    Thank you Mark for your daily practices and thank you very much to the organizers of the Summit. I am a physician and university professor in Monterrey, Mexico and I’m grateful for the information and motivation to keep practicing and find ways to make this available for healthcare professionals and students. I hope to keep in touch with the experts for guidance and help. Thank you again!

    Thank all of you for this refreshing summit . Mark Bertin’s medittation were simple and effective. Thank you Mark…
    The teachings about the differences between empathy and compassion were very welcome. As well as other boundaries to protect oneself from burn out.
    All conferences are opening avenues to go on with practice derived from loving kindness, a reservoir we all share.

    Thank you Mark
    I couldnt think of someone like a colleague & it felt good to concentrate on myself !
    The neutral person was easier to focus on .the difficult person , my mom,
    seemed too difficult to share these with & again it was good to think of myself.
    Wishing u a joyful year

    Thank you for your 5-day meditation challenge. Much, much less a challenge and much more a breath of fresh air and joy. Namaste.

    Thank you, Mark for each of your morning practices. They have been an important part of this summit. Thank you also for the skillful ways you interviewed a number of the speakers. I especially appreciated today how you encouraged us to offer ourselves compassion while offering it to the person we are having difficulty with. Since I’m in close relationship with the person I’m having difficulty with, wishing “May both of us…” acknowledged how we each need compassion separately and together. This was a new addition to my loving kindness practice which I will continue.
