Results

I’m clearer and stronger with meditation and for the most part, I can get myself out of the story we create and put on others without knowing it. Now, when I’m in those moments where I get pulled out of myself with strong emotions I can stop myself and notice that I’m not attached to whatever is causing me to lose my balance at the moment. I can let go of what I can’t change and instead focus on me.

I’m sleeping better, feel less stress and frustration. I feel relaxed. I really like breathing. If you are ready to do the work, then this is the place to do it.

This experience was Priceless.

Krista Stevenson

I feel empowered! I’ve been given the tools to do the meditations on my own and do a deeper dive into the areas of my life that need attention.

I can dive into the memories and old stories, and I can change the energy surrounding them. I can change that energy to better serve me. I was fearful and didn’t want to ‘go there’, but with your guidance and aftercare I no longer feel fearful, I feel strengthened!

I felt supported once we had developed that technique for breathing through each nostril. (Before that, I found that I was in a ‘mood’ that I couldn’t shake after the meditation) Having that aftercare was monumental for me. Thank you so much!

April, you are a dynamo! There is an energy that you create from within you that you gift to others. I’m so blessed to be the recipient of that energy. You are my calm in turbulence and my call to action when I feel stalled. I thank you for your patience with me, and for your objective support. Xxoo

Angela Rae

I wasn’t sure about meditation. I have never done it. But I really enjoyed being guided and it was great. I look forward to our meetings and felt absolutely supported by the whole group.

I feel good. Sleeping better, my heart feels more open, not so heavy with stress and anger.

I have a bit more control over my emotions and my past doesn’t haunt me. I don’t feel like I will let things bother me as much. And if they do I have the tools to help me through.
