I wanted to let you know that the weekly meditation classes you conduct, for the Fund staff, have been greatly appreciated by the participants, as reflected by the surveys.
Not only have staff learned how to do the mindful meditation and the benefits of it on the body and mind, but some have started to meditate on their own and are exploring options outside work. Here is a quote from one such survey:” This class has been very helpful in not allowing stress to control my life and to appreciate the simple things in life”.

When I first met Bill, I was struck by the profound openness in his eyes and smile. As I got to know him very deeply over time through intensive work together at Waking Down in Mutuality events I led in NYC, I became increasingly impressed by his compassion, wisdom, kindness, transparency, humor, intelligence, dedication to practice and liberation, and discernment. Bill is someone who has absolutely walked the path and derived tremendous benefit from it, and has so much to share about real-life transformation. He attunes marvelously to each person and situation, is not afraid to speak his mind, and shares with generosity and skill. I most highly recommend his services; it is a great pleasure to spend time around Bill doing anything at all, but especially to engage with him in this work that is so dear to his heart.

Establishing a schedule of daily meditation and mindfulness practices helps me clear my thoughts and think objectively when I’m under stress. In Bill’s Meditation class I learned a series of gentle, practical methods - focusing on breath, walking and yoga as anchors to achieve this.
The class has made me more reflective on the present moment and I am more patient overall. It has helped me to not overreact in difficult situations. Being in the moment adds to your life.

Meditation is a way to unplug and refocus. It has helped me to tap into feelings of peacefulness and joy. I learned that no matter what I am struggling with: it is better to not try so hard to control it and remember that the moment will pass.
