Testimonials specific to Cindy:
“What an incredible experience! I feel as if my life has new meaning and direction guided by principles of Mindful Living! For years I have been intrigued by meditation but too intimidated to try. Cindy’s gentle, guiding techniques made my introduction into meditation practice so easy and fruitful! Each week I looked forward to reviewing the reading materials and having a small group of thoughtful, supportive class participants made coming to each session something to truly look forward to. I look forward to being a part of the Mindful Living Community, gaining more inspiration and support through the readily available resources. For others looking to find their way into Mindfulness, I highly recommend this class!” ~Deborah Sussex
