What participants are saying:
"This has really helped me get in touch with what it feels like to be kind to myself by taking the time.”
“On a stressful and busy workday, the breathing exercises help calm me down.”
“I’ve been getting ‘stuck’ in my meditation practice – this gave me skills and tools to use in physical life outside of my internal practice.”
“This gave me immediate tools to stop my automatic reactions in stressful situations.”
“What has been useful is learning to put on the brakes of my thoughts and recognize the body sensations and building my awareness.”
“I learned to practice kindness, practice compassion, practice mindfulness and to be okay with being still and not latch onto thoughts and emotions.”
“I have discovered that I am a powerful and strong woman, capable of being mindful in the daily stresses of life.”
“Meditation is such an amazing tool. My goal is to be able to tune in as much as possible despite the chaos that surrounds us all, and to connect to the beautiful energies around me.”
“I was spending a lot of time ruminating over unnecessary and harmful thoughts and am learning to accept my emotions.”
“I am learning to stay present, even in the difficult moments.”
“I felt immediate benefits in that the body scan, the yoga, and the meditation were all helping me to settle more into being grounded and centered, even in difficult times. I also learned a great deal about how I habitually respond to stress, and realized that those automatic stress responses caused way more problems than they solved.”
