Your talk was excellent and provided valuable information to our audience. Over 20,000 people registered for the virtual annual conference from over 140 countries from around the world! Your talk on mindfulness struck the right balance of science, practical advice and then exercises. This was so helpful given the current state of the world.

    You ran a great two-day seminar with the right balance of lightheartedness, intellectual pursuit and an open and encouraging style. We’ve been married for 37 years and a two-day mindfulness tune-up was just what we needed.

    I want to thank you again for the great workshop on Sunday.  I was inspired to incorporate what we learned more into my life and also into the counseling and teaching I do. This approach is something I want to focus more on in my career and personal life. Thank you for the inspiration and the tools to get started!
