“Students are excited and they really enjoyed your first Hearfulness class. Comments were all positive! One girl said that when she went to her next class, another girl asked her why she was so happy, and she said because she meditated and it changes your brain. They really liked the TED talk - statistics are good!! Now they have a better understanding of WHY…. Looking forward to the next class.”
