When I decided to start meditating, I knew I would need someone to teach me, encourage me and give me the skills I needed to eventually progress by myself. Marissa was the perfect choice for a coach. Our weekly lessons were well prepared and included both the theory and practice of meditation while giving me the time I needed to ask questions and seek clarification. I simply could not have done this without Marissa. Excellent choice!+ Read More
I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness independently since 2015. Marrisa helped me learn even more in-depth. Through her teaching, I learned how to cope with anxiety and stress, and I really enjoyed discovering new ways of living with compassion and peaceful mind. Very thankful for her. I highly recommend her!+ Read More
