FEEDBACK FROM RECENT PRESENTATIONS
Caren is one of our core mindfulness teachers at Pause to be Present where she shares her life coaching skills in positive psychology and meditation with our community. Caren is an amazing teacher, offering her insight and expertise in each class with a warm and relatable approach. So many people have benefited from her wisdom!
Caren’s session was the highest-rated training for our consultants and it couldn’t have arrived at a better time! We are so grateful for her wisdom and calming, positive presence.
Caren did two mindfulness workshops at our office , which were insightful and interactive, and covered the science behind mindfulness and how to apply it. She guided the staff in a meditation, and the nearly 80 employees who attended walked away with practical tools and strategies to reduce stress and bring greater calm into both their work and home lives. The workshops were a huge success!
We hired Caren to create a three-part wellness series for our corporate staff. Her knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm came through as she guided us during interactive sessions that covered concepts such as self-care, positivity, relationships, mindfulness, resilience and mindset. During a challenging time, Caren provided a wide array of research-backed tools to apply to our daily lives in both work and life. We all walked away with a greater sense of calm and gratitude.
In her fabulous talk on positivity and resilience, Caren did a masterful job of weaving academic study into practical advice. She is powerful in her warmth, calm, and confidence.
Caren’s presentation gave our high school faculty a much needed boost of positivity as we ended the year. Her knowledge and passion were impactful for all in the room.
Caren’s workshop was so informative and so actionable and timely. She has such a warm and relatable presentation style and the feedback from the team was terrific!
Caren is a real gem. We featured her on a panel about positive psychology and resilience and her advice was stellar. Caren’s expertise and approach really resonated with the participants and the feedback I got from our viewers was exceptional.
Caren is an amazing facilitator and teacher. She led our team in a two-part wellness workshop that was so engaging, practical and inspiring. While leading the group, she created many opportunities for participants to connect with the ideas and practice the concepts, which included mindfulness and positive psychology. After the first workshop, my colleagues asked for more—a sign of a worthwhile and helpful training of ideas and tools we can apply to our individual lives and to our workplace. In the era of Zoom and isolation, this was a particularly meaningful way to slow down and connect with colleagues and our own selves.
