Seminar – East Greenbush Library

I offered the 12th seminar at East Greenbush Community Library (1) on October 8, 2014 from 7 to 8.30 pm. Attended by total 18 adults, 14 female and 4 male. A folder containing my key handouts (2) and sample testimonials was distributed to every participant. 

It was remarkable that this many showed up for the seminar within 6 months of my last seminar in April 2014 at this library attended by 14 persons. Apparently many people are looking for such self help techniques for stress management.

@ Not a sufferer of insomnia any more!

Feedback from Sarah Firisen, a friend of our family:

She read my handouts (1) and attended one class along with her daughter, to get to know the technique. She was happy with how it helped with her sleep problems after a short time of practice. On my request she sent this feedback.

“As a chronic sufferer of insomnia, I’ve found that the Counting Breaths technique enables me to fall asleep easily, have a better quality of sleep and get back to sleep if I wake in the night. I’ve not suffered from insomnia since I began using the technique. I would thoroughly recommend it.”
