Kristin was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and understanding of the life of a teacher since she is a fellow educator. I am so appreciative of Kristin and her expertise presented in such a nonjudgmental and calm-inducing way.

Mindful Awareness Meditation (10 to 20 minutes)

  • Resting awareness on an “anchor” like the breath, sounds, or sensations in the body

Kindness & Compassion Practice (10 to 20 minutes)

Body Scan Practice (15 to 30 minutes)

I believe this positively impacted me as a human and it helped increase my self-awareness as a teacher. My outlook on forgiveness has also changed and it’s allowed me to challenge the ways I approach conflict resolution in the classroom.

Kristin is a very audience-driven presenter. She is very flexible in meeting the needs of her audience [and] is able to adapt and change plans if they require a different direction. Her approach is one that explains a strategy and then asks the audience to practice it; there is a good balance of theory and practice.

I loved the hands on guided practice that we did. It is helpful to hear Kristin’s (super soothing) voice as she gently guides us back to the present moment. I would highly recommend Kristin to teach you about mindfulness, she is awesome!
