Testimonial from Randell S - TTR1 June 2013 
M.D. at a Holistic Clinic in Norway

This course is highly recommended to anyone wishing to both deepen their own practice and prepare to teach others Mindfulness. The knowledge and teaching experience of the teachers is highly inspiring and enriching. The course fuses clear and structured teaching with informal group dialogue and ample opportunity for practice. I really appreciated the obvious preparation put into the course by the teachers and the beautiful setting at Solterreno Retreat Centre. My stay was a personal inspiration and renewal.

Testimonial from Christine - TTR1 May 2014

I liked the pace of the course. It is well organised with logical sequencing and developing progress. The right amount of time for discussion and questions. Availability of teachers for help or queries was on offer whenever needed. I really felt the teachers were fresh as if we were their first ever students even though they have taught this many times before. I felt inspired and supported. Both are patient with a good sense of humour.

Testimonial from Mark - TTR1 May 2014

The TTR1 course was all I hoped for and more. The learning experiences were provided in a professional yet kind and compassionate way. Solterreno is a beutiful place to learn and share. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about and teach Mindfulness.
