What Students Are Saying
The Art of Engaged Mindfulness provides a wealth of knowledge, tools and resources, which are directly applicable to coaching individuals or groups!
Ann Marie’s gentle teaching style and complete absence of judgement in The Art of Mindfulness was just what this stressed out lapsed meditator needed! Thanks to her skillful instruction, I now have a mindfulness practice that is so right for me it very quickly and naturally became part of the fabric of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or a more interesting and loving group of fellow students with whom to share it with. Truly life changing.
I loved this course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness]! It brought me strength, understanding and joy at getting to know myself in a different and more substantive way. I am already using my learning to be a better coach for my clients. My gratitude for this course overflows!
I came away from [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] with the value of a blended learning program (virtual class, partner discussions, superb reading material, mediation approaches/tools, mindfulness practice applications), many classmate connections from around the world, a regular mediation practice, and a sense of a calm and compassionate world.
This class is a terrific investigation of the ways that mindfulness and meditation can support both the coach and client, with specific practices, tips for consistency, and scientific evidence all explored. I learned new skills for leading meditation class, supporting client well being, and deepening my own meditation practice.
I not only enjoyed this course (The Art of Engaged Mindfulness) but have personally benefitted from the techniques and behaviors that were introduced in the class which I in turn introduced in my life. I am a true beneficiary of this program.
This course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] was an invitation to revisit my meditation practice and also to see how I can implement such a key tool with my own clients.
What seemed apparent in the course description [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] cannot contain the experience of going on this journey with Ann-Marie and a class full of incredible people. Because of this course, I’m a better coach and a wiser human.
The Art of Engaged Mindfulness allowed me to become more flexible with my own established meditation practice. I really enjoyed the opportunity to dialogue with fellow coaches interested in deepening their own practice and sharing it with the world.
Great introduction to the MCS program. Highly recommend it!
