Pilot Program Feedback
Do open more workshop - benefitted alot through the programme.
When I first attended, I was having headache and health was poor. As the workshop continue, my condition improved and I can better concentrate.
I wish I have the opportunity to continue with these three courses of CAMRE workshop.. Because these knowledge need time and continuous practice, to get the full results. Truly grateful to all the 3 instructors and to our coordinator QiuTing.
Though I am only beginning to explore meditation, it seems sleep qualityhas improved. If I can continue for another 8 weeks it will be even better!
