Christina Hoe

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. "



"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."

Amy Brown

Professor, University of Hawaii, John A Burns School of Medicine

"I highly recommend the meditations led by Noah Pomeroy who is devoted to helping people ease their minds and lives through mindfulness. His UCLA training is unique, but more so his kindness and ability to lead people to those special brain waves that truly relax your mind as a deep nap does so that you are not only refreshed, but encouraged and recharged to walk through the world. It takes special leaders to provide healing through your mindfulness practice, and Noah Pomeroy is one of those people. "

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."

Leah Brew

PhD (she/her/hers)
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!”

MAPs 1 Student

"Noah was an excellent instructor who is well prepared for the classes and very responsive to the comments, questions, and needs of the students. I think the program is thoughtfully developed and is an excellent way to enter into mindfulness and meditation. "
