Testimonials

This was a challenging journey but one that I am truly grateful for. I have seen changes in my life and intend to continue to develop the practice. - A. Krauss.
I recently took an MBSR workshop with Jen and it has made a huge difference in my life, enabling me to feel more centred and able to focus on the present moment. I had tried meditation a few times before, not very successfully. With Jen’s open and down-to-earth approach, I was able to adopt techniques that helped me to establish a regular practice. It is obvious that Jen’s guidance is based on a combination of both solid training and personal experience, and she is very knowledgeable and passionate in her teaching. Through this experience, I have been able to glean the benefits of greater mindfulness and have achieved a new level of well-being. - Irina Goldenberg
I’ve noticed the shift in my ability to respond versus react. Using the breath as my anchor is becoming more natural and I’m excited to continue this journey. Your teaching, so calm and responsive, was valued by us all! - Chris Clapp
Jennifer is a skilled leader who obviously walks the walk. - Robert Henderson
I thoroughly enjoyed Jennifer’s three-hour introductory workshop! It was an excellent introduction to mindfulness meditation. I liked how she exposed us to five different meditations. It was helpful that the workshop was ‘hands-on’ and we got to experience doing the meditations. In addition, there were static meditations and ones involving movement. This mixed things up for the group and kept our interest. She followed each meditation with a request for feedback from the group, and it was through this feedback that she taught a lot of the concepts. This seemed very seamless and natural. This approach is in stark contrast to lecturing, which can often lose the student. Instead, she had rapt attention from the entire of the group. I also liked how she didn’t have a lecturer’s ‘loud, teacher voice,’ instead, she was calm and spoke in a normal volume. She was clearly very knowledgeable and experienced about the topic and is a great teacher! I would definitely recommend Jennifer’s workshop; in fact, I have already mentioned it to some of my patients and look forward to taking her eight-week MBSR workshop! - Richard
Jennifer is a soft-spoken individual, but also a very clear and thorough guide. She had very thoughtful and often helpful responses to individual concerns. - Jane Archibald
I recently completed the MBSR program under the instruction of Jennifer Innes. I found the program after reading Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. During the course, we, as a group, learned about mindfulness and ways to use it to deal with stress and anxiety that affects us on a daily basis. I have found that mindfulness and the techniques that were taught at the course have been very helpful in dealing with my particular situation. Jennifer Innes, as an instructor, put us all at ease and made the weekly visits really enjoyable while, at the same time, extremely effective. Her calm nature was the perfect complement to the techniques we learned at each session. If you are currently dealing with stress and anxiety, I would absolutely recommend this course and instructor as tools to help you learn about and, hopefully, deal more effectively with the common affliction of stress and anxiety. - Dr. Jordan Pettigrew
In the summer of 2018, I took the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course with Jennifer and Kathy. The course exceeded my expectations in every way. We were fortunate enough to have fantastic and caring facilitators (Jennifer and Kathy), as well as an open, supportive cohort whose members treated each other with respect, empathy, and understanding. I can honestly say that I have seen a significant shift in my mindset over eight short weeks, and an improvement in the way that I perceive and handle the stress in my life. Now to keep practicing! Thank you again, and I look forward to joining you for the ‘Day of Mindfulness’ in the future. - Rebekka Bond
Working with Jennifer during the six week mindfulness workshop was truly an eye-opening experience... Truly a great experience, and very important for high school students as it does relieve a lot of unnecessary stress! - Thom Haghighat, grade 12 student, Ashbury College
Thanks Jennifer. Congratulations. Your website is another wonderful resource for me. I am using your tapes from the course ‘religiously’ and finding the journey less difficult. I have warm, positive memories of the group and our work together in the Spring. A life long journey, I think. — Nancy Villeneuve
