We just finished up our 1st 8 week course and it was a huge success! Below is a sample video of the class as well as some feedback from the participants.


Video from Lakshmi Menon

"This class has given me skills to practice that will help me deal with difficult situations in life. It has been a wonderful experience. I highly recommend the class for anyone looking to cultivate compassion and live life with a kind, openhearted awareness." - Cynthia Andre

"I learned to respond to a deep yearning with peace and well-being in my heart, how to begin to be free of pain and struggles, and that I'm not alone in this." - Juan Carreon

"I highly recommend the CBCT course taught by Suzanne Westbrook through The HeartWell Institute. Suzanne is a wonderful teacher who creates a rich and nurturing learning environment through her warmth, compassion, open hearted presence, and knowledge." - Miriam Shapiro

"CBCT course has brought us another chance to live in the origin of the nature. Feeling of tenderness and kindness that we have forgotten is revealed from our heart by Suzanne." - Jinok Lee 

Because of the success of our first program, we are offering a second program! This program will run every Wednesday from February 2nd to March 23rd from 10:30AM-12:30PM
