Essential Mindfulness for Lawyers® Basic Training:

“I think you know that I am teaching…mindfulness programs at the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School…. I want to thank you again for a really wonderful last class. It was infused with a deep energy that actually felt transforming for me and changed a few conversations I had the following day….”

“I so enjoyed the Mindfulness for Lawyers MCLE. It has been the most valuable MCLE that I have completed in over 21 years of law practice. Thank you for putting this program together and sharing yourself and your practice with us. I am truly grateful.”

“…To sum it up, I really did feel that I learned a tremendous amount in such a short time. The lessons were great reminders of what I have previously learned in mindfulness classes and then highlighted in the legal framework. I found myself thinking about the lessons and applying those techniques across many situations in life.”

“I loved every minute and every dollar spent…. I completed course six yesterday; and I found it to be the most inspirational of all! You are an awesome teacher…. I believe that all lawyers would benefit from this training…. I so appreciate the written materials and bonus slides, as well, for future reference.”

"I notice how much stress is created by worrying about things that might happen in the future. [Mindfulness] helps me to ask, 'What do I need to get through today, or the next day?'"

Assistant District Attorney

"[T]he work that we are doing is helping me to develop a new compass. It’s going to take some work, but I think I will find a way to reconcile who I am and what I do. This should benefit not only me, but also my clients."

Litigation Associate

"Mindfulness will very much positively impact my work as it will allow me to better manage my response to stressful situations, improving focus and mental clarity, thereby allowing for more productivity and thoughtfulness."

Corporate Associate

“I did child abuse cases for years and it was soul-crushing.... [B]eing curious and compassionate towards the adversary…help(s) the adversarial relationship be more about the work and...[about] understanding that when [someone is] being a jerk, I don’t have to take it personally."

Assistant District Attorney

"Should be mandatory for all; the folks who need it most, don’t realize they need it."
