“I have taken other courses with a mindfulness component, and with a focus on body sensation, but they didn’t provide a theoretical model. This workshop was particularly helpful for me as I learned the ‘big picture’ and now have the framework to refer to if/when I get lost.”
– Sarah Cockell | Alberta, BC | May 27 & 28, 2013


“I am a special education teacher and beginning to explore mindfulness practices as a way to promote self-regulation. The content of the workshop is definitely cutting edge. I’m inspired to continue this work with the confidence that I now have a solid grounding in mindfulness. Dr. Cayoun is an outstanding, engaging presenter with an obvious passion for the material he is presenting.”
– Susan Murray | Vancouver, BC | May 27 & 28, 2013


“Provided excellent theoretical/conceptual framework – great transdiagnostic value – helped me connect my personal with professional practice.”
– Vancouver, BC | May 27 & 28, 2013


“Bruno was very knowledgeable and shared in a manner that all could understand. He graciously stopped for periods to filed questions even with his time constraints”

“I liked the experiential practice and case illustrations that helped me understand the concepts. Thank you Dr. Cayoun for delivering this wonderful training for us.”

“Bruno Cayoun surpassed my expectations for both content and skillfulness in delivery. He covered a large amount of material in a comprehensive, integrated and accessible way.”
– Valerie Clements, M.A  | Edmonton, AB | May 4 & 5, 2015


“The strength of this workshop is how it dynamically, experientially, and scientifically brings together so many of the bits and pieces of other workshops and readings I have done on meditation, mindfulness, and the helping relationship. I was moved both personally and professionally by Bruno’s explanations, stories, demonstrations, and practice.”
