“I would like to mention how your course changed my life for the better. My family stated how they noticed a difference in my behavior once I took your course. Similarly, I had a calmer approach to solving problems. Your course minimized my anxiety and it replaced my anxiety with strength and courage. I am forever grateful for taking your Mindful Based Stress Reduction Course at Ramapo College of New Jersey. After taking your course, I noticed how I let others dictate my life, instead of taking control of my life. This was until I took your Mindful Stress Based Reduction Course and I spent extra attention, noticing how I was feeling, and my emotions regarding events that happened within my life.” – MBSR Participant
“I wanted to relay how much I enjoyed the speaker on Forgiveness and his insights. I actually put him on YouTube driving home to keep the peace he created in the lecture. I will look forward to other events at the Krame center.” -Participant at “Forgive for Good” with Dr. Fred Luskin.
“I have conducted mindfulness sessions using some exercises from the MBSR class in both my undergraduate and MBA classes, and the response has been quite positive. I also have students write reflective assignments in all my classes.” -Sredevi Shivarajan, Ramapo faculty
