MBSR Testimonials

 

"The MBSR program is one of the most eye-opening and awakening experiences. To be aware, to be awake, to show up and just be. This program has encouraged me to fall head over heels in love with myself, for all that I am. This program has taught me that the only 'role' I should be playing is ME, unapologetically and lovingly me. There's no need to hide behind a façade, but instead always show up and be yourself." -- V. Medeiros, Swansea, MA (participant in Fall 2017)


"Thank you again for enlightening me to embrace all the pleasant and unpleasant events in my life. I’ve had several situations since your class that before your teachings, I would have just reacted and defended. But now, I just accept and acknowledge. I still have my moments so it’s a work in progress but it was you who brought meditation into my daily life and it has helped me greatly at home and at work. So again, thank you, I am truly grateful to carry this gift into 2018 and the years ahead." -- C. Trezon, New Bedford, MA (participant in Fall 2017)


"The MBSR program with Jessica has been amazing. I have found that the practice of noticing has appeared in many aspects of my life, from communicating with family and children, to listening more deeply to my clients at work. Carving our time each day to notice has had measurable effects on my experience of life stress and allowed me to more successfully practice a pause before reacting. It was truly a transformative experience." -- R. Lyons, Dartmouth, MA (participant in Fall 2017)


"[Jessica's] mentoring and teaching approach allowed me to accomplish the goals I set at the beginning of class. I was aware of much of what we covered, but now have a much deeper understanding. Thank you." -- B. Lawrence, Rochester, MA (participant in Fall 2017)


"MBSR has increased my self-compassion, love, creativity, and intuition. Jessica brings the teaching alive through her skillful guidance." -- J. Wing, Dartmouth, MA (participant in Fall 2017 and Summer 2015)


"It was a privilege to navigate this 8-week course under the unfailing guidance of Jessica Webb. Jessica provides the tools, compassion, encouragement and kindness that you will need throughout this engaging and life-altering experience. As you will discover, there is no pressure to do anything, or be anything, other than who you are at this moment." -- G. Sotomayor, Newport, RI (participant in Spring 2107)


"My intention in taking this course was to re-establish and strengthen my personal meditation practice. Now, with the eight weeks behind me, I feel like I've succeeded in that goal. I've also noticed that through this 8-week commitment to practice, and to myself, that I feel more in tune with the nuances of my practice and my day. I've begun noticing the subtle drives and urges behind my actions, and that noticing has given me a little breathing space, allowing myself a moment to more mindfully choose my reaction. I feel incredibly grateful to you, Jessica, for this opportunity to become more at ease with myself. Your humor, kindness and non-judgmental approach was the space I needed to find my place in these practices and to make them my own." -- R. Whitworth, Newport, RI (participant in Spring 2017)


"The gift of the MBSR course is to become more aware of the present. Jessica's support and guidance provided a foundation to build a daily practice of mindfulness. This course was a great reminder to slow down and breathe. Thank you for a wonderful presentation to this life-long practice." -- K. Clark, East Greenwich, RI (participant in Spring 2017)


"We appreciate so much your allowing us to take this class when we otherwise wouldn't have been able to. We looked forward to our Thursday evenings spent together more and more every week. We have taken so much from your teaching and enthusiasm and your words. We will miss the after-class car ride conversations, reflecting on life and how it related to what we learned in class. We are forever grateful for the safe space you created for us." -- Scholarship Recipients, Taunton, MA (Spring 2017)
