“Feeling stressed at work, tired of a racing mind and sleepless nights?  I was , so I took the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course given by Doug Maclean.  MBSR  gave me the tools to calm my mind, reduce my anxiety level at work and and compartmentalize my  thoughts allowing me to sleep more soundly.  It is a valuable technique I will use for the rest of my life.

Doug provides you with a safe and non judgemental class room where you learn to become aware of the stressors in your life and cultivate a technique to cope with them rather than reacting to them. I would recommend this course to anyone that needs a little more Mindfulness in their lives."

MBSR Testimonial Winter/Spring 2017

For anyone who is looking to gain the valuable gift of being with yourself, just as you are, the the MBSR program is for you.  Doug's kind and gentle facilitation skills create an environment of safety, trust and respect in order for participants to embark on the vulnerable journey of self-acceptance.  You will learn and practice a variety of mindfulness tools to anchor yourself in the present moment and how to demonstrate acceptance, kindness and compassion for yourself during times of emotional difficulty.  The program helped me to reflect on areas where I "get stuck" and bring awareness to my deeply rooted patterns of interacting in the world, but most importantly offered techniques to integrate mindfulness into daily living.  Thanks Doug, for offering this wonderful gift to our city, and of course, reminding me that it's never to late to begin again.  Rhiannan

MBSR Testimonial Winter/Spring 2017

The MBSR program was an excellent mix of practice, instruction and rewarding group interactions. I learned many helpful tips and enjoyed the warm community environment that Doug helped to create. My mindfulness practice has steadily developed as I have participated in the variety of classes at Practical Wellbeing, which has been of great benefit to my overall health and outlook.  -Liz

Mindful Self-Compassion Testimonial - Winter/Spring 2017

The 8-week Mindful Self Compassion program was an inviting and gentle experience for me to be introduced to a formal practice of MSC.  I came into the program dealing with tough emotions caused from traumatic stress. What I found was a safe place to cultivate my skills for self-compassion. Doug’s approach is very supportive, and is supplemented by a body of resources that offer options to limit self-criticism, and enhance capacity for emotional wellbeing. In my experience, the act of enrolling in this workshop was a valuable initial act of self-compassion that taught me strategies that I can apply to my daily life. As a pleasant addition to my experience I connected to a community of like-minded individuals who were sensitive and encouraging in the process. I highly recommend this program to anyone open to cultivating self-compassion. Wilmer Aburto

Thank you Doug!  The course was amazing!  This program helped me appreciate and mover through some difficult emotions and situations.  Through self-compassion and mindfulness practices, I am learning to have my own back and I am grateful for the tools that quiet the voice of the inner critic.  Karen Melon

Doug opened a space that allowed for connection with others in the search for a more compassionate way to relate to ourselves and the present moment.  I have learned a lot and will continue the practices that were taught on the course.  R.S.
