What Past Participants are Saying about MBSR at The Prancing Peacock

Brandon is a skilled instructor with an excellent ability to lead group sessions in a potentially emotionally charged atmosphere. His energy was calming and grounding.

Brandon is an excellent teacher.  He CARES about both the practice and his students.


I liked the guided discussions and the gentle support from our teacher.  The guidance for home practice was most beneficial… It will remain with me as a tool.


It helped me be more mindful and experience life more like when I was a child.  Which is great.  Also, no more anxiety. And finally able to do things for myself without feeling guilty that I am not caring enough for others.


Very helpful to have an experienced teacher and material to use as a guide and resource.  Love the all day session.  Would love even two.

Learning to be present and more accepting of my feelings. Nothing but positive comments.  Brandon was great.  I was nervous at the beginning of the course, but I feel very comfortable with the format now.


Learning different ways to practice mindfulness.  Really enjoyed the retreat.  Teacher is very focused.  Kept the course moving on track.


Wonderful experience: felt like a safe space to grow and explore / practice.

One of the things I found most beneficial was the lack of judgment modeled by the instructor.  The teacher was very gentle, knowledgeable, and effective.


The MBSR program requires commitment, but pays off beyond expectations, and one could not ask for a better guide along this path than Brandon.  Brandon’s warmth, compassion, and skill as a group instructor keep meetings productive and well-paced without sacrificing the opportunity for each participant to enjoy a meaningful, personal experience.  Brandon’s best teaching tool is his own way of being–open to the present experience of life from moment to moment, accepting of himself, others, and whatever life brings to him.

Being able to take what I’ve learned and create a schedule for meditation that works best for me.  Brandon has been patient and helpful and like any great teacher, he encourages you to think about your questions so you can develop your own answer because we’re all different and unique.


Brandon is a wonderful teacher of mindfulness.  I took a class with him at the Prancing Peacock, and the location was just perfect.  I highly recommend his group if you’re looking to explore mindfulness and meditation!
