"Stephen Archer (MWFO) is a terrific teacher – insightful, patient and inspiring. I truly believe that the practice of mindfulness is completely relevant in a work setting – busy people in the workplace, especially those charged with leading teams or solving thorny problems (and that would be all of us!) need to find a way to bring the signal to noise ratio into balance. Mindfulness helps mightily with this, and will encourage you to bring a sense of ease into your interactions with people and in the way you seek solutions or insight."

"The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand strongly endorses mindfulness as a useful way to improve positive mental health and resilience. We recommend Stephen Archer (MWFO) as an experienced mindfulness practitioner."

"We have used the services of Stephen Archer (MWFO) to help us to develop our Wellness Programme and Policy at Air New Zealand Cargo. During the period of programme development and in conducting training of our workforce, I have found Stephen Archer to be knowledgeable and professional in his approach to the subject of wellness and workplace stress. Stephen has presented to two target audiences, namely half day sessions for managers and 90-minute sessions for shop floor employees, both of which have been well received."

"Jon Unal (MWFO) delivered a combined presentation and workshop for our Bachelors and Masters students as part of a subject. The presentation fitted right into the topic with an extensive insight into mindfulness. After his presentation the classroom dynamics changed. Students become more focused, more sensitive to discussion topics and more compassionate with each other while interacting in classroom activities. Jon’s presentation was incredibly informative and entertaining with easy-to-digest yet thought-provoking material. He is really engaging with different age groups and finds the voice with people from all different ethnic backgrounds. Mindfulness is a missing concept in education. It should be taught and practiced on a daily basis by students and teaching professionals. Looking forward to Jon’s next seminar!"

"People from DOC attended a six-week mindfulness course. There was an underlying theme of how to manage the demands of work in a busy office, how at any one time, our attention is drawn across competing tasks, and how to remain present in meetings, offering others our undivided attention.
Stephen Archer (MWFO) began each session with a short talk about mindfulness and being present. Through structured exercises we were guided through stages of deepening relaxation so that we were in a receptive state. We were encouraged to feel where our body was at. This allowed the busyness of daily life to drop away. Stephen offered us variety during the sessions. We practised conversations whilst being fully present and aware. At the end of each session, we completed a self-evaluation rating about our current state both at work and in our personal life. People reported noticeable gains in focus while at their workstation. Especially an increased awareness of where their attention was drawn and their conscious effort to bring their focus back to the present moment and task."

"All staff attending, thoroughly enjoyed Neil Shepherd’s (MWFO) presentation about mindfulness. As a presentation to support workers in a mental health setting, his emphasis was in the right place; on being kind to ourselves.
