Mindy F, Author

“Cindy’s program was my first toe into mindfulness programs, despite having done yoga and minimal meditation for decades…Now, mindfulness is a daily/near constant experience for me, and it’s all thanks to the grounding Cindy shared with us. She is a wise and skilled leader, mentor, guide, and great soul. I highly recommend carving out the time for her program. Whatever your motivation–pain, stress, health/weight issues, anxiety, etc. — you will be most grateful that you did!!”

Sara C, Teacher

“I took an 8-week MBSR program with Sunrise Mindfulness and found Cindy to be a simply outstanding instructor who had the flexibility to deal with my physical limitations for parts of the program. This was my first in-depth experience with the practice of mindfulness, and I have found it to be an extremely useful way to manage the stress in my daily life. There are multiple techniques demonstrated and as a student, I had flexibility to choose what worked best for me. There was homework each week, and a commitment to practice 45-60 minutes a day. It was important that I honor that commitment to myself. After 8 weeks, this has become a positive habit in my life. I highly recommend Cindy’s program and teaching style to anyone who would like to begin a meditation practice.”

Louise M, Teacher

“Wonderful program. Highly recommend Cindy’s class!”

Ilkka S, Architect (retired)
