The six Mindfulness sessions I had with Phillip McKnight changed the way I respond to the day to day anxieties of being a teacher and a parent during this pandemic. I am forever grateful!
Wow, the session just created a clearing, thank you. I started back into nature and my spirits are lifted. I parked in the back lot which helped to shift my feelings of being trapped in this concrete box.
