All good wishes,

“The power of the MahaSati training is the continuity of commitment from our Teacher, our Sangha, and from myself.  Heather provides clarity of teaching, a deep heart, and an intimate connection with her students.  Her commitment is felt and reflected in our dedication to our evolving practices.  The support and sharing from the Sangha feels like an embrace of an old friend.  So comforting, so kind, and so encouraging.  The truth of the Dharma is the guiding light of the practice, but the commitment and strength derived from this community has allowed me to trust my process and grow exponentially in wholeness.”  ~Angela, NV
