“As an organizer for our PD day, I was absolutely thrilled by how well-received our Mindfulness Training session was.  Tina’s enthusiasm and passion for mindfulness techniques was highly contagious! By physically experiencing the broad range of tools she presented (including an exciting brain-enhancing practice called ‘BrainDance’) it was easy to see how we can practically apply these techniques in our classrooms… and in our lives. This was one of our best PD sessions ever. I look forward to Tina returning to our school to do some sessions with our students. Applying this technique into our daily lives is so beneficial. I highly recommend this for every school.”             -Connie Sillito, Administrative Assistant, Willow Creek Composite High School

Tina, I just spoke to an admin in S.S.D. (Disabilities) who was at our in-service and she thoroughly enjoyed the day. She thought you were by far the best speaker, because you were “goal-oriented” and were trying to help us, and your presentation wasn’t about you.”     – Lori Jervis, Bed, Program Assistant, JR Shaw School of Business, NAIT
