What do participants share about training with Jamie Lynn?
“Jamie Lynn’s mindfulness course gave me the tools to be present and grounded in the moment. Through the mindfulness techniques that I learned, I have become a better listener and better able to focus on the task in front of me.”
–Dr. Michael R. Lovell, President, Marquette University
"I have taken 2 Mindfulness & Self-Compassion courses and a Mindful Parenting class with Jamie Lynn (so far) and my only wish is that I had met her sooner! Working with Jamie Lynn, I have learned to be more present and connected in my daily life and interactions with my family and I have gained tools to help me feel more emotionally grounded and balanced. Jamie Lynn’s warmth, openness, empathy and personal experiences make her an effective mindfulness coach."

Jamie Lynn’s class was very helpful to me because I learned a lot about mindfulness. For example, I learned how to talk about my emotions in a nice way. I learned things I could do instead of screaming at people. My favorite thing I learned was 8 shakes. It taught me how to shake away my anger.
