  • "Having already studied with Kathy Ward, I knew how incredibly organized she is and was confident that this would be a very thorough and valuable course. The online Level One course is as thorough as her in-person teachings and the delivery and organization of the course along with the well-planned Zoom space are all incredibly wonderful. Thanks again for being my guide through Level 1 Mindfulness MBSR and MBA Course"

    Louise Konrath from the USA, Level 1 online course July 2020. 

    The Level 2 online Teacher Training course was an unforgettable experience with intensive practice and diving into the very deep spectrum of teaching intentions and creative ways of implementation of the curriculum. Lots of fun, connection, and interaction, with a real embodiment of experiential learning and co-journey. For teaching experience, I think the online Teacher Training has as many benefits as weaknesses compared to the in-person group, and at the end of the day, we will teach at the end of a busy working day or online as well, not in a retreat center or hotel garden!

    Kathy is a teacher who not just show what she knows, but eager to share her wisdom and knowledge with everyone who is open to it. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to meet her and learn from her.
