Participant Stories

"Where I have been in life is super stressful, and I recognized a need to calm that all down; so this seven weeks turned out to be a natural process for me to pursue more peace by learning and practicing mindfulness for my 30-day project."            - John

"I developed really important practices that we know from science that if you do practice them on a regular basis and do apply them to your life, it will make you happier.


So, it has been maybe five or six weeks and I actually do feel happier now; it has been a few weeks in a row now, and I think that is in part a result of some of these practices that I set myself to doing at the beginning of this project. Some of them became very important to me and routine and that’s really what I was looking for - routine practices that would change my behaviors and in the end result in a little bit more happiness."          - Steve

"Going through this workshop and designing a project, which mine turned out to be a writing project, I decided to tackle some things, honestly, and I found it to be extremely therapeutic. And I don’t think I would have chosen the project I did if I hadn’t taken the strengths inventory. I don’t tend to put a lot of stock in these kinds of assessments, but it prompted me to go in some places I hadn’t, so it was a good thing for me too."    - Nadine
