Testimonials – MBSR
Christopher Chase, PhD Professor of Neuroscience, Claremont College
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a simple, direct way to give myself the best of care. The practice reminded me that who I am is much bigger than the temporary pain I experience. Beth was a radiant light in the class, helping us illuminate the very best in ourselves.

I want to thank you again for the life changing experience your stress reduction classes were to me and my Mom. I gave my Mom the classes as a gift and it was the most worthwhile, healthy gift I could ever have given her and myself.
Todd Blackball, Calgary Canada, Vice President Business Development
I attended Beth and Hugh’s MBSR classes at a critical time in my life. I was in despair when Beth’s kindness, compassion, full acceptance and presentation of the skills of meditation truly saved my life. I highly recommend Beth’s MBSR class, she brings humor, and understanding to her students when we are sometimes at the lowest points in our lives.
Rita Stec M.D. Internist, Palm Desert
Attending Beth and Hugh’s course got me back on track to ‘practicing what I preach’. Since discovering Jon Kabat-Zinn’s work in the early 90’s, I frequently recommended it to my patients to take control of their high blood pressure and stress. Now that I am back to meditating every day, my life has taken a paradigm shift that is truly exhilarating.
Sammy Sawoya, Hewlett Packard Executive
Life is full of everyday stress. Working in the corporate world most of my career, the stress level has increased over time particularly in the information age. I was looking for a way to alleviate stress, and heard about the Stress Reduction and Relaxation program. I didn’t know what to expect. I’m glad my wife and I tried it. I learned how to cope with my stress through meditation and yoga in a way that has benefited my life. These are tools that can be used anywhere. I say try it! Beth and Hugh are wonderful instructors.
Jacqueline Chase, MS Hospital Chaplain, MBSR Instructor
The MBSR class with Beth and Hugh encouraged and strengthened my trust in my intuition and my own authority. I found myself easily and confidently taking responsibility for the quality of my life. Their direct, straightforward supportive manner created a kind and nourishing environment for the group. They cared for us all.
