"“I can’t say enough good things about Madeleine Eames’ weekly Mindfulness class. Madeleine is a profoundly gifted and compassionate teacher. I know I speak for many others when I say that the mindfulness lessons she shared with us made each of our lives brighter, more tolerable, and I’ve heard it said more than once by participants that they wish they’d known the simple technique of being mindful years earlier.” "

Kay McCracken

"Your experience and keen insight shone throughout our time together! It was very helpful for me. I love the fact I can revisit the meditations and all of the info from the course to strengthen my practice. Your class has reminded me to do more yoga practice and get back into my body. "

Audrey Spiller

"I loved the video lessons, the journaling and the meditations prior to journaling made the journaling much richer for me. Your questions were great and elicited a great amount of insight for me. I think no matter where a person is at, they will get something from your course at any level of readiness...it is gentle and welcoming in its spirit(like you) and I could go back through it and learn again and again🙏 "
