Testimonial: “Having already studied with Kathy Ward, I knew how incredibly organized she is and was confident that this would be a very thorough and valuable course. The online Level One course is as thorough as her in-person teachings and the delivery and organization of the course along with the well-planned Zoom space are all incredibly wonderful. Thanks again for being my guide through Level 1 Mindfulness MBSR and MBA Course” Louise Konrath from the USA, Level 1 online course July 2020.
