Have attended several different mediation sessions with Ben. He provides a calm, steady presence, making the mediator feels at ease. Uses a variety of mediation methods and approaches which is enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Ben is an outstanding guide for meditation and mindfulness practice. I appreciate the way he guides through a session and changes the methodology each time so it doesn't feel stale. Sometimes its a mental image to focus on, other times its feeling grounded in your own physical self. I would strongly recommend Ben for mindfulness practice.

What an awesome experience participating in one of Ben's sessions from a virtual setting! I still felt just as connected as an in person setting - and listening in through headphones made it seem like he was in the same room as me. The nature of my work is to attend meetings from a virtual setting but for the time in Ben's session I was able to completely step away and into my own mind. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Ben as a mindfulness/meditation instructor. With a soothing voice and carefully selected language, Ben leads his participants through exercises designed to become in tune with one's body, release tension, and clear the mind. I find each one of his sessions allows me to temporarily disconnect from the external environment, focus on my immediate sensations, and then reconnect to the world feeling rejuvenated. If you're seeking increased mental clarity, infusion of positive energy, or just an escape, I would suggest attending one of Ben's sessions.

I had some meditation coaching sessions with Ben Gerig of Chalk Cliffs Wellness a while back. I already had some meditation experience using audio recordings that I began as part of my concussion recovery, but I suspected there was a deeper and more holistic experience available through a true self-guided meditation practice. Ben helped me overcome some barriers and achieve my own practice by making things very accessible often through sports metaphors. He helped me understand the innately human mechanisms at work during meditation, and helping me feel comfortable and confident in the experiences I was having as I built my practice. Ben created a safe space for me to explore, and provided flexibility to meet my needs.

Ben took me on as a client when he was first starting his business—and I was impressed. I had been interested in meditation, but was unsure if I would be able to get into it. Ben helped me ease into the practice of meditation over the course of several sessions (with plenty of practice at home). He made me feel comfortable, and I quickly took to his style and approach. Thanks, Ben!
