”Although I’ve always been interested in learning more about meditation, I wasn’t so sure as to how to go about it, but was fortunate to meet Ashleigh... Ashleigh had such amazing way of walking me through the process. It really centered me and made me realize the inner force that we all have, we just need to connect to it. It is so subtle, yet so powerful and calming at the same time as you feel the flow of your breath running in and out of you.”

-Helen Ly, Consultant

”I am in no means an expert at mindful meditation however Ashleigh expertly geared the meditation towards my experience level.
Being able to focus on my busy mind enabled me to relax and start to recognize what was going on with my body. That kind of mindfulness allowed me to return to work with a renewed sense of love and positive energy.”

-Karamvir Bhatti, Assistant Program Director for SONYC After School

”Ashleigh’s magnificent light makes practicing meditation a truly powerful experience for me. I’ve had resistance in the past, but I’m feeling more confident and clear in my mindfulness practice with every session. Life will keep life-ing, but what a joy it is to retreat to a safe and calm, quiet space in the mind and body, connecting every time like it’s the first... To finish, feeling a renewed sense of energy and love shining outward, truly building from within. Now THAT is spectacular.”

-Desiree Jordan, Singer and Grants Consultant

”Ashleigh has been a godsend for my meditation practice! I have always wanted to incorporate meditation into my everyday life and started by going to community meditation classes and pod casting meditations from youtube. But something was always missing - a personal, understanding, guiding touch! Ashleigh has given that to me through our phone meditations! She has guided me to better feel and understand my body and connect with it! I am looking forward to more intimate sessions and spiritual growth with her leading my practice!”
