I not only enjoyed this course (The Art of Engaged Mindfulness), but also 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Art of Engaged Mindfulness: Settling the Mind for Intuition to Emerge. The format of the course enabled me to learn about the impact of meditation and therefore choose to fit more meditation into my lifestyle. Through the class, I expanded my knowledge of meditation and mindfulness, strengthened my practice, and met some great people. Special thanks to Ann-Marie, who shared her enormously rich insights, experience, and tools to help us become more effective in minding our mind.

Mindfulness Coaching School has been an amazing resource for me on many levels. I took S-T-R-E-T-C-H! when Ann-Marie suggested that it would be a great addition to what we had been working on in our coaching sessions. The class was so inspiring I decided to become a coach myself! I love Ann-Marie’s style of teaching; the academic aspect, the mindful/spiritual piece and the opportunity to work with other like-minded people during homework sessions.
When I initially signed up for Right Speech, I was skeptical that my communication skills could be improved by reading a couple of books and participating in a couple of class exercises, but boy was I wrong. Completing this course has drastically improved my communication skills – on a personal and professional level. I now have a full toolbox of techniques to better communicate with co- workers, family, and practically anyone. The skills that I’ve learned have helped me improve relationships, facilitate meetings, and interact with others much more effectively. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their communication skills.

Having the privilege of experiencing Ann-Marie as an instructor for courses, as well as a Mentor Coach in group and individual contexts, I am delighted to sing her praises. As a teacher, she is always engaging; helping the student gain new awareness and leading the way to new experiences. As a supervisor, Ann-Marie is supportive and warm, yet challenging, wickedly funny, and clever in her insights. Any opportunity to work with her is a gift.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! changes you and takes you to the next level – you are no longer thinking about your future plans and dreams but taking real action/steps toward your dream life. This class enables you to notice and practice growth mindset in your life and in coaching. It encouraged me to trust the moment and myself, without focusing on fear of the unknown. Thank you for this experience!

I am so thankful to MCS and the amazing coaches I have met in my personal journey. The learning and insight has been life changing. I am amazed every day at the transition this journey has taken for me. I love all aspects of coaching. It feels very rewarding when a client is inspired to maximize their potential and when they realize how amazing, strong and brave they truly are.
As Ann-Marie would say: “Deep bow” of gratitude to MCS and Ann-Marie!

MCS classes have helped me expand my therapy skills and opened up new perspectives with my clients. Ann-Marie’s style of teaching matches my needs so well. Her intuition, playfulness, and sense of adventure are evident and in play throughout class. I look forward to continuing this journey of personal growth that will lead me to my bliss, and to help others to do the same!
I am so grateful for the new skills I am developing through the course Right Speech. Emotional stability is so important to the whole-person, and I now have a practical model to regulate my inner climate and improve my social world. Most important, I can share this gift with others.
It has been a real life changing experience at MCS. Ann-Marie is the best teacher one can ever dream to have- wise, compassionate, cheerful and so much fun to be around. I loved every single class I took at the school. It’s not only inspiring, nutritious for both mind and heart, but also so much fun! I also love the community, everyone is so kind, nice, wise and compassionate- great connection and intimacy. Along the way, members of the community support each other, its so beautiful, I feel so grateful and blessed to have attended the school and be a part of the community. Ann-Marie, Brittany, all faculties, and everyone I have encountered from the school, thank you!
