"... Maria brings a powerful combination of wisdom as a senior business leader and negotiator and enormous talent in guiding the deeply personal meditation process. This blend of experiences gives her the ability to understand and relate to clients on many levels."
Lesley Parrott,
Principal, Lesley Parrott Consulting
"... Working with Maria has taught me the difference in results that come from focus as opposed to multi-tasking.  I have learned to get present before I interact with people so that I can devote my full attention to the issue at hand.  I can also move through a very large list of things that need to be done and am more in control of my day."
Jan Kestle,
President, Environics Analytics
"... Meditating... has enabled me to be more calm and focused in meetings, making me more effective at my job.  Small things that at one time may have bothered me tend to roll off, having minimal effect.  I feel more connected to my inner self, more confident and optimistic for the future."
Judy Sims,
Vice President, Product Development and Business Management, Thestar.com
"... Meditation is a powerful coping skill for times of stress, and an amazing, life-enhancing practice in ordinary, daily life. It is simple, and its effects are immediate."
Peggy Guest,
President, Imperial Street Design
"Mindfulness Meditation provides a time to calm the mind and go within to find peace. It helps me to be more aware (and mindful) of everyday experiences and to listen better. It positively impacts communication. Meditation helps to put things in perspective."
Kathy Wilkie,
Registrar & Executive Director, College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario
"I started meditating... because I wanted to quiet my mind and learn how to be present and in the moment. My meditation practice has transformed my life, personally and professionally. I feel calm, patient, peaceful, present, kind and joyful...It has allowed me to be more productive because I'm able to stay focused."
Peggie Pelosi,
Founder/ President, Orenda Connections
"I attended Maria's Mindful Golf Workshop in 2007... I am calmer and more thoughtful on the golf course and I don't get down on myself as much for poor shots. ...After taking the course I won the Senior Ladies Club Championship. I can honestly say that I believe that the learnings from the Workshop contributed to this latter success."
Gail Kilgour,
member of St. George's Golf & Country Club
"I am thrilled to let you know how your Mindful Golf Workshop has helped my golf game; bottom line: my scores are better, my handicap is lower. I have more confidence that I can execute the shots that I want; I have more good shots and fewer bad shots... I can highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their game, and their enjoyment of this great sport."
Janice May,
member of Meadowbrook Golf & Country Club
"I've been thrilled with the results I've seen after having attended the Mindful Golf Workshop. ... I immediately started putting the techniques and concepts I learned into practice on the course. Over the season I took ten strokes off my game... I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who wants to improve their game, be more relaxed, less frustrated, and have more fun."
