A Few Comments People Say About This Workshop
“The way Allen explains the purpose behind the action repositions the practice of meditation from “that’s weird” to “why aren’t they teaching this in schools?”. He adds personal stories that show his vulnerability. His stories make me feel normal and combat doubt about my abilities. Allen cares.”
“This class gives you the foundation for many different types of meditation and Allen explains each so well. You get enough info and practice to then experiment with yourself to see what works for you.”
“Wonderful ability to convey the meaning and practice of mindfulness. Gives everyone the feeling he is speaking to you. He cares about his students being able to benefit and enhance their lives with this practice.”
“The class contains a lot of useful information and Allen is a gifted teacher. His teaching style is very methodical and interactive. He always makes time for questions and makes sure that the students are understanding the information he is sharing.”
“I really enjoyed the workshop from what it brought to my life. It was aptly timed, as I needed to learn a way to handle stress from work/life (even before Covid-19). After having gone through both sessions, I feel that everyone I know should participate in a mindfulness workshop and adopt a meditation practice.”
“This series has been AMAZING. THANK YOU, ALLEN. I see how developing a practice can make life more fulfilling.”
“This has been a fantastic experience for me. I’m getting better every week at making this part of my daily ritual. I very much appreciate your work! Thank you!”
“I cannot express how much I enjoyed these classes with you – calmness and community in uncertain times.”
“I have been meditating for over 4 years, but have never taken a course. Finding Inner Peace provided me with new concentration and breathing techniques, which have strengthened my daily practice.”
“It’s very well presented and taught. There’s plenty of practice, opportunities to ask questions, and a weekly follow-up email which summarizes the main points covered for the week’s lesson.”
