“Learning about meditation from Tay & Val was a wonderful experience. They shifted my perception of meditation significantly: what I once thought was an activity doomed to failure due to my busy mind, became a way to acknowledge and appreciate that mental business but move it along and make space, even if just for a minute or two.
I walked away from the session feeling empowered and even excited to continue my journey into daily meditation. I also felt much more prepared to show myself compassion on those days where my mind requires more gentle effort to calm.
Thank you for sharing your gift, Tay & Val!”
“With grace and humor, Tay and Val led us on a journey of play and connection.
The M + Art event was not what I expected - art on a wall and sitting in silence. Instead, it was becoming more fully present to the amazingly unique and interactive art installation by. We feasted our senses on eclectic beats and melodies, lights and colors.
The group reflection was also meaningful, as we shared our experience of letting go of "hurries and worries," and feeling more alive, like children, in the moment. Tay and Val show us that meditation is for everyone!”

“This was a great adventure! Thank you for creating such a fun meditation experience that I will be able to build on and draw from for the rest of my life! I hope I can join you at the next one and bring friends.”
“What distinguishes Tay and Val from other mindfulness teachers is their unique ability to distill ancient, often esoteric and nuanced concepts and make them both accessible and immediately applicable within a modern setting.
Doing so in venues where we often find ourselves on auto-pilot? Pure genius. Cultivating a community of practitioners in which others can share and perpetuate that mindfulness? Invaluable. Profoundly so, even.
I feel inspired by and derive hope from Tay and Val's brilliant re-framing of mediation as the "art of non-resistance" and the potential that mindset holds for not just for the soul of the individual, but for that of the community.
In these two women exist the wisdom of the ages. Coupled with their energy and warmth, theirs is both an example as well as a path every mindfulness journey can surely benefit from.”
“Loved my Monday with y'all. And guess what? My 3 presentations this week were JAM PACKED with my intention of Grace. Thanks ladies. Can't wait for the next one.”
“From the beautiful venues and intentional details, to the event experience itself, to Tay and Val’s obvious passion and expertise to make meditation accessible to me in a simple and meaningful way. These two are the REAL DEAL and I can’t recommend M Meditation enough. Looking forward to another event with you!”
“Wonderfully passionate women in Tay and Val showing us how a practice of mindfulness and meditation can make wine tasting and and all aspects of life richer. Kudos.”
“Tay and Val are master instructors able to make a mindful practice out of any event. The results for me? Being more present in my experiences, and being less judgemental about what I think must occur. This allows the moment to unfold enabling me to have deeper appreciation. All that from a meditation wine combo!”
