“Two and a half years ago, I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer, terminal. Two years ago I began receiving Reiki treatment from Marci at Creating Calm while also receiving medical care. My tumor-filled lungs now show only one small tumor!

The Reiki treatment offers me a calm orientation to my entire life and I believe reaches the cancer at the cellular level. We work on the cancer, the ulcerative colitis and the immune system. Medicine, Reiki, meditation, and diet all work together.”

"My 6 year old loves listening to Marci’s CD at bedtime. Coupled with a session or two with Marci, so that he is familiar with her, her voice and “how to meditate,” this CD has done wonders for his ability to settle at bedtime and have something to anchor him and his routine. There are many nights now when I can tuck him in and leave him in his room “with Marci” and he happily says, “OK, good night!” and stays in his room and bed until he falls asleep. Thanks Marci for bringing the wonders of your class into our home!"

I have a 10 year old son with autism and he started attending Marci's class about a year ago. At the beginning, I didn't think he would be able to sit still long enough to pay attention and follow the meditation steps. Her kindness and patience really connected with him and now he can't wait to get there each week. Given his limited language skills, she provided a picture schedule with visuals so that he can understand the poses and routine. We now see him carry over some of the techniques in school which really helps when the day gets challenging. His teachers have even built some yoga time into his day which helps him to slow down and stay focused. I would definitely have a child with or without special needs give Marci's class a try.

My teenager has been meditating with Marci for a year now and has developed calming and coping mechanisms that will serve her well throughout her life. Marci's meditations adeptly address the stresses of teenage life (of which there are many!) in a positive, soothing manner. Marci also provides a wonderful role model, with her even, kind temperament, her genuine interest in the well being of her students, and her enthusiasm for the beneficial effects of meditation. I highly recommend Creating Calm for teens!

I have been participating in Marci’s adult meditation group for two years. She brings a warmth and enthusiasm to each of her classes. She creates a relaxing environment and writes insightful guided meditations each week which brings me to a place of peace and self discovery. I recommend Marci’s meditation classes to anyone looking to combat life’s daily stresses.
