This work feels like a foundational piece of wellness and overall health that I feel has long been missing from the medical conversation. I love how it is based in the science of how we function- it is very practical, very direct. I’ve witnessed its effectiveness with my patients. These are places that I don’t think traditional medicine or mental health has succeeded in reaching, and I find this work extremely inspiring and hopeful in its implications for healing. Applied Mindfulness does awesome work.

Gabriel has an exceptional ability to balance discussion of complex theoretical concepts with a nuanced attunement and engagement with his audience. Of course, this is exactly the elusive quality we seek in a trainer– their capacity to speak to both the head and the heart– and exactly the elusive opportunity we seek in a training, to feel and practice the application of heady concepts. I highly recommend Applied Mindfulness trainings!

We collaborate with Applied Mindfulness again and again because they are miles ahead of the rest with participant experience, engagement, and content retention. I know and trust that our training participants leave the course not only with a wealth of vital knowledge, but also refreshed from the unique experiential learning retreat they attended that will surely stand out from other courses they have attended. I often see reinvigorated alignment and passion brought back into the eyes of participants whom walked in the room at the beginning of the day dull and burned out from the stresses of their field.

I’ve been attending social work trainings for 10 years. This was totally different than anything I’ve been to. Not only was it totally applicable to my work with clients, it was also totally applicable to my own life, my family, and my community. Thank you so much.

Best self-care training I’ve ever taken.
— Clinical Staff, Youth Services Organization
I am writing to share my own as well as the After School Program Leaders appreciation for your time and effort in training us in the art of ‘applying mindfulness’ to our everyday work and existence. The trainings have helped transform our current mindsets and behaviors when working in stressful environments and with challenging populations. We have gained a sense of empowerment through learning techniques and tools to help ourselves and those around us live healthier, happier and less stressful lives.

Your guidance has opened our eyes to the vital connection between our physical bodies, emotions, intelligence and that of our responses to life’s everyday demands and stressors. The trainings gave us applicable tools to guide us into having more balance in times of immediate stress as well as during times of reflection. On behalf on the ASP team, we are truly grateful for your time and effort and look forward to training with you again in the near future.

Amazing invaluable training.

Relaxing and not being productive made me angry at first. Then I realized how much the weight of stress is truly impacting my day-to-day performance and longevity. Peace- intangible peace- is a profound tool.

In my seven years at the agency, this is the most helpful and relevant training that I have ever experienced.

Stellar! This is one of the best workshops I’ve been to at Edgwood in many years. Perfect blend of experiential and intellectual, which is really hard to do! The skill of the presenter made everything fall together. Loved the drawings used to illustrate the concepts!
— Mental Health Clinician
I was able to reflect on the work that I have done with my clients and your training brought to light something meaningful for me. Your training helped me realize that even though I am not one of the big names in the field of psychology that I too am valid and affirmed for my intentional application of therapeutic interventions in less traditional methods to support client safety in a given moment. I appreciated that your delivery reinforced the confidence in my skills and ability to support growth in my clients no matter the setting.
