Mindfulness Meditation practice with Mary Ann is always a highlight in my week--not only because I find the practice infinitely beneficial to my wellbeing, but because I’ve met fascinating and lovely people that have brought much insight and humor to my every day. It’s the best gift I’ve ever given myself. Thank you Mary Ann! ~ Lori, Arlington
Over the last two years, weekly Mindfulness Meditation sessions with Mary Ann have become an anchor-point in my life - a space to breathe deeply, take a step back, and enjoy the guidance of a warm and caring teacher and the insights and humor of a wonderful group of fellow travelers. ~ J.W.
- I’ve been attending Mary Ann’s weekly meditation practice sessions for several years now. Among the many things that make Mary Ann a wise and effective teacher of mindfulness is how down-to-earth she is. She lives the life we all live, with all its loveliness, exasperations, and stresses, and she shows her students exactly how to face these challenges with strength, patience, and gentleness. As an added bonus, does it all with a great sense of humor and irony. I’ve learned so much from the groups she leads. –Jeri Z
When I walk into Mary Ann's classes, I bring along all my burdens of stress, mental to-do lists, and a chronic sense of time scarcity. By the time I walk out, I have found the calm of just being a living person in this moment, and I am more present, more joyful, and more fully alive than I was just an hour before. With humility, heartfulness, and grace, she consistently reminds me what a gift it is to be alive. -Ana V
