Course reviews and comments

"I think this has been the most genuinely useful, inspiring and transformational course – not just for me but my family too – I’ve ever experienced."

Laura, Edinburgh PDC 2020 (completed May 2020)

"The PDC is the best training I’ve ever done and so applicable to every day life. I went to university in my 40s and got a few degrees but was terribly disappointed by the lack of ‘mind expansion’, but the PDC provided that."

Josephine, Edinburgh PDC 2019
