"Patrick Kearney is the best mindfulness teacher it has been my experience to work with. I appreciate the depth of his insights into the Buddha’s teaching, meanings that have resonated with me personally. Few teachers can help smooth a student’s own experience with mindfulness practice as he does. Last, and hardly least, Patrick has a huge heart, and this manifests in all his teachings. I cannot recommend a workshop with Patrick Kearney highly enough."

"As a Business Coach/Consultant, Mindfulness Practice has enabled me a significant clarity of mind in decision making for my own business decisions and those of my clients. It has also facilitated a greater insight into my own business and personal purpose, develop a greater empathy for others, and has been a significant help in growing my emotional intelligence. These traits have enhanced my leadership capability.

"I have worked with Patrick over a 6 year period and his lifetime of knowledge and experience enables him to deliver his Mindfulness training and coaching in a simple, concise, and practical way."

"Patrick has been my teacher and Mindfulness guide for many years now. Drawing on a rich and complex breath of knowledge, both as a practitioner and an academic, he presents the philosophy and skills of Mindfulness in an openhearted, clear, often humorous and always compelling way. It is always a joy to benefit from his teaching"
