“Through taking the course as well as the timely and effective feedback from John, my view of mindfulness as a way of “being” has transformed my personal life, my path in recovery from substance abuse, and my clinical practice. In addition, the presentation style allows for the fabric of my particular faith to be woven seamlessly into the practice of mindfulness in recovery. If you are on the fence, take the course now. You won’t be disappointed!” Tim Byrum
