What people are saying:
“I was immediately struck by Valerie’s presence. She has a groundedness and wisdom that sets the tone for the group she is leading. She balances a variety of awareness activities with personal stories and anecdotes that weave the workshop together, connecting participants with themselves, each other and the wonder of creation itself.”
—Lisa Caton, Director, Center for Mindfulness and Compassion, TCNJ
“Your groundedness, honesty, and tenderness really allowed for us to receive, show up & be where we needed to be over the past few months. The safety you provided meant a lot to me. For the first time in a while as a participant in community, I felt I was able to genuinely hold and respect my honest feelings — of sadness, hopefulness and love on this healing path within and with others.”
—Traci Ishigo, MSW, ASW
