  45. Sharon Greenlee October 1, 2020 at 9:30 am

    I Love the One Minute Practice as it alerts the mind and body of what it’s capable of achieving in such a short time.

    Suggestion (offered with love): Turn up your mike a bit. I know it isn’t easy to speak louder when guiding a meditation. I am not hearing impaired but found it difficult to hear some of your words and my volume was as high as it would go. You guide me back to what I’ve learned before and it took only One Minute! Thank YOU!

  46. Kim October 1, 2020 at 9:26 am

    Very grounding and centering. Thank you for the short and sweet practice for today.
