“Meditation gave me my life back. I just wanted to thank you again for everything Lou. You have been a great inspiration and I am a better and happier person for having had the opportunity to meet you and work with you.”  (full text)    Jennifer Lang – Student

“Our company has been going through a time of transition, and I brought in Mindfulness Meditation sessions as an important stress management tool for employees. Lou has provided both a four-week and a ten-week program for our company. I cannot recommend these sessions highly enough.  Lou is a compassionate and skillful teacher. He can ably respond to the different needs of the group participants and at the same time be available as a one-on-one support to individuals when challenges and issues come up.

Lou is not only a terrific instructor, he is also a wonderful role model for the benefits of Meditation. His calm and caring presence has made a tremendous difference to the working lives of the participants.”

Marla Goldstone – Manager, Training and Development, Rogers

“Lou’s approach is very open and gentle. It is obvious that Lou practices what he preaches and from the moment I began the program, I knew I was in the hands of a master instructor. I never felt that Lou was selling meditation or trying to convince any of us that it was right for everyone but he always managed to keep all of the people in the course motivated and practicing on a regular basis.”  E. W. – Computer Consultant

“One very welcome improvement Mindfulness Meditation has made in my life is that at night when the neighbour’s dog barks or a fire engine or ‘Boom car’ goes past, I don’t get mad, I just notice, then go back to sleep.

“I went to your website and I felt a wonderful feeling in my heart, one of appreciation and happiness. I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to be your student. I am very grateful and proud of you, as a teacher and especially as a person.”  J. K. – Student

“I would definitely be willing to share my experiences with mindfulness and quitting smoking. As you know, I have tried everything in the past, including Zyban and the patch. Mindfulness has definitely helped me to focus on how cravings are transitory. They, like all sensations in the body pass fairly quickly. You can definitely use meditation in a ‘mind over matter’ way to conquer addiction. I am convinced of it, and surprised more people don’t do it.”  S.S., Publisher

“Thanks Lou. This is the worst time of year work-wise, and although I haven’t meditated for a while (sorry!), I do find I regularly have ‘mindful moments,’ usually when I’m at my craziest. They often come by themselves, which is neat, or I tell myself to ‘take a reality check’ and put things in perspective. This really does help, and it wouldn’t have happened six months ago.” K. – Projects Manager – Rogers Media

“Thanks for such a great encouragement, Lou! I am slowly noticing improvements in my life. You have no idea what a positive impact you are having on so many people. Thank you!!”  G.P., BCom, MBA  – Training Support Specialist, Human Resources, University Health Network, Toronto Western Hospital

“Lou, I should tell you that I have on a number of occasions over the last couple of months been told how calm I am and what a calming effect I have had on others — I have to thank you for this.  I realized that the reason people have been telling me this is because of the work that I did with you before the holidays. I definitely feel better and calmer — not to say that I still don’t get moments of anxiety — I am just much more aware and try to deal with them before they escalate.”   V.P. – Account Manager, Rogers

“How can I tell you how much I appreciate your dedication, professionalism, expertise, time and effort during these 6 sessions of Mindful Meditation?  Let me assure you that this course has had an extremely significant and measurable positive impact in my life and the lives of those around me. Thanks to your teachings I have a more positive outlook in life. I strongly believe I am more focused and able to make and act on important and difficult decisions. I have been suffering from anxiety and have received medical treatment to control it. Since I started the course, under your guidance and supervision, the symptoms have almost disappeared.  I feel more in control and happier as a result. The tapes and support material has been of great help to allow me to practice and perfect the skills learned during the sessions. The retreat was amazing! Lou, you are a great teacher! Your insight, honesty, organization, preparedness and kindness are appreciated. You have made a significant impact in my life.  For all of the above I thank you.”  M.V. – Major School Board in GTA
