"I sort of signed up for this class on a whim. I've been looking into Buddhism for a few years, and I thought I had that part of my life mostly nailed down. Turns out I was wrong. I had tried to be mindful about everything all the time and I was so hard on myself that I ended up not really being mindful about anything. Mary's class changed that.
I'm a big fan of using small steps to make big change, and that's just what we did in this class. Everyday Mary sent out a small thing to do. I have a jam packed schedule and I could still fit in the fifteen or so minutes. Each of these lessons gave me something I could acomplish which made me feel like I wasn't wasting time, which is usually how I feel when I make myself do something like this.
I thought the best part was that every day we focused on different ways to be mindful. I always thought that to be mindful I needed to be hyper aware all the time, but Mary's class showed me different. One day I was focusing on feeling an orange and a few days later I was coloring. And I never felt like I needed to combine all these lessons so I could become a mindfulness Superhero.
I highly recommend taking this course. I'm probably going to redo it again and again."
"12 Days Of Mindfulness was a wonderful, very grounding set of exercises. For me, staying present in the moment can be a real challenge. My work is entirely interrupt-driven, and by the time I get home some days, my concentration is shattered. Mary's exercises helped me calm down, gain focus, and were very fun to do. I don't want to spoil anything, because the surprise factor was part of the joy, but the exercises were creative and original. Some of them even made me feel like by doing them I was helping make the world a little better - a truly unexpected bonus."

"Thank you for your excellent work with your Mindfulness e-course. What I liked a lot was it was free of any religious concepts, which makes it perfect for anyone with different belief systems. You are such a colorful sign post pointing way away from hopelessness to a bright future!"
"I absolutely loved 12 Days Of Mindfulness. It really helped me with my stress-levels; this school year has been quite stressful. So getting a little something each day to remind me to be positive, slow down, and take a little time to think is fantastic. I definitely recommend it!"
For two-thirds of my life, I've suffered from mental illnesses like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, and Depression. I fought with symptoms that caused other issues like incredibly low self-esteem and self-mutilation. I lived in a very dark place for a long time, but made it through to the other side where I landed on a pile of glitter.
Since then, I've realized how wonderful life is, even when it's hard. I've learned how to embrace who I am, whether that person is grumpy, overweight, or down-right strange. I've figured out how to love myself unconditionally, even on the toughest days, and that makes everything in life much more beautiful.
I'm an expert on self loathing and self love, and I'm here to help you quit the former and fall head first into the latter. I believe my struggle with mental illness and past self hate makes me more eligible to teach you about self love and the path to happiness because I'm not a self-proclaimed guru who can't relate to your feelings of despair. I know what both sides are like and I genuinely want to help you.
