“Martha has been facilitating Meditation for Health patient education programs for the University of California Irvine Medical Center for almost 15 years.  We began offering her programs in 2000 and have had a continued need that Martha has been able to fulfill with her knowledge and teaching skills.  She created multiple session meditation programs along with special topic meditation and relaxation programs.

Martha is a skilled practitioner of meditation and wellness.  Her programs are structured to teach basic to advanced skills to individuals as well as groups.  Her skills were brought to the attention of our anesthesiology department when they needed a new facilitator for their Preparing for Surgery-Mind, Body & Spirit program.  She has been teaching relaxation to pre-surgical patients twice each month since 2011.  Patient evaluations from the Preparing for Surgery group classes always state that the most helpful information was the meditation, breathing and relaxation exercises.

Martha, her knowledge and skills are invaluable in that she can assist and support your efforts to find inner peace.”

“Martha’s classes are so wonderful. I have been taking them for several years. I am always so relaxed and balanced afterwards. I am busy working with lots of patients in clinical trials. I will never forget the food meditation we did in a small group with an imaginary cup of warm chocolate for one hour at a picnic bench outside on the hospital grounds.”

“What an incredible voice you have. It is so soothing. We wish you would make recordings. We wish you could come to surgery with us.”

“I’m an IRS investigator. It is a hectic job. My stomach was in knots when I arrived. My doctor wanted me to try it. It was my first meditation experience. I couldn’t believe my stomach pain was gone at the end of the meditation.”

“My little 5 year old, who wouldn’t put down his tablet, fell asleep listening to your voice as you did the guided visualization relaxation for our group in preparation for surgery. It was amazing to see him so relaxed. I’m telling everyone.”

“We found out about your program from the staff at a medical appointment. They highly recommended it and strongly urged us to attend. Now that we have experienced it, we are so glad we came.”
