  • Medical Benefit Comments: “Every week after meditation, the pain in my hip and leg goes away entirely. It lasts for several hours afterwards, but then starts creeping back again.” When it was suggested that he do a meditation when the pain starts creeping back, he tried this and responded, “I notice that when I do the meditation when the pain starts coming back, it is like taking a muscle relaxant or a pain pill. I do the meditation techniques instead of popping the pill as much as possible. The longer I meditate, the longer the pain relief lasts.Plus, I feel better mentally too.”

  • “I hadn’t slept more than two hours in a row since Vietnam. What is this now...35 or 40 years of no sleep? Since the very first week I started using your meditation CD, I sleep through the entire night, at least 6 hours. I feel like an entirely different person. The other thing that happened is that I got to go off my blood pressure medication. My blood pressure went down from 180 over 110 to 120 over 90. I’m telling every guy I know about meditation. I think I eat better too – like I feel so good that I don’t want to eat junk food anymore.”

    Todd Wolfenberg, CEO of Yoga International
  • "Molly is a wonderful teacher trainer. She helped everyone in our group feel included, welcomed and truly accepted." 

    Angie Cox, Yoga Teacher
  • "Molly teaches through deep connection. My iRest training with her was a profound experience due to the presence she brings to the retreat."

    Brian Hohman
  • “During the first few classes, I would always hold onto my cane. During the meditation today, something inside me said, ‘Put down the cane, it’s a crutch.’ I put the cane on the ground. When I closed my eyes again, I felt relaxed. Then as the meditation went on, I didn’ t feel my leg. I didn’t feel anything. I felt like I was out of my own body flying. And then something in my head said, let the thoughts go of the people on fire. And I did. I watched the memory go away. I could still see it, but it wasn’t inside me anymore. And now I’m awake and I still don’t feel my leg hurting.”
