustion. 

 

I had in the past tried a number of techniques on my own but as I was unable to make significant steps forward fast enough, I dropped quickly. This time, I was fully aware that meditation was the solution and that I had to approach it in a different way, with the support of a coach.

 

My key objective was to address sleep but we went well far beyond! Laura is extremely knowlegeable and has the rare gift of explaining super complex concepts in simple powerful terms and images that I can easily grasp and elaborate further. Laura also taught me in each session practical techniques that were very beneficial, and super easy to fit in my daily routine. Very quickly, our sessions expanded into an invaluable in depth exploration of the inner self. Each session was mind blowing and I always ended each session with the full awareness of having added an important piece to my life's jigsaw.  

 

The results are impressive:  Thanks to Laura, I am definitely a more complete human being, much stronger mentally and physically, present in the moment and eventually aware that I've embarked on a precious journey that will never end!   

  

Looking back, reaching out to Laura has been one of the best gifts I ever had in life and I coudn't recommend her highly enough.  I had the privilege to meet Laura and work with her on my most important project: building a better self. Work still in progress ☺, Thank you Laura !"
