What do others say about this course?
“This course was wonderful! I learned a lot about mindfulness. I’ve continued practicing everyday with the techniques I learned. I live in America. I was willing to get up at 330am. It was that good.”
“My whole life I’ve been struggling with my ‘monkey mind’ and self doubt. It controlled my life. During this 10-week course I have learned so much, and so fast, about how to become the observer of my thoughts. More and more I’m able to create mindful energy at any moment of the day. I feel more calm, more love, more aware. I’m very grateful that I had the opportunity to join this course. And thankful for Niels being such a great teacher and putting all this effort in making this knowledge accessible for me/us/others. You rock Niels!”
