I took the MBSR program because I felt my life was out of control and I needed help in learning how to cope. The program, with Jill’s compassionate teaching, did successfully show me how to deal with the stressors in my life, but unexpectedly moved me to want to continue fostering a deeper understanding of myself and my life through mindfulness and meditation.
