Fergal, Mindfulness for Stress Reduction Course.
I sat this course in January 2014. “Thank you Carmel Farnan - I was a terrible worrier about future events and also held a lot of guilt inside. This caused a lot of troubled and left me suffering with stress, anxiety and I was unable to sleep. After attending Carmel's course I am now a changed person. I can concentrate and I now live in the present. I have the ability to be with what's happening right now in my life, not the presentation that I'm due to give in a few days time, or whether I can meet my monthly mortgage commitment.
Before Carmel's course I just didn't have the skills to change, but the change in me happened practically overnight. I decided that I didn't want to dwell anymore on the negatives. It was the Mindfulness practice and taking time to write down the positives in my life that changed it for me. Now when I go out walking, I don't take the ipod. As I walk I absorb everything around me.
I notice all the nature around me, all the trees and even how the grass smells. I tune into the sounds of the ducks and to the sound of the river. My god-given senses allow me to enjoy my walk and everything that happens while walking.
Carmel's course taught me how to do this and now a fortnight later I still have a very positive view on life. At the course we also did some Meditation. As an insomnia sufferer for many years I had no faith in the meditation. I had done all kinds of holistic treatments for this including massages, Reiki, and I had also tried medication – but nothing worked. I also bought cd’s and meditation apps but absolutely nothing worked, until the meditation on Carmel's course. I relaxed so deeply that I didn't think I'd be able to rouse myself.
Finally, I want to say that personally after I completed this course my mind has stopped wandering as I do my daily practices. I am living very clearly in the present moment. I'm recommending this course to anyone, regardless of their ailments, to see it brings a new something , that is useful, helpful and life-changing to them. The first step is to actually do the course. Once you have done that you WILL absolutely notice a positive difference. Please let me know of your follow-up courses.”

“Carmel Farnan, from The Irish Mindfulness Academy, came into our offices to give us a course on Mindfulness. The presentation was excellent and the course itself was a very positive experience. Personally, I found it to very calming and felt very relaxed throughout. I fully intend to bring what I have learned from this course into my personal life and also into my working life by practising it on a daily basis. On the course there was lots of interaction and discussion which was really enjoyable, but more importantly helped people to understand their own different thought processes and also how Mindfulness can be applied to themselves.
Carmel is a lovely course facilitator and is hugely knowledgeable about Mindfulness. She was really warm and welcoming, which was great because the people relaxed and therefore asked lots of questions, which helped them gain more from the course.
Thank you Carmel for taking the time to come into our offices and introducing us to Mindfulness, and also for whetting our appetite about Mindfulness. We plan on having you back in for more courses really soon!”.
