Unimpressed Review by Jack
I was a picked to participate in the 9 week program at my company, Lily. I have had extensive exposure to mindfulness training programs. This program provided no new insights or revelations to my creative genius... Albeit, an interesting spin, using the language of creative genius. (Posted on August 10, 2016)
Reconnected with Joy Review by Lisa
Two main things came for me out of this program. The sad realization that I had lost my joy in life due to the busyness of our current life at work and home. Being more aware of carving out time for me at least one time per week, but every day if possible. That putting myself first isn't a selfish thing but a necessary task and only benefits all surrounding me. Taking time to quiet my mind on a daily basis really helps me to deal with all life's challenges and keeping perspective on the big picture helps me get through the rough spots. I have felt like a deer in the headlights and paralyzed. Journaling and really thinking about "what I am here for" has made a big impact already. I highly recommend this program.

Powerful Synthesis of Personal, Relational, Collective Mindfulness Review by Carrie
As a result of my engagement with this program, I have greater awareness of attention and inattention or mindfulness and mindlessness. I now have the ability to quickly integrate and lean into discomfort after recognizing resistance. I've discovered an ability to help others navigate their feelings, lean into discomfort, and be open to what comes next. I have an awareness of a shift from reaching to holding in versus interrogating as a coping mechanism. Greater awareness of struggles with control and quickly recognizing when I feel the need/desire to control versus letting go and letting things flow. Appreciation for awareness as my first step. I've experienced significant improvements in relationships and acceptance of others for where they are/who they are. Recognizing that people are dynamic and not static. GRATEFUL!!!

Bringing More of Myself at Work with Mindfulness Review by Ray
I have applied mindfulness many many times at work – most often in remembering to try and be present with others. I am fairly introverted and have a tendency to want to zone out or leave conversations early. I am attempting to allow people in more and being in the moment versus trying to escape. One meeting in particular, I was co-facilitating and super nervous about it. My energies were all over the place that morning and I was feeling anxious and disassociated. I put my laptop down and took myself into a wellness room for ten minutes and locked the door. I closed my eyes and just visualized the meeting and visualized myself speaking clearly and knowledgeably. I visualized a positive outcome for all. IT WORKED! I emerged after 10 minutes of deep breathing calmer, centered, and more easy and clear. I was still nervous but I had reigned in those energies and focused them on something powerful and beneficial.

Connecting in All Directions with Awake at Work Review by Jennifer
The most beneficial outcomes of the Awake at Work mindfulness practice is my ability to quiet my mind – to pause when I find I am feeling disconnected, frustrated, and misunderstood. That I can take a big, cleansing breath and take a couple of seconds to ask myself why? Why am I frustrated? Why do I feel upset? What is needed now that can help me with this? The environment at work has been for me, one that does not feel safe for me to be who I am. I am an emotional person. I connect more with folks when there’s a connection about who we are, not just what we do. I’ve also found that if I take the time in meetings to listen more intently with my heart and mind, trying to give others equal representation versus what’s the smart thing to say and do, versus what feels right and called for in this situation. Trust your gut. It knows! (Posted on May 23, 2016)
Breakthroughs & Stress Reduction at Work! Review by Howard
One impact I've noticed is a large reduction of stress at work. I've been having more fun at work than I have had in a while. I find I am taking on challenges with a smile, and enjoying solving them. A turning point was about halfway through this course. I was given a task that I was not very familiar with. After 3 days of banging my head on my desk and making no progress, I was getting very nervous and upset. When I got home, I decided to go on a walk and not think about it. I forced myself to set it aside and just enjoy being present outside. When I got home, I laid in bed, in silence, trying to quiet everything. It was during this mediation that I had a breakthrough. I rushed to my computer, wrote some notes, then enjoyed the rest of my evening. The task I was stuck on was finished over the next two days without stress or anxiety. Since then, work has been going great. (Posted on May 22, 2016)
Impacted Every Area of My Life and Work...Outstanding! Review by Swati
The most noticeable impact of this program for me has been clarity. The ability to sit with my own self and not get distracted by thoughts, worries, and clutter. When I am starting to worry or act on emotion, I am better able to recognize that it is just my thoughts – I can better sit with them and not let thoughts consume me and take up my capacity. This has helped me to be a better listener at work and at home – I have also been able to be more productive. I don’t get distracted as easily and I don’t do things just to keep busy. I have become more confident in who I am as a person and more clearly own what I bring to the team and others. I feel relaxed and at peace most of the time – this practice has helped me to take small steps even when I don’t have all the answers. It has helped me move things forward one step a time.

Empowered My Leadership with Choice Review by Kim
The most significant change or awareness has been with my ability to be at choice – to break out of automatic adaptive survival strategies of saying yes when I mean no and “going with the flow” and suppressing my needs or preferences to avoid creating disapproval or conflict. This led to feelings of sadness and depression and was also showing up in my ability to make clear decisions both in my personal relationship, but also as a leader at work. As I became more connected and integrated, I can sense, feel, and tune into what I need and want, and have discovered the ability to express myself clearly and directly. As a result, I feel more clear, joyful, and alive, and I am able to show up more fully in my relationships and as a more empowered, empowering, inspirational leader. (Posted on May 17, 2016)
I didn't realize how much of life I had been missing! Review by Brian
Anakha's Mindfulness practice has profoundly impacted my personal life, my family life, my work life, and my recreational life. That's really the key -- to be more awake, aware, present in all of my life, and more connected with the lives of others. The benefits are too many and too deep to list.
Anakha has worked with multiple major corporations, bringing Mindfulness practices into the workplace across the US.
I had gone through other "leaders in the field" books and practices before finding Anakha.
Yes, of course she has studied broadly to select the material and practices that have been demonstrated to be most impactful. I see this as a tremendous gift she brings. She has put together a wonderful synthesis of available insight, and woven it into an effective experience.
I was part of her work at a major company, and have followed up with this online class.
I'm absolutely convinced that this is vitally valuable work, with material chosen, arranged, and presented very effectively. (Posted on March 31, 2016)
Developed My Leadership Edge Review by JFS
Huge shifts in my leadership presence and my ability to lead with intention, choice, and influence. I had no idea how my mindlessness was impacting those around me. I went from reacted and distracted to much more present and focused. I am no longer reading email and checking texts in my one-on-ones and the depth of my listening and attunement with others has shifted dramatically. The program is high-quality, clear, and accessible. And after 9 months, the changes I created through this program are still in effect. Lasting change through mindfulness. (Posted on March 7, 2016)
