The MSC Teachers:

"Tina, you created a safe, warm, kind and comfortable learning environment. Your expertise and experience in MSC was evident throughout the program as well as your ability to provide lots of relevant examples to explain a point/concept."

"The teachers were warm, authentic and funny, which set the stage for an open, trusting group. On of the main things was they used self-compassion - this has helped me apply it too. I appreciated the use of personal anecdotes which normalized the struggles of MSC, and a way through such struggles."

"Loved your openness, the way you valued each participant as an individual and part of a collective group."

"Good ability to respond to each person and be flexible."

"The teacher's kindness and generous attitude to everyone was heartwarming"

"I thought the teacher was 'keeping it real', and practicing what she preached."

"Excellent planning, preparation and presentation skills of our wise teacher/s, made this a fulfilling experience."

"The teacher was very compassionate and respectful of our suffering, struggles, difficulties and stories. She was able to share her own experiences and provided a safe environment for us to open up."
