Your e-programme has liberated my mind and soul.
carmen gurillat, business owner
“Since I followed your e-course I realise how I love working in my own business. And that shift (loving what I do) only happened through your mindfulness e-course. It has liberated my mind and soul because I try not to be judgemental and not to blame others. I am sure I’ll be very successful with my new way of thinking. Thank you so much!”
Your no-nonsense approach is perfect for all who shy away from airy-fairy stuff.
Astrid dEJONG, editor
“Dear Marisa, I am a true fan of yours and I think it’s about time to share this with you because I’d like to thank you for your great work
I have followed Karma Kickstart and I have read your books and blog posts, and I want to compliment you for all this work. It’s brilliant and it really works! I practise your lessons from Karma Kickstart on a daily basis. It’s such a down-to-earth e-course! After that, I’ve read your book, and I still go through it regularly to remind myself of mindfulness. It’s so valuable to keep on practising.
So… thank you for your wonderful work. It’s perfect for all those perfectionists who shy away from airy-fairy stuff, but do want to create more inner peace and contentment within their lives.”
Marisa's style is refreshingly alive and accessible.
Stephen Archer, Wellness Solutions New Zealand
"With a growing interest among New Zealanders in the benefits of mindfulness training, Marisa’s work is a timely resource. Her style is refreshingly alive and accessible as she shares her own experience and understanding. I recommend her approach for anyone seeking to develop mindfulness as a tool for well-being."
Marisa is down-to-earth, but still includes the spiritual side of mindfulness.
Ingo Lambert, senior clinical psychologist auckland
“Marisa has a good way of bringing across ideas and thoughts with metaphors that are rich in possibilities. Although her style is down-to-earth, she is not afraid to explore the spiritual side of mindfulness."
I now know how to focus and listen without judgement.
JOYCE Bennetts, managing director
“Dear Marisa, I want to say how much I am enjoying your e-course. I have both wins and challenges. My big win is committing to the cause and buying a gorgeous diary to jot down some successes in!
I enjoy focusing on one task and not judging and find that whilst I'm not successful at every attempt, I can take a step back after any interaction and look where I could have improved.
When someone is behaving or speaking in a way that I don’t agree with, I now practise awareness and this allows me to listen without judgement.
I’ll keep on practising with your wise lessons of Karma Kickstart!”
Meditating is too hard for me, that's why Marisa's approach is perfect. I feel so much better now.
“I suffer from chronic pain due to a severe disorder. I'm also blind and depending on a wheelchair. Because of the constant pain I started to isolate myself and refused to meet new people, feeling more and more lonely.
Only then I heard about Marisa’s approach which doesn’t demand that I meditate. It’s exactly what I was after because meditating is too hard for me. I followed Karma Kickstart and I think it’s a very clever mindfulness course. The exercises give me the inner peace I need to be able to do my daily chores with awareness. It means that I have less time to focus on the chronic pain I feel.
Now I can finally cope with it. I’d become very negative about others, but I feel a lot calmer now and like to open myself to other people. I also notice that I am more in control of my feelings: I now refuse to be sucked into negative thoughts.
Thanks to Marisa's digital programme I practise every day and am happy to say that I feel so much better!”
Marisa cares for her clients more than for money.
“Hi Marisa, how wonderful that you’ve cared to write such a valuable response to my email! Everything seems to revolve around money only, but that’s definitely not the case with you. Thanks!”
