"The children looked forward to Ms. O'Leary's visits. She taught them calming techniques through breathing, stretching and song.  We received many positive comments from parents stating their children were using the techniques in situations such as doctor's visits, spats with siblings, behavioral issues and other frightening situations.  Not only did the children learn these techniques but the teachers also learned these skills and carried them over to the classroom learning that year and in the future.  Ms. O'Leary's enthusiasm for mindfulness is catching!"

Diane and Sue, kindergarten teachers

"Wendy O'Leary is a gem! Her presence is loving, compassionate, and giving. I have been blessed to be in the meditation group she has created to meet weekly for meditation, teaching, discussion and sharing. A wonderful community of interconnected beings has been formed!  "I find wisdom here" one member shared. I agree!  My practice is strengthened and my life is changed from her facilitation and the support and inspiration of this group!"

Johanna, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

"Wendy's approaches with children and commitment and support for families is unmatched.  It has accounted for significant improvement in how my son handles stress, manages time and pays attention to his feelings." 

Deb, social worker and middle school mother

"Sitting with the group gives me the ability to sit for 30 minutes in silence, something quite difficult for me to do alone at home.  After we meditate, there is a brief reading.  Then with Wendy gently guiding us, there is a back and forth sharing of our thoughts and insights about the reading.  I am learning so much through the wisdom of this group- to be more mindful, to be more aware of my thoughts and actions and to pause before I speak--and so, so much more!

Wendy's meditation group has bee a gift for me."

Ruth, group participant

"All that we have learned from you over the last few years has brought peace to many students during their busy days.  It has validated my feelings all along about how children internalize anxiety and how it affects what they do"
