Mindfulness Based Stress Management Program
The program satisfied all my needs and expectations. If I only would have read on the topic of mindfulness, I do not believe that I would have had the courage to put into practice the teachings and meditate regularly. Since following the program, I feel less stressed, more anchored in my life, present and conscious of the choices that I can make daily. Although I was in group therapy during the program, I believe that it was really mindfulness that gave me the foundation for living with a greater sense of well-being and happiness. Thank you Gina for your compassion, your patience and for your teachings which provided a new way of living in all aspects of my life.

When I registered for this program, I had no idea that it would have such a great impact on my life. When I signed up, I was suffering from stress and anxiety on a daily basis. I now feel better about myself: more confident, positive, more focused and much calmer in facing challenges in my life. I have acquired tools that I can use on a daily basis that I know will reduce my stress. The program was the best thing I decided to do in a long time. Thank you, Gina!

The program exceeded my expectations. I loved it. I wanted to try meditating on my own but
never really knew where to look for a class and learn how to practice correctly. From the very
first week, I was able to better understand the stress I was living with and it gave me powerful
tools to deal with it all. Learning to be mindful will have positive repercussions in all
aspects of my life. I have recommended this program to many. Thank you so much!

I would definitely recommend this program to anyone in search of more control over stressful
situations, pain, depression and the strenuous demands of our hectic pace of life. The
teacher's vast experience and approach led to a most rewarding experience. Her compassion
toward participants encouraged their own compassion towards themselves and in my case, much
greater compassion towards my fellow human beings.

Firstly, I appreciated the atmosphere of respect and attentiveness that was created by you Gina. The program itself provided us with precious tools to not only practice meditation, but to also develop new ways of being that we are able to integrate into our daily life. Most remarkably, I learned how to face suffering with greater acceptance and without judging myself. This program represents a true opportunity to become a better person with greater awareness, compassion and inner freedom.

I found the program to be excellent. I have definitely experienced a significant decrease in
my overall stress level and all the physical symptoms I have had for years in only 8 sessions.
I've learned to respond instead of react, to speak my truth, to be less judgmental of
myself,to value myself and to observe my symptoms without fear. Thank you, Gina. You are a
wonderful teacher. The lessons I have learned are invaluable.

I really learned to cope with stress and diminish all the "side effects" that come with it. I've learned to really listen to myself as well as mindfulness practices that assist me in appreciating the beauty that surrounds daily life. This program is greatly beneficial to people who may be suffering emotionally or physically. Thank you for being so compassionate Gina.

The program definitely responded to my need to acquire patience, thoughtfulness, and awareness. I am now more effective in difficult circumstances and don't panic as much, or not at all, because I see a way out. I would definitely recommend this program to others. It has impacted all facets of my life. Thank you Gina for this opportunity. I feel very priviledged to have participated.
