Impressions after course sessions
“It has truly been a wonderful journey attending most of your sessions and I have been able to reduce my anxiety to a great extent. I listen to your guided meditation every evening to relax and your voice has a soothing effect. I am truly grateful for this experience.”
– Jan., India
“I am really grateful and glad to know you 🙂 It was really rough at first, but then I found there is a message from me to me that I need to get it. What you said is the best sign for me that I am stepping on the right path and motivation to go on. Thanks for the meditations. The loveliness you radiate is precious.”
– S., Sweden
“I felt like I tele-transported today. (…) I felt like I’m being pulled towards some yellow light. And then I felt like I was flying through dense white clouds with subtle pinks and oranges. Then the scene changed completely, I was a floating again, I’m not sure where but it had beautiful, warm yellow lights as tiny dots. And I there was a point when I could feel energy travelling through my body. There was a point where I zoned out on breathing. When I realized I wasn’t breathing, I wasn’t struggling or gasping for breath, I simple resumed. I am a different kind of happy today.”
– J., US
“I honestly felt super relaxed by the end of the breathing/meditation session (much needed!) and you made everyone feel welcome. The time management presentation reminded me to spend time offline (and I have done so today – I’ll try to remember to note that in my daily survey). I also loved that the participant group were all super kind on the Zoom chat.”
– K., Researcher, UK
“I’ve struggled with confidence for a very long time. It’s a subject that I’ve brought up recently to address — particularly with the question: how DO I build up my confidence? The guided meditation offered a few things to do, and I look forward to seeing if it works for me. These guided meditations are a gem to use as a source of reflection. I ponder about something new each time I listen to it and learn something new.”
“I did the meditation in the morning, then the breathing exercises after work and then went to my new sports/acrobatics class. The fact that I am so engaged in learning something new, that also stretches my body in a different way and has a completely new technique, just made me soooo happy. I was present, felt tired but very happy, had a nice and relaxed sleep, and felt very energized.”
Impressions after taster sessions
I’ve been waking up with more energy the days after, it is amazing! During the session, I’ve relaxed a lot and learned how to read my body better. I love these sessions. Birgit is the best, her voice, her words and the way she guides us through the process is excellent.
– Victoria, Researcher, Finland/Peru
I loved IT. I felt relaxed and alive AT the same time. The following night I had a restful night for the first time in a long time. Very soothing voice, Precise instructions, but not too many. I recommended you to my friends.
Mind-blowing. I really did not expected such a strong physical reaction during the practice. I felt like I was floating after it. Birgit is wonderful. I already recommended it.
– LD, Researcher, Barcelona, Spain
i really felt like i connected with my body. i feel calmer compared to before. – Irem Guner, Turkey
My experience was great, I was able to both relax and become self-aware of my body sensations throughout the session. I felt more at peace and centred, which helped me to sleep better. I’ll continue with the practice. She knows exactly when to insert comments throughout the sessions, which facilitated my breathing, especially during the first session. I would definitely recommend it.
– José Bener, Product designer, Göteborg, Sweden.
I enjoyed it. As happened previously, first it is difficult to focus and abstract from the real world and my body, then I manage to relax and I sometimes dive into an almost-sleep mood. This, together with other mindfulness moments I try to include in my busy agenda, have led me to concentrate on my breathing as a way to release pressure or fall back asleep during the night.
