We meet many people in our lives, and I believe I met one yesterday in you that will have a lasting impact on how I lead and change my life from tomorrow on...."
Ann Grabowski, LCSW Director of Youth & Family Services
"I never like our trainings . . . that is until you came! You brought new insight into how much control each one has over his/her positive outlook on self, others, and life."
Patricia Niesyn Youth and Family Services
"I thought the training was really good. However, I didn't realize how good it was until I found myself practicing the breathing technique, and being mindful of things that upset me and what's really going on. I wasn't even aware that I was doing these things until I stopped to think about the training.--Thanks Robert! Your training will be remembered!"
Riverfront Community Center
"Robert taught us how to be comfortable with our laughing in such a easy and unassuming manner. His Tai Chi was original, very easy to follow and very nourishing to do. And of course, his mime was exquisite and amazing.
I was really amazed at all the life that was called out of me and the whole group that day."
Mark D. Mariner, JD, MA
The Mariner Center For Human Development
"I worked in the wellness industry for 15 years. I not only gave many wellness-based presentations but attended numerous ones. What I found so wonderful about yours, both for myself and our students, is that it is so easy to take away the idea of smiling and laughing as a strategy for dealing with stress and a means for improving your overall health.
I found, as a teacher, your presentation to be a useful tool in dealing with others. It was a great reminder of how powerful a smile can be and easy it is to lift someone to their potential instead of trampling on their spirit. I can't tell you how many times I get my class saying "Very good, very good, Yeah!". In fact, I've got my family doing it too. It can be contagious!"
Carla Grimaldi, MSEd. Read/Write/Now Adult Learning Center
"Your presentation today was a true gift to our staff!. . . everyone loved your work.... especially the fact that you model the behaviors you encouraged us to strive towards. Thank you so much for bringing all of us back to the here and now and why we do our jobs every day"
Chris G.Program Coordinator, Creative Experiences
“Mindfulness is being aware of what you are doing, while you are doing it, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness has helped me be more present in life. The practices of sitting meditation, standing meditation, walking meditation, moving meditation and everyday living meditation, have helped me tremendously. They have helped me see myself, others, my situation and the ups and downs of life more clearly. Mindfulness has helped me focus, concentrate, and live a life with more awareness, kindness, compassion and joy.” -Robert Rivest
