Testimonials

A special thank you to Doug for facilitating Jon Kabat Zinn's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course.

Doug's approach to MBSR met all of my expectations. After being diagnosed with anxiety disorder, I was seeking a supportive intervention to enable me to consciously work with my anxiety challenge in a non- reactive way. Doug's classes were interactive, practice oriented, and were supported with useful written and on-line resources. I particularly appreciated Doug's willingness to share his personal experience with mindfulness techniques and his willingness to provide summaries of each class.

Learning Mindfulness with Practical Wellbeing has been an excellent answer to my search for mindful meditation, stress reduction, and helpful strategies for living in the "now".  The inclusion of yoga to the mix is also a welcome addition to the class structure, and a great aid to teaching one to focus on one's breathing.

I was elated to discover Doug had been trained at the clinic started by Jon Kabat-Zinn and was running the same program here in Calgary. Under Doug's tutelage I have been given the requisite tools to practice mindfulness techniques that have enriched my life. Best gift I ever given myself."

Doug MacLean's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training program is thorough, effective, and practical.  It's grounded in both his education with Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of MBSR, and his own mindfulness practice of many years.  The classes are informative, interactive and practice-based, backed up with excellent written and online resources.
