"While making my film Wrestling Ghosts, I had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of trauma and the negative impact it can have on every aspect of a person’s life. I’ve also seen the potential for healing, and I believe Mindfulness for a Messy Life offers one of the most comprehensive approaches to healing I’ve seen. It’s the kind of course that will change lives."
"Mindfulness for a Messy Life is a beautiful and brilliantly constructed program, and Elizabeth Erin Kemler offers her own experience with such openness and honesty that anyone working with the course will feel immediately supported. I highly recommend this program for anyone struggling to find equanimity in a messy world— and that probably means all of us. But those struggling with depression and anxiety will find a great support and friend in Elizabeth and her amazing work."
"I have taught mindfulness to thousands of people over the years, many of whom were struggling with mental health issues. After going through Mindfulness for a Messy Life, I must say that I cannot imagine having a more comprehensive and powerful course to recommend to my students."
""Elizabeth Kemler has poured her heart, soul and brilliance into this program. It is amazing - a real gift to the world."
""Mindfulness for a messy life encompasses decades of tried and tested methods that Elizabeth has relied on to successfully navigate through her life. It is an amazing program for anyone to refer to and practice. Medications can only help us to a certain extent. Elizabeth provides great insights on how to find sanity in our lives."
