"I gained a greater awareness of how I am always ready to give compassion to others and rarely extend to myself the same loving kindness. Despite the cognitive knowledge of this, I never spent time specifically working on it. I also enjoyed the practice of sharing in a safe place my feelings and emotions, and exercises like sitting with difficult emotions and examining the feelings without getting pulled in or swept away. Like anything else done regularly it becomes a habit. The course helped me to put into daily practice tools that help me remember that love starts with self love."
"I am able to be more compassionate to people around me in all different environments, and a lot of daily situations have become 'teaching' environments for me where I can practice compassion and learn through them."
"The classes had plenty of variety. The meditations were well spaced. There were opportunities to explore individual concerns. I find that I now practice compassion with intention during the day when I'm out in public."
"I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your class on compassion, Brett. I am using the skills in my everyday life, and reaping the benefits of being compassionate to others as well as to myself. Thank you for sharing these wonderful tools for living.”
"I've found compassion is like water to the fire of even deep-rooted anger, often. A great tool."
"Brett exudes kindness, loving presence, patience, and compassionate care for humanity. As a seeker and a searcher for truth, he is able to invite other seekers to also find truth."
"For our science oriented (conference attendees), your talk was profound to them. It helped affirm the chaos around them and how their reactions really matter."
"I noticed by the end (of the CCT program) I was less head focused, and more heart centered and present."
"I felt that I became more self-aware of my actions/feelings/thoughts and was able to start to apply self-compassion. Thank you so much! I will definitely recommend this class!"
"My meditation practice was enhanced and evolved because of this course."
"Brett's voice is amazing. The perfect intonation of kindness, calm, compassion and soothing."
"We're so glad you've brought this work to Tampa Bay, and look forward to more collaborations."
