What Women are Saying

Self care

I felt overwhelmed as many areas of my life were unstable or fluctuating. I was emotionally and mentally exhausted despite feeling like I was doing self care. I was burnt out, trying my best, but crumbling. In Amy’s workshop, I learned the impact of mindset and intention as well as presence in the moment. One specific piece of wisdom I took was regarding values; that we should live in line with our identified values even in everyday choices. I now make an effort to be present in the moment which has greatly helped me change how I view self care.

Great teacher

Dr. Backos is a great teacher. She uses creative exercises that opened me up to new parts of myself. Even though I am not an “artist,” the art exercises are great for reflection and I feel my creativity has grown. Amy’s real-world, relatable examples helped me master the content. I enjoy working in the workbooks she provides – a great way to extend the learning at my own pace. I’m so pleased and I will be taking her future courses

Enriched my life

Since joining the MCW, I have felt more confident, emotionally intelligent, and tapped into my creativity. I feel more committed to waking up to a life I love. I am becoming a more disciplined and committed person. These classes have enriched my life and I am grateful for the increased creativity I have found in motherhood as well.

I highly recommend

I was curious about Dr. Amy Backos’ work and decided to sign up for her Rest & Rejuvenate Workshop during the busiest month of my career (to date). I felt rushed, and really didn’t have time – but each week, her calm and artful delivery of researched and remarkable wisdom changed me. I learned the value of self-compassion; and saw how rest boosted my joy and productivity. The tools she gave us for stacking habits and increasing simple pleasures were profound. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Everything is easier

I felt stuck. Being stressed made it hard for me to be decisive. I was miserable and not at my best. Everything changed because Amy helped me. She taught me how time-tested and proven best practices work for me. With her guidance and leadership, I stopped looking outside myself for inspiration. I tap into my creativity to get what I desire anytime I want. I am so happy, more positive, and grateful!
