"The Mindfulness workshop presented by Michael Chiappone was not only informative but it went into the practical application of meditation and nutrition. These I felt were key features to incorporating well-being practices into our busy daily lives. The class helped me create the idea of having checkpoints throughout the day in the future to be more aware of correcting self-defeating emotions/behaviors that may arise. The class was also very effective in creating awareness of being more mindful of our nutritional intake and provided an update on what foods are most beneficial. I would definitely enroll in this class again if Michael was presenting again for the following year." Charles T. LSCW
"Michael Chiappone delivers well researched information in a fun, interactive and thoughtful way that inspires wonderful sharing by class participants. He mixes in theory, concrete information and interventions with experiential exercises that really helps students integrate the information. I started using his exercises in right after taking his class! I highly recommend his trainings, they are the best I have attended." Megan C, LMSW
