I probably cannot express to you how important the 12-week program was for me, and how timely it was for me, too. I truly feel that I have a new and healthier relationship with food, and its connection to all things. I feel that it is helping me to know myself, and to be honest with myself. I could likely write a book about the numerous aspects of the this that I have already found to be beneficial. Thank you, Donald. I had a wonderful experience. —Erin H.
I have learned so much from Donald Altman’s online course and it has helped me maintain a 75-pound weight loss. Instead of feeling that I had to do it perfectly and in order, this course allowed me to just let go and do it in ways that work for me and my schedule. The course helped me to connect with my breath and stillness. Instead of feeling that I’m holding up my weight loss through will and anxiety and sweat, I’m stiller and more connected to my breath. How simply amazing! —Mary C.
