“I took Erin’s MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Program in July 2016. I enjoyed every class I attended over the eight weeks and learned a lot about mindfulness practice, including how to observe my inner thoughts and emotions. I was already practicing some meditation before, but taking Erin’s MBSR program really opened my eyes to the reality of my inner experience and the root causes of my stress. Erin is a very calm and inspiring mindfulness teacher; she constantly encouraged me to approach each experience with curiosity and patience, which was really helpful for me in learning not to judge or criticize myself so much. After completing the program, I am a lot more aware of myself, and also more grounded in the present moment. Erin is truly an authentic, proficient teacher we can learn mindfulness from.” – Joanathan Lim, Illustrator and Graphic Design Consultant
“Erin is the first mindfulness practitioner I’ve ever met and she has impressed me with her passion for advocating this practice – especially during a time when it was not widespread. Her dedication to coaching individuals from all walks of life in the simplicity and symbolism of mindfulness is inspiring. Erin has a gift for bringing out the best in clients she has coached, with a gentle, firm, knowledgeable and enlightened disposition. I have faith that she will continue to exude light in her calling.” – Dawn Foo, Education and Career Guidance Counsellor
“Erin was the teacher of the 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program that I took. I found her to be very skilled in teaching the mindfulness training program, pacing each class well and facilitating our practice of self-awareness and self-discovery effectively. It is important that the teacher creates a safe, non-judgmental space for learning mindfulness, and Erin was able to offer that to her participants. She always invited us to be gentle and kind to ourselves as we engaged in the various practices. She embodies the patience, openness, and compassion that every mindfulness teacher should have. I enjoyed Erin’s MBSR program very much and it was overall a very enriching experience for me. If you’re considering mindfulness training for yourself, I encourage you to connect with Erin.” – Ameesh Randeri, Vendor Manager, Project & Program Manager
