“The course left a lot of positive emotions and knowledge that I will definitely use in the future! I had some concerns about the content, as I am quite skeptical about the spiritual practices. I totally changed my mind!

The lecturer is amazing! A very pleasant young woman.

We had an opportunity to combine class activities and outdoor, which is great!  After this course, you will learn how to manage time and think positively, how to increase productivity and feel less tired at the same time!!! Thank you so much!”

“Our huge thank you for the whole week. I’m writing with the permission of our whole group (Blanka, Renata, Marie, Petr).

We spent a wonderful time on the island (the nature is really amazing) and attended a useful course for our personal as well as work-life under your “nonviolent” leadership.

You structured the topic and changed the activities very well. We enjoyed it. Thanks for the handout. It is for the first time we’ve got some materials with an overview from the mobility course.”
