The following is an email i just received from a participant taking our current MBSR class in Palm Desert California. She was first diagnosed with MS in 2001. She initially took the program at Eisenhower Medical Center in 2007, she’s now back for a “tune -up” and here is what she has to say:
I am so grateful for you. You have enriched my life in ways that I will be forever grateful. Dr. Sebti reminded me during my last appointment that my attitude, choices in life and how I care for myself are the reason I have kept myself relapse free since 2001. When Dr. Sebti recommended you, I felt I had no control of my life, was scared, angry and on a list of medicines as long as my arm… I knew I just kept feeling worse and needed to find alternatives. You gave me hope, peace and helped me to regain control of my health and life. I still have my struggles, but you have given me the tools to handle whatever life has in store for me. I am also very thankful for Ian. He is such a positive ray of light. As soon as I sit beside him in class, I am immediately at peace. He is an amazing teacher and such a kind soul. I am so thankful for your loving guidance. You truly have changed my life in more ways than I can even put into words.
