    "Without a doubt this course gave me marvellous tools and techniques to help me meditate. And I am sure this has encouraged me to become a stronger, more compassionate person. My immediate response was, "Now I feel whole". But the benefits have not only been for myself, it has been so rewarding teaching and sharing this knowledge to support others ride the ups and downs of everyday life. And believe me – there seems to be many who need help right now.

    The peace of mind I gained will last a lifetime. The fun, thirst for learning and feeling totally nourished continues. The joy that I shared with others many years ago transcends time and place and I am still meditating with those dear friends I met on the course.

    Don’t wait, don’t hesitate. It's the most perfect opportunity to experience deep truth and connect in such a profound way."

    "Before the Dru meditation course, I was a reluctant meditator. But, the Dru Meditation teachers had a profoundly beautiful effect on my life. The meditation tools introduced in the course were both accessible and impactful over time. I now have a really excellent, daily meditation practice that has become an integral part of my life. I have found exquisite peace and stillness that is very special.

    The Dru Meditation teachers were extremely supportive and patiently supported and eased me into the meditation practices that I really love."

    James Taylor

    Psychotherapist, Dru Meditation & Wing Chun Teacher

    The Dru Meditation course gave me an illuminating experience of being, in which I gained a more profound and holistic awareness of myself and the world around me.

    As we were introduced to the Koshas or layers of our being, we were taught relaxation, concentration and meditation practices to enable our ability to discern and develop ourselves.

    My learning was facilitated by accomplished and compassionate teachers who inspired me to continue and deepen my learning. I was also helped by the clear structure of the Dru Meditation process which offers a clear form for exploring the inner life and then how it might be applied to our lived lives. Since I qualified, I have committed thousands of hours to my own practice, to teaching Dru Meditation and to undertaking numerous further Dru trainings. The knowledge within the Dru community is so rich, I will grow old learning from it.

    My overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude for the course; as the years have unfolded I have become more and more aware of the quality and depth of what I have been given. I warmly commend this training to you.

    Natasha Selby

    "I was expecting the course to include content and support to master my own practice, and develop the skills to teach meditation safely and effectively to others. It certainly has that. What I was not expecting was how deepening my own personal practice would positively impact everything and everyone in my life 'off the mat' too. I now meet life's challenges with far more equanimity and focus than before. And the course works brilliantly online! I'd encourage anyone and everyone to do it.

    I honestly can't believe how this course has helped so many aspects of my life. A regular meditation practice has helped me approach challenges with more calmness, focus and confidence than ever before."

    Victoria Sprigg

    "Life was always good, but now I also have these techniques and resource within me, the power of self led movement and meditation on a daily basis is life changing. I find that the connection to soul shines through me revealing a deep contentment.

    The Dru Meditation Mastery course was life-changing for me. I use its teachings daily and have found such a resource and peace within myself. The live sessions were sensational. The depth of learning, range of speakers, visuals and quality of sound despite being taught fully via zoom, was incredible. I feel so honoured and grateful to each speaker and the Dru support team that enabled the sessions to happen. Apart from being in person, I can't think of anything that would help the sessions. Having said that, being online meant far less commitment of having to be in Snowdonia every month, so therefore, it was perfect how it was!"

      Cheryl Wright

    "I found the course very inspirational. Many days the opening statements struck a chord and the comments stayed with me. The teaching styles were varied but every single tutor gave us keys to development and made it feel easy to keep on track.

    I was able to keep perspective and adopt an attitude of gratitude at a particularly challenging time in my personal life. I was aware of the power to choose how I was thinking and feeling. The online content allowed me to revisit sections as I required and to catch up on any missed sections quickly and easily."
