The course went really well for me. My confidence has grown in both areas and I feel really motivated to keep going, as I really believe now that this can help me.
Dan is a fantastic teacher, he’s very warm and puts people at ease, I have done a few mindfulness courses through the years and his teaching is head and shoulders above them. He explains everything in simple terms, and he is always happy to answer questions. Plus enthusiasm is very infectious.
The foundation course has helped me a lot with anxiety related issues – I think having Dan as my teacher has also helped tremendously which is why I have already signed up to another course as want to carry on with the practice.
I think Dan is an amazing teacher with so much empathy and kindness – he provides great guidance and patience and everyone I know who has been to his classes say the same and go on to recommend his classes to others.
Dan is a really gifted meditation teacher, and he has a natural ability to guide you through the meditation and explain the concept of mindfulness and meditation with a very experienced and transparent outlook. I have a much clearer understanding of both mindulness and meditation and feel I have learnt the tools to help me practice more regularly. I am particular grateful for having all the guided meditations recorded and available for when I need them.
The practise of stillness is never more important than right now : )
If you are looking for a bit of assistance getting into, restarting, moving forward or anything mindfulness/meditation related, and want that real personal touch, then there is nothing better than a 1 to 1 session.
Dan speaks directly, frankly and honestly which is what I like the most. He is so easy to follow and genuine in his explanations its so refreshing. I would not change anything about his manner.
Dan was extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter and other related matters. Dan is very personable and makes you feel you can ask any question to him or in a group without feeling embarrassed. The information was delivered by Dan in a clear and concise manner and definitely from the heart. I cannot think of any weaknesses – Dan is a great teacher!!
I have gained confidence to “mix up” my meditations according to how I feel and that I do not need to stick to the meditations I had previously been taught
Course was very beneficial for my understanding and practice of meditation. I practice more often with more intensity. Even if I struggled to find time to meditate, thanks to Dan I know several ways of how to be more mindful during my busy schedule.
Dan came across as very natural and genuine. He managed to share complex ideas in very simple and understandable way. He was very kind, patient and always willing to help through out the course.
Dan made it the most beautiful peaceful and with a lovely bit of humour and cannot praise Dan enough; everyone needs a Dan in their life.
It has changed my way of thinking and now enjoy meditating every day
The content, practical exercises and the fluidity of the day was perfect, very harmonious and sincere atmosphere.
This was demonstrated at the end of retreat with the diviners treat. For me my aspirations was realignment to focus on recultivating self compassion to open my eyes and heart to appreciation and I achieved it and much more.
I feel much more connected to my open heart and feel able to send meta out to the world and nurture myself.
Dan has an amazing presence. He makes me feel very calm and content. He is eloquent, knowledgeable empathic and fun. I loved this retreat.
Spiritally and emotionally it was a very powerful and valuable experience. It was also very relaxing.
Dan is welcoming, open and approachable teacher. His voice is calm and soothing wich makes going into meditations very easy. Dan is knowledgable and professional and he made me feel safe and at ease.
It has given me time to myself which was difficult at times to begin with, but eventually I lost the feeling of guilt and thinking about all the other things I could be doing. It has improved my sleep pattern and I feel generally more calm and relaxed in myself and my thoughts.
For me this course was life changing.He is an amazing teacher. I had very specific questions and he was very helpful . It was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend.
Dan is such a warm and calming human being. He made me feel at ease and very comfortable. He is a great teacher and would love to learn a lot more from him.
The course helped me extremely in my busy life. It brought back the importance that my time and presence is and how important it is to truly stop in our busy lives. I’m sleeping better and much calmer my stress and anxiety that comes with my job role has felt more manageable. Dan is amazing and will definitely continue with him.
Meditation confidence grown.
Mindfulness confidence grown.
Completely changed my life!
Daniel is a fantastic teacher who is considerate to all.
Daniel was amazing throughout the whole day.The course was delivered at the right pace. Daniel provided a clear explanation of each meditation. Daniel created a relaxed atmosphere making me feel at ease and totally relaxed. I would recommend and encourage friends to attend the course run by Daniel.
This was an amazing course meeting all my expectations and more. Having never meditated before the feeling after was wonderful. I have now started to practice meditation and has enabled me to learn the importance of thinking about myself and have time for myself.
Dan has been an inspiration in terms of his enthusiasm for meditation and the benefits it brings. I never thought I would have been able to sit still to meditate…whilst still early days I am enjoying practising and not getting frustrated when I can’t.
Many strengths – compassionate, enthusiastic. He exudes positive energy that made the classes something we didn’t want to miss. His teaching is well paced and each session was very enjoyable, thought provoking and has made me want to develop the practice of meditation in my life. I already knew a little about mindfulness but this has been something I feel Dan has really inspired me to practice. An excellent teacher!
Life changing , cleared my mind and lowered my high blood Pressure. I thought Daniel was so good I expanded at some Length to express the impression he made on me, but your site timed out, lost the page and I have run out of time!
Excellent teacher, made me feel very confident
This course was amazing, it exceeded all my expectations. I feel confident I can mediate now with the tools Dan gave us. I am so grateful to have been on such an incredible course.
Dan made this course what it was, he was so welcoming and made everyone feel so at ease. The course was ran at a perfect pace, Dan was willing to answer any questions but at the same time he did not push for anything from us, there was no pressure at all (as I have found in past courses… Tutors expect you to give them feedback straight away.) Dans whole persona is so chilled he in my eyes is the perfect teacher of mediation.
Really loved the ‘tasting board’ of different types of meditation, enabling experience and sampling of various disciplines. I now use meditation daily, sometimes more than once daily, and still try different types as I am not yet consistently able to reach a calm and focussed mindset in any single discipline – although this is improving. I feel a reduction in pressure to please others and live up to expectations, and more comfortable pleasing just myself – something that is taking a lot of getting accustomed to.
Dan’s friendly aura and genuine smiling face always made me feel welcome from the first minute. The tone of his voice was very calming and confident.
