Testimony from a participant:
"Paulette really brought the Mindful Self-Compassion course alive. I originally enrolled in the program because I am studying mindfulness from a research perspective. I think the stars aligned to bring this program to me at a crucial time in my life. MSC practice and our group cohesion helped me through several difficult life events that occurred unexpectedly during the course of the program. MSC is an invaluable tool for living your best life. The course was truly a gift. Paulette did an amazing job creating a safe, healing environment. She has a fabulous energy and I hope to continue to practice with her in the future.”
