“Excellent delivery. Loved Laurence's calm and thoughtful manner and precise delivery.  Also appreciated her flexibility in approach (not only one way or a right way of doing things.) Laurence did an excellent job of keeping us on track while also allowing us plenty of "space" to talk/share. Would love for this group to continue as another series.”

“Laurence's presence was like the anchor our breathing is supposed to be. The pacing and integration of theoretical concepts with actual practice were especially good. “

“This was a life-changing course.  Laurence has deep knowledge of the subject of mindfulness-based stress reduction and is a very skillful facilitator as well as teacher.  Her professional psychotherapy background is reflected in her careful ability to lead group discussions and ensure that they stayed on track with the lessons.   The curriculum was extremely well prepared and the pace was perfect – it was a great mix of instruction and different types of practice.  With Laurence’s gifted teaching ability, every single participant became deeply engaged in the subject, connected with the group and invested in the practice.   Laurence’s dedication to the subject, and investment in her students is also demonstrated by her invitation to all graduates to participate in a monthly refresher course after the class is over.  I have very much enjoyed the opportunity to continue my learning in the refresher classes.  I cannot say enough about how much this class meant to me and what a wonderful instructor Laurence is.”

“I am an experienced meditator, as taught by Transcendental Meditation and Deepak Chopra. After reading about Mindfulness, I was intrigued and wanted to study Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as taught by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founding Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts. I was thrilled when the Center offered MBSR by a teacher certified through Mr. Zinn’s program.  Practicing MBSR was life changing and Laurence Magro is an excellent teacher.  I am grateful to Laurence and the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Center for Continuing Education for this experience.”

“Meeting Laurence, learning and attending her class has set me on an amazing course of change.  By making new choices each day, and slowly changing habits and the choices, I’m seeing all kinds of positive outcomes.  I feel even more open to trying new things.  My self-compassion quotient has dramatically increased.  And these are just some of the changes.”
