  • Here is How Meditation Has Helped Some of My Clients

    Lara's Real Life Changes series was amazing. I've been struggling to make meditation a part of my daily life and this course helped me realize that there are different ways to practice, even when you are busy. I looked forward to Lara's support and guided meditations each week!


    - Donna (May 2020)

    I loved the intro to meditation series! The small class size promotes an intimate atmosphere where all participants can share their thoughts. Lara is a great instructor and leads the class through insightful conversations and deep, restorative meditation. I learned several meditation techniques that I will experiment with as I continue to practice on my own. Thanks Lara! See you on Tuesdays at your weekly drop in classes!


    - Alina (May 2020)

    I recently completed an online meditation and mindfulness series with Lara of 'Listen Lightly'. I couldn't be more pleased with the knowledge, warmth and professionalism of Lara's clear inspirational teaching! Learning how to benefit from the various meditation methods Lara taught has provided a great shift in my life helping me to deal with daily challenges in a much more positive and calming way. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is looking for an introduction to meditation or to deepen an existing practice. Forever Grateful.


    - Debra Kennedy-Johnson (April 2020)

    Amazing how 1-1/4 hour each week made me aware of how I can develop tools to manage my anxiety - the goal wasn't to dismiss the worry, but how to accept it and put it in perspective so I could be productive again. Being kind to yourself and others was key. I'm impressed how even remotely you can project a feeling of safety and comfort - thanks for helping me through a challenging time.


    - Participant (April 2020)

    Lara's mindfulness course was amazing and she's an excellent meditation instructor. She's encouraging, inspiring, and approachable. I highly recommend taking Lara's courses. It will change your life for the better.


    - Anonymous Participant (April 2020)

    I thoroughly enjoyed Lara’s four week Introduction to Mindfulness Series. She is a wonderful, thoughtful and encouraging instructor. The 30 Day Meditation Challenge emails Lara sent to us each morning were so helpful in establishing a daily habit. I would highly recommend this workshop!
