I enjoyed that the online classes were a mix of lecture, videos, student sharing and led exercises -- the variety kept things interesting. The material presented was concise and to the point and presented in a well-thought-out manner.

I have never undertaken online training before and was completely unsure what to expect. Needless to say, I was most pleasantly surprised. The quality of the training and the sensitive way in which it was delivered was truly excellent.

There was a lot of information provided during the course and Sarah's book is excellent. I really enjoyed listening to the webinars and having the opportunity to talk and ask questions. The videos were very helpful. It was very helpful to see how a teacher interacts with the children and see the children participate in the class.
-Tania from South Africa

The meditations we learned have been of great benefit to me personally.  The homework activities were purposeful and will help me in preparing proposals for schools.  I loved the videos; watching Sarah and the other teachers was so helpful.  I also liked listening to my classmates give their thoughts & ask questions.  I am pleased that Sarah answered all my emails and offers meditation teaching “technical support” for life to her students. -Dianne from Australia

I truly enjoyed the classes and am so glad that I have the book to read over and over. Our preschool pilot program Little Ripples will implement many of the techniques I learned. We know the meditations will help children participating in our program at Darfuri refugee camps in Africa. -Rachel from California
