Testimonials specific to Cindy:

“My experience of the Mindful Life Foundations Course as taught by Cindy Schmidt, was exceptional. The information and guidance provided by Cindy is something that I wish I had found years ago. The effect that mindfulness has had on my life has been profound and I have so much gratitude for having found and participated in the course. I highly recommend this class as mindfulness is now one of the primary tools for that I use in this living, breathing, and changing body. I am also more present in my everyday world and practice meditation daily. Cindy is a patient, profound, heartfelt guide and does not hesitate to give of her knowledge freely to you for the purpose of bettering your own life and understanding. Five Stars, six stars, seven stars.” ~ Jason Martinez
 

“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
