Calm Clarity makes positive impact as a college credit course

Calm Clarity Class at Cabrini College, Fall 2014

I just finished running Calm Clarity as a credit course at Cabrini College. It was offered as a two-weekend retreat on Nov 8-9 and 15-16.

I’m pleased to share that over a period of just 9 days, the students have already felt a profound change and unanimously recommend the course to their classmates (according the the feedback surveys they completed). They also want to start a Calm Clarity club to continue to practice the meditations and techniques together!
See below testimonials from 3 first-generation college students.  A freshman and senior shared that Calm Clarity has helped them decide to stay in college!!!
“Since my mother had passed away right before I started college, I felt like giving up on life. But I knew that she wouldn’t want me to do that. My peers told me about this [Calm Clarity] course, and said this class could help me control my stress. Honestly, this class not only encouraged me to stay in school (college) but to [also] focus on thinking positive and being a positive impact on others”
~J (Freshman)
“I was asked to join Calm Clarity because I needed a stress reliever and more credits for graduation. As a senior, I considered withdrawing from college because I was too stressed out. Since being engaged in Calm Clarity, I feel excited, more prepared and less stressed when it comes to graduating.”
~C (Senior)
“I just wanted to thank you so much  for having Calm Clarity at Cabrini. I truly have gotten so much out of it and I hope you come back again to teach at Cabrini. Your whole story  is so inspiring and deserves to be told to all college and high school students. If I would have had this my senior year of high school I believe it would have changed my whole perspective going into college. If there is anything I can do to be apart and help you with Calm Clarity count me in, I would love to continue to be apart of this program. Its something I really have enjoyed and want to continue to to be a part of and spread to others. I would love to even go back to my high school and introduce this class there, I believe it would be so beneficial there…I’m just throwing an idea out there because I know that if I had this opportunity to take this class in high school I definitely would have…”
