from previous participants

This workshop was everything I needed at the time. I loved the meditation and exercises that we can use in our everyday life. I felt clear and free of tension after the workshop.

This workshop helped me to feel comfortable with my emotions and know how important is to take care of myself. I like the presenter’s tone of voice because I felt comfortable, interested in the information, and motivated.

It is a great workshop to understand self-care but also not forgetting our obligations and responsibilities.

Excellent presentation! Interesting, helpful, and so applicable. I really enjoyed all the application of techniques that were used throughout the presentation. The way the material was presented was in a manner that speaks to everyone in all cultures.

Ami is a caring and compassionate presenter who truly possesses the talent of communicating self-care awareness, techniques, and analysis in a palatable manner.

This workshop was very educational and also gave me insight on what tools to use when I am feeling overwhelmed at work whether it’s a trigger from my personal life or my work life.

The 3 hours flew by because there was so much great info to take in. Ami covered many fantastic topics and suggestions to manage stress and burnout.

I thought this was a very relevant and valuable session. I’ve listened to many speakers on similar topics and I was still able to learn things from Ami that I have never even heard exactly the way she put it. She also has a very relaxing voice which makes her an excellent speaker on this topic. I will definitely keep my Self-Care Toolbox with me.

I needed this session so desperately. It has helped me learn new methods of self-care and relaxation. The tools are absolutely applicable and useful.

Ami was very thorough and knowledgeable and I appreciated the combination of the information being presented and opportunity to interact and participate.

The flow of the presentation was wonderful and I was able to stay fully present for the entire 3 hours. The presentation was clear and simple, yet very informative. Ami was confident and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed this.

I really enjoyed participating in breathing exercises, additional short meditations, and how interactive it was. Ami is an incredible speaker! Absolutely LOVED this presentation.

I highly recommend Ami Kunimura as a facilitator for any organization that is seeking expertise around self-care. Ami was wonderful to collaborate with. I was impressed by Ami’s willingness and ability to listen and understand our organization’s unique needs and tailor the workshop to make the experience for our staff as accessible as possible. Ami masterfully designed and facilitated the workshop in a way that balanced sharing content with giving space for participants to process the information in a way that honored their personal needs and experiences.

The “Resilience at Work” workshop was the highlight of our self-care and stress management series for our staff. This workshop provides clear explanations of concepts and toolkit gave simple, concrete ways to start making positive changes in their lives. I am confident that this workshop has built a strong foundation from which our staff can build off of. – Lucas Holmes, People & Culture Director, Soccer Without Borders
