"I never fail to learn something highly valuable when I exercise the good judgment to attend one of Cynthia's presentations."
Vic Indiano, Esp., Indiano Law Group
"Starting a meditation practice can feel daunting, but Becky and Cindy know how to keep it simple and still deliver depth. They have created a supportive community that helps build consistency and skills, with a lightness of heart that we all need."
Katie Harpstrite, Attorney and Owner of Vast Yoga
"I've never meditated before and was a little skeptical, but after one session with Cindy and Becky, I was hooked. I love how they work together, with Cindy giving the introduction about the week's theme and Becky leading the guided meditation. Their voices are soothing, yet enthusiastic, and their insights are spot-on. It only takes about 15 minutes of your time three times a week. The sessions are even recorded, so if you miss a session and want to catch up (or if you just want to review a session), you can watch them that way."
Carole Levitt, Owner, Internet For Lawyers/CLE Speaker/ABA author
"A big thank you to Becky and Cindy for reintroducing me to mindfulness meditation. Even though I have had mindfulness training in the past, my practice had got a little rusty over the past few years. After your sessions, I always feel much calmer and am glad that I attended. Keep spreading the word - the legal profession needs you!"
Mark Gallant, Attorney at Law
"I have found this summer’s Legal Burnout Solution: Mindfulness Community sessions to be quite useful. The regularity of the sessions is helpful in enforcing a schedule so meditation actually happens. I appreciate the prompt start of the sessions and the care taken to avoid running over time. Cynthia and Becky are great at minimizing the preliminary remarks and getting right to the meditation instruction."
Federal Litigation Attorney, Seattle, WA
"I attended the Mindfulness for Lawyers webinar, 'Practicing Law in a COVID-19 World.'
This was the first time I heard the term “zoom fatigue.” Finally, someone put into words what I was experiencing but unable to articulate since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I felt burnt out with computer usage, unable to focus.
Hearing someone thoughtfully articulate this concept to me helped me realize I was not alone in my experiences. Naming what we are experiencing is powerful. During this webinar, I also learned ways to cultivate daily gratitude, which I have been carrying with me since the webinar.
Becky Howlett has helped me both personally and professionally by teaching me to become more present in my daily live, without judgment of myself. I have been doing my best to find small ways to practice mindfulness ever since."
Jacqueline Patton, Staff Attorney, Eviction Defense Collaborative, San Francisco
"I invited Cindy and Becky to present twice to the PBA Solo and Small Firm Section. During both events, they educated the attendees on mindfulness and took them through a guided meditation. Everyone appreciated the experience. If you are looking for someone to present to your organization, or are looking for a session where you can learn about relaxation techniques, I highly recommend Cindy and Becky."
Jennifer Ellis, Chair, PBA Solo and Small Firm Section
"Cynthia & Becky are excellent presenters with a personal interest and passion for the topic of mindfulness. Their programming is so worthwhile! During the webinar, they shared many hands on tips from mantras to breathing techniques. I would definitely recommend their program to any professional looking to incorporate mindfulness into their daily routine!"
Susan Scheer, The Scheer Immigration Law Group
"First I wanted to share that at the end of May I had been talking to my therapist on the phone and feeling like I had been doing my best, but I had this low-level anxiety pretty much all the time. I just wanted to feel at peace. I wanted to feel safe in my body. So she said (for like the hundredth time) that I needed to start a regular meditation practice.
I had tried meditating in the past, but had trouble sticking with it. So she said just think about it. If you want to/are ready to, you'll start. I kid you not, 10 mins after that call I saw Becky's post for the online meditation community on LinkedIn. I'm really in to synchronicity, so I thought, well this is it. If I really want to start doing this, here's my opportunity.
I also started doing HIIT workouts the same week I started the online meditation community. There was a huge shift in energy almost immediately, and I found the more I did one or the other, they actually reinforced each other. Mind-body connection! So I really feel that this has helped me start a consistent practice. I'm not at peace all the time, but I am at peace a lot more of the time. Thank you both for creating this group!"
“I think meditation is a valuable tool, but to get busy lawyers to commit to trying something new, definitely need to keep it bite sized at least in the intro. There's plenty of info on the internet but who wants to sift through it? So I really appreciated the brief intro!”
"The presenters were very thorough and knowledgeable about their craft.”
“I started doing meditation a few months before the pandemic and realized how helpful in all aspects of life it can be. Not just for stress, but for happiness, building relationships, feeling more etc. This session was a reminder of all the benefits of practicing meditation. I am looking forward to future sessions.”
