“Mindfulness retreat - Sensational!”

I learnt so much about how meditation and mindfulness work and small changes I can make to improve how I experience my life.

“Wonderful!”

Fantastic programme of mindfulness and meditation all grounded in science- not new age fluff.

I've gained some marvellous techniques

The mindfulness retreat course was great and provided me with some fantastic tools to help me become more aware and able to relax and destress.

“Inspirational”

I have just experienced a Mindfulness Course at Billabong and found the combination of science and thousands-of-years-old yoga and meditation practice so appropriate for where I am at now.

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEW: Tracy D

EI is the ability to observe one’s own emotions, discriminate between them & use them to guide you.
