In short, Una’s MBSR course has changed the meaning of my life indefinitely. Una has been a fantastic instructor and has allowed me to go on a deep internal exploration of my mind, my emotions, my senses, my body and my soul. I cannot recommend this course highly enough because it has opened up a new world of applying mindfulness to every possible moment and living in full awareness.
