Testimonials from Previous Students
“Great class! I’m so happy I took the Meditation for Health Care Professionals class. I loved being guided through the meditations so I could experience them for myself and gain a deeper understanding of how to use these in the future. Emmy provides a comprehensive overview of the spiritual, emotional and physical benefits of meditation, and guides participants through several different meditation techniques. My toolkit for stress reduction techniques continues to grow thanks to Emmy’s classes. I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned and share this with others, while also weaving these strategies into my own daily self-care practice. Thank you for another great course, Emmy!” Caito Bowles-Roth, OTR
“After taking the Meditation for Health Care Professionals, I have a greater understanding of how it can be implemented during my occupational therapy sessions. I feel more understanding about the benefits of meditation and feel more confident about incorporating it with my clients of various backgrounds.” Kali Campbell, OTR/L
“This webinar was exactly what I needed. I am feeling feelings of burnout from working in my practice setting. I need the structure of a mindfulness practice to help me work through these sensation.” Olivia Glover White, OTD, OTR/L, C/NDT, RYT200
“Thank you, Emmy, I have had a regular meditation practice for 12 years now but I love to see the evidence behind this and to have the information synthesized in such a way like you have done. Despite the many benefits I have gained, I have been reluctant to introduce my clients to it out of fear of being able to articulate the reasoning behind it. I will feel more confident doing so now from the structure provided here.” Lee Byars, Occupational Therapist B. App. Sc (OT)
“I really enjoyed taking this course, Meditation for Health Care Professionals, and found it directly applicable to my personal and professional life. I believe all people could benefit from taking this course and furthering their awareness of their own emotional tendencies and how to quickly embrace these tendencies in order to move forward in a loving light. Patients in all settings would benefit from having a practitioner who has an awareness of meditation, to either plant the seed for the patient to look into this more independently, or practice in the clinical settling. Thank you, Emmy!” Emily Thurner, OTR/L
