Can never ask another person to do what we are not willing to do.  Each of the trainers practice what they teach and in turn for the four days we practiced, and in quiet reflection, our bodies helped us to continue.

I have had such a fantastic experience. I have had some experience in meditation but didn’t continue on with it. With this four day training it has really opened my mind to realize how much this can help our children. I am very anxious to start this with my 4th grade class. Our children are …

The course was all entailing and good. The training is not so much a training but an enlightenment to self empowerment toward healing.

Personally from these four days, I feel de-stressed and unblocked in my energy with tools to maintain my self-care. What I like is the process is non-threatening and gradual approach to becoming centered. Excited to take back to students and community.

I’ve really enjoyed the training, especially the lectures because it supplements the experiential exercises better – provides a purpose. For myself personally, the training helped remind me how much I miss and enjoy using mindfulness, meditation, and awareness everyday. I’ll definitely get back with it and make a stronger effort to practice every day.

I loved the training. I was so emotionally drained, but in a good way. I released so much pain that I was holding in. I also realized that I need to take care of myself. I’m like a sponge, I hold everything in and don’t let it out.

I believe this experience is the result of prayers that have been sent for help and now those prayers have been answered. I will be forever grateful for this …
