"I came to Maureen because I hoped to explore yoga and meditation as a way to create some quiet and peace for myself at a time when I was juggling much change; some of it difficult to watch and manage.
What I most appreciate about my experience working with Maureen, both in yoga and meditation, is the change in perspective I now have. I can finally see where I fit in my family dynamic and how important it is to honor my needs and desires outside of that context so that I can care for the people I love while also remaining whole and in touch with those things that bring me personal joy.
I didn’t expect to develop a sense of connection and community with others who are also engaged in personal development with Maureen. Yet, I feel a wonderful sense of understanding, commonality of purpose and connection with the lovely people I have met who are also trying to improve themselves and find greater personal peace. It is an unexpectedly pleasant blessing.
Although the practice is never fully complete, I feel more grounded and whole. And despite the difficulties and hardships life may sometimes present, I am better able to see and appreciate the gifts that we receive even when everything seems uncomfortably tilted.
In addition to mediation and yoga, I have experienced an added physical benefit with my exploration of Craniosacral Therapy. This modality is helping to improve my sense of physical comfort and well-being after a significant back injury. This, coupled with longstanding knee problems, created alignment issues that were only minimally responsive to PT and massage. CST appears to be helping my alignment by giving me a better awareness of my body and a sense of the greater connection that needs to exist for me to be at my best both physically and mentally.
I recommend Maureen to anyone wanting to explore new ways to grow personally who is also willing to be open to seeing things through a different lens. She is lovely; a genuine gift to those who enjoy her guidance, honesty and calming presence."
