Testimonials

 

Judy

“Mara exudes mindful compassion and self compassion in her being.  The course is done in the most gentle, lighthearted and nurturing way and provides wonderful tools in a well thought out way to bring greater mindfulness and self compassion into your daily life. I have found myself not only being more self compassionate to myself , but also noticing when my children , husband, friends are being too harsh on themselves and reminding them also to bring some loving kindness and patience back to themselves  as they  journey through  life. “
