MET Changed Everything— Gabe’s Experience

gabe mindful emotions“Before Mindful Emotions Training, I was a ticking time bomb. I wasn’t necessarily angsty or enraged in the cool, sexy way either. I didn’t smoke cigarettes under bridges or ride my motorcycle at the break of dawn. I didn’t throw rocks through windows (although, really wanted to) or listen to death metal in garages.

Rather, I was a vat of nitroglycerin, brimming with repressed rage, paralyzed by anxieties, and so familiar with the feeling of panic that I could call it my most reliable friend.

In four weeks, Mindful Emotions Training changed everything. And the most unbelievable part is that it really wasn’t that difficult. In fact, it was really simple. Michael Taft is incredibly knowledgeable about the nature of our emotional hardwiring and how we can effectively relate to it, and presents this knowledge clearly through the course. Michael’s background as a legitimate long-term investigator of different meditative and scientific disciplines allows you to understand all of this new and exciting information in very accessible and clear way and point you in the right direction. I really have no reason to sugarcoat this testimonial or nerf the corners of your experience.

So just drop the stories and believe me when I say this course will undoubtedly lead to growth and your emotional progress as long as you just do the work. Just do it.” ~ Gabe Gould, MET student
