“It puts me in a loving state, which makes it easier to connect with other people.”

“It encourages me to be more vulnerable and empathetic. It sets that as the tone for the rest of the day.”

“It creates a sense of family.”

“I often feel stressed when entering the room with so many things going on. The meditation calms me down and I leave the room relaxed.”

“It increases alignment of the team so we can move more efficiently to better serve our members.”

“As someone who never meditated before, doing it as a group has made it so much easier to do. It’s built into our day. I love it. It’s changed my life.”
