Beginner and Continuing Classes

"It's clear that Kurt's understanding of meditative practice grows out of direct experience. He teaches with great humor, patience, and an appreciation of a variety approaches to mindfulness. I feel lucky for the opportunity to learn from him." - Jim P., East Lansing, MI

"The beginning meditation class offered by Kurt provided an ideal learning experience. He was patient and took time to talk with each student and offer tips tailored to their questions and needs. A wide variety of different types of meditations were discussed, giving me a lot of options to explore. Kurt is patient, insightful, and sensitive to different students' styles of learning. The online resources and downloadable guided meditations that I was able to use at home were also helpful, and I am sure they will continue to be." - Laura B, East Lansing

Private Sessions

"My son was an out of state student at Michigan State and was having great difficulty adjusting -- academically, emotionally and otherwise. After reaching out to several potential helpers, I contacted Kurt. He was the perfect person to assist my son. Over a period of many months, Kurt gained my son's trust (no easy task). They spent many hours together. Although I have never met Kurt, I know that my son's life was greatly enhanced by the coaching, counseling and by the meditation that became an important part of his turnaround. My son decided to change schools and change his major. I believe that Kurt's work with my son was a vital part of his turnaround. I am forever thankful for Kurt's work with my son." - Joel E., Hawaii

"I was fortunate to receive individualized meditation instruction from Kurt through personal appointments. Unlike many meditation teachers, he is not wedded to a single approach to mindfulness practice. Rather Kurt asks thought provoking questions and carefully tailors the meditation techniques which will provide the most benefit to the student. My mindfulness practice grew more in the 1½ months we worked together than in my prior 2 years of daily meditation. Kurt’s training had a major positive impact on me which I will carry with me for the rest of my life." - Jeff F., East Lansing, MI

"I have known Mr. Kurt Scholler for many years. Over these times he has helped me a lot between building a successful high tech material company and balancing my own personal life. Businesses sometimes go through tough times. Right after September 11th, 2001 our company experienced a significant revenue drop, which had a big impact on our bottom line. During that time I was under a lot of pressure to make drastic changes both in business and my personal life. Kurt helped me identify my personal and business goals, critical tasks which needed immediate attention. In the entire process he showed great interest in helping and coaching me to achieve my personal goals. Over the years Kurt has demonstrated to me that he is a very kind, considerate, and most importantly -- a trustworthy individual. He always tries to understand others. When analyzing a situation, he will always put himself in other person’s position in order find a solution that is best suited to that particular individual. Working with Kurt is a great life time experience." - W.W., President, a mid-sized, global engineered materials corporation , Ann Arbor, MI
