Video Testimonials about Meditation
The following videos provide feedback voluntarily given about The Way Back meditation teachings. Although they refer to Pure Energy Meditation, this was in the years just before The Way Back was founded. They provide a wonderful insight into how normal people benefit from the spiritual teaching and guidance available on The Way Back.

What normal people are experiencing from learning meditation
The following testimonials and feedback are gathered from just a few of the many students taught on Pure Energy Meditation and then on The Way Back which was founded in 2018. It includes testimony from people who attended regular classes, one-off weekend meditation retreats, and one-to-one meditation lessons.
My most favourite thing about meditation is that it helps me to relax. I relax when I watch television but my mind is still thinking about other things, but in meditation I and my mind feel still. I am much calmer when I meditate as it takes the stress away and it helps me to sleep much better.
During my one to one session with Mark he taught me several meditative techniques and how to use them easily. This gave me a direction and understanding of how to meditate that I can now use on my own. Before I felt I was wasting my time but now I get so much out of my meditation.
On a recent visit to the doctor for routine blood pressure readings, when the doctor placed the cuff on my arm, I started to use the breathing techniques as learned in your meditation classes. The doctor was baffled as the first reading was high but the subsequent readings were normal. The breathing techniques are obviously making a difference. The doctor had been going to increase my blood pressure medication but didn’t as a result of the improved readings. Thank you Mark! Cheers Pearl Lewis.
Having practised Buddhism for over 16 years, I thought I knew how to meditate. But guided by Mark it has taken just months to achieve stillness & raise my vibration to a level I have never experienced. Mark’s meditation teaching has changed me in an utterly profound way.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful meditation sessions I have recently attended in Broadstairs, Kent. You have taught me ways to relax, empty my mind and enjoy the stillness within. The quality of your classes, teaching and understanding of individual needs is truly remarkable.
I was already a meditation advocate before initiation into the Light and Sound, (having meditated for several years). However, I was certain there was more to experience and attain. The help received setting up my initiation was amazing, and subsequently all the follow-on support has be exceptional, and most astoundingly, it has all been completely FREE. Importantly my meditation has deepened and is much more meaningful, and I have discovered a new and significant spiritual direction.
I learnt transcendental meditation many years ago when I was a student… over the years I’ve continued to use the techniques but it reached a plateau and although I meditated 20 mins every day it tailed off and I felt almost like I’d “done it”… with Mark there was a much deeper level of guidance and I really did feel I’ve moved my meditation on further in fact I’d say I’d learnt more in two sessions meditating with Mark than I’d learnt in the previous 25 years of TM and for me personally that was a huge step forward. I know I’m experiencing things on a different level from the experiences I had on TM which was good, but this is better.
Hi Mark, I just wanted to thank you for my first meditation session, it was amazing! It stayed with me all day and I meditated before going to bed, slept straight away and didn’t wake once, slept 11 hours! Meditated before getting up this morning too. Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU.
I run the staff health and wellbeing programme and as part of our choose wellbeing month at the end of 2013, we invited Mark to run an hour long meditation session. We had just over 20 staff attend and the feedback was great. People saying that they felt totally energized afterwards, and that it gave them just that quiet 25 to 30 mins just to decompress at the end of the day really. People also said it was a really thought out session and they really appreciated the time just to take some time to be still at the end of the day. Following on from our session Mark recorded a podcast for us with a quick tutorial dispelling some myths around meditation and offering some hints and tips.

I had such a wonderful weekend… I’m going to start meditating every day and feel really excited about it. Thank you Mark!
What a wonderful way to spend a weekend! I’ve learned a lot of useful ways to relax and go deeper into a place of stillness. Thank you for a wonderful time. The crystal exercises were very useful and also enjoyable.

I am stunned by the impact this course has had on me, I feel like I’ve been transforming over the course!… I always felt like an individual, despite being in a group setting, and was cared for as a client… a very professional but gentle and human approach.
Group Meditation Course Class 2008: I first started meditating about 10 years ago. I attended this course to increase my focus on my meditation and help me to explore my meditation more. This course has taken my meditation to new levels. Techniques I’ve learnt on this course have really improved the quality of my meditation and have helped me get stiller quicker. It has also given me some invaluable life skills. The course has been assisted with concise notes at the end of each class which provide an excellent reference guide.
I enjoyed the course so much that it became my weekly treat to myself. The techniques I learnt and the environment we were placed in allowed me to totally relax and lots of things in my life have became clearer because of this. I am about to embark on a career change and these relaxation techniques will help me stay focused instead of stressed. I would whole-heartedly recommend the course and the friendly trainers that run it!
