“I learned that if we’re mindful of how we respond and what our physiology is telling us at gut level, we can achieve what we want instead of just being reactionary.”

-William, IT Architect, Fortune 500 company

“The sessions restored my energy and made me more productive.”

-Corporate class participant

“I’m an evangelical Christian. When I read the course included yoga and mindfulness, a cautionary flag went up. I was concerned the content would conflict with my beliefs. That wasn’t the case. Surprisingly, I found my faith strengthened.”

-Mike, IT Analyst, Fortune 500 company

“I was under enormous stress. My mother had recently died, my blood pressure was high and I had gained weight. But before the class was over, I had lost 20 pounds, my blood pressure was normal and, best of all, I wasn’t screaming at people anymore.”

-Patricia, Senior Business Process Analyst, Fortune 500 company

“As a skeptic of the subject matter, I was impressed by the way in which the material was presented…and the methods to help us try them. It definitely helped me deal with the stresses here at work.”

-Corporate class participant

“The course materials and format afforded a minimum of schedule impact both personal and professional and left plenty of time for practice between sessions.”

-Corporate class participant

“I remember one difficult supervisor. Even the sight of her was enough to stress me out. I learned exercises that helped me greet her warmly, then listen and respond better. I was amazed that I learned as much as I did.”

Phyllis, Finance Specialist, Fortune 500 company

“Along with other lifestyle changes, the reduced stress has decreased my sick days generally much healthier. The improved health improved my productivity.”

-Corporate class participant

“The instructor is able to depict material so that it’s relatable and can be readily assimilated by the students. She provides a user-friendly way of understanding the material and is very good with fundamentals as well as deeper details.”

-William, IT Architect, Fortune 500 company

“I noticed things that used to annoy me didn’t as much as they used to. Things that used to habitually annoy me, I could detach from. Another thing I got out of this program was increased concentration.”

-Larry, Facilities Analyst, Fortune 500 company

“The mindfulness practice is not about mind-LESS-ness.  It is not about emptying your mind and chanting the sacred mantras.  It’s about BEING, OPERATING, LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT.  The shiny coins of past success can always be reviewed later.”

-Corporate class participant

“The practicality of the process is second to none. The experience is indispensable.”

-Corporate class participant

“This program was a great starting point for my new leadership circle program. Others can benefit.”

-Corporate class participant

“I was amazed to realize, after being in a session for a few minutes, how stressed I was, and to immediately experience strategies that helped reduce the stress.”
