Providing a Warm, Inviting and Calming Environment

I wanted to thank you for leading and hosting such a wonderful day – Mindfulness Meditation – this past Wednesday.  You provided such a warm, inviting and calming environment.  Your guidance and facilitation was outstanding.  I could hardly believe the day went so quickly, especially wondering before coming whether I would be able to be engaged the full day without restlessness.  It was amazing.  I learned a great deal and the day was perfect in my recent effort to incorporate greater mindfulness and balance in my life with help of meditation. I will be back. ”  David
