“I just finished a six session executive series at Downtown Mindfulness with Shalini Bahl. I wanted to learn meditation and stress reduction techniques and she taught me so much more about opportunities to take in the world and embrace opportunities. I highly recommend Shalini and Downtown Mindfulness classes to anyone with an interest in self improvement and greater perspective.

“How Shalini’s class most benefited me was in reminding me to consider the impact of my words and actions and passion and fire on other people. How we don’t need to stop delivering messages we want to convey – but how we can more thoughtfully consider carefully where the other person is truly coming from, what your situational bias and skewed outlook may be, what you really want and what is the best way to earn the situation that you want.” ~ Cinda Jones, President, W.D. Cowls Inc., Land Company
