Here are some Testimonials about Sagara and his Mindfulness Work:
Suryacitta (Midlands Mindfulness):
“I have found Sagara to be one of the most insightful teachers I have encountered. He is humorous, intelligent and has a knowledge and experience of mindfulness that I have found quite rare. It is obvious that Sagara” teaches from his own experience gleaned from his many years of deep practice. I find he is able to make mindfulness relevant to people’s lives.”
Suryacitta is one of the founders and principal mindfulness teachers for The Midlands Centre for Mindfulness and Compassion. He is also author of the book ‘Finding Contentment through Mindfulness’ which was published by Ivy Press in 2011.
Angela Glascott (NTW NHS Trust):
“Sagara has a way about him that makes you feel immediately at ease. He creates an atmosphere of safe acceptance where people with the most complex of needs feel free to explore their emotions and gain control over how they respond to distress. I believe that it mindfulness is probably the most helpful self management tool I’ve encountered.”
Angela is the Recovery College Coordinator for The Newcastle Recovery College based in Broadacre House. Angela has been instrumental in the development of the college, making it a place where service users are able to make connections and develop their knowledge and skills in relation to recovery, as well as having a place to go when they feel that they are in need of extra support.
