WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Director of Experiential Learning, Le Jardin Academy
"Noah Pomeroy is an extremely effective and particularly accessible mindfulness guide. His matter-of-fact, practical approach was welcome and refreshing to those of us who previously viewed mindfulness as best defined by “breathy aloofness.” Noah is quite the opposite--he is down to earth, funny, and open. Most importantly, he models a thoughtful vulnerability and a clear-minded intentionality that is absolutely invaluable to our growth as humans. "
Dean and Professor of Law, University of Hawaii at Manoa William S. Richardson School of Law
"I am grateful for Noah’s expertise as a Mindfulness Facilitator. I highly recommend his sessions, which are as informative, as they are restorative and healing. Noah has not only immersed himself in the science and literature on mindfulness and meditation but, as a gifted and expert practitioner, he has done so with a particular focus on our profession and community. As such, he has been incredibly thoughtful about increasing our capacities, decreasing stress, and building resilience, both professionally and personally."
Founder, WORK DOT DOT
"Noah is an exceptional mindfulness facilitator and thought leader. He has the ability to meet fellow meditators where they are, for personal and customized growth. Whether you are at a beginner or advanced level in your practice, Noah's approachable insights, vast compassion, and relatable experiences are highly valuable. As someone who integrates mindfulness into daily life and organizational excellence, I highly recommend Noah for both personal enrichment and professional development."

WHAT students have said...
MAPs 1 Student
"It is not easy for both students and instructors to have a zoom class for 2 hours. I felt that the classes are totally engaging and relaxing. Thank you, Noah, for the very important and wonderful classes."
Professor of Counseling
“I had the privilege of completing the MAPS 1 training with Noah to reinvigorate my mindfulness practice. I was really happy to see how the class was structured, covering different ways that mindfulness can be used to help with everyday challenges in life. Even though I had studied mindfulness in the past, I learned a lot in Noah’s course. The class was appropriate for beginners and experienced individuals who need a reboot into mindfulness. And now I am back to a daily mindfulness practice!”
