Kate is an extremely gifted mediation teacher.
"She has a great deal of knowledge and experience with the practice, an incredible intuition, and a flexibility and presence that help her find exactly the right guidance to help any practitioner at any level to deepen their practice, open more to their present experience, and find their potential for love. I never thought I was a person who could meditate, but working with Kate has changed my life. She has helped me, through mindfulness, learn how to respond rather than react to stress and difficult emotions, to be much more present with the people that matter the most to me, and to experience and savor so much more joy in my life. I'm so grateful to her for opening this path to me"
I am ever grateful to Kate as my mentor, teacher, and friend
“When I took Kate Reynolds' mindful parenting class in 2010, I was hoping for some tips to help me with strategies for soothing my two young children, ages 1 and 3. What I didn’t realize was that I was in for a whole new way of being, not only as a parent, but as an individual seeking relief from the challenges of the human condition. While I had practiced mind-body strategies for coping with my own anxiety for a few years prior to the class, Kate’s MBSR-based curriculum provided a container and foundation for what has become a life-changing practice that I now pay forward in all my relationships and in my work as a clinician."
