The staff that attended really appreciated the content on decreasing individual and team stress, improving well-being of individuals and improving patient care by exploring the impact of stress on all. At your suggestion, we have ordered a bulletin board that will be devoted entirely to giving the staff positive feedback.

Re: Laurel’s teaching/consulting skills:

From students at the Minnesota Center for Shiatsu Studies:

  • Dr. Reinhardt’s wisdom and knowledge comes from a very calm, centered, empowered place; she is very open, welcoming, and loving.
  • Dr. Reinhardt was able to validate everyone’s experience while also respectfully offering new perspectives.
  • This workshop made me aware of my fears and what they do to me — how they disempower me and those around me; her groundedness was an example of what releasing fear can do.
  • The workshop was intense, and I enjoyed the overwhelming joy I experienced as I released fear.
  • Dr. Reinhardt embodies and models what she talks about.

From an anonymous professor at the University of Minnesota’s School of Medicine:

“I hadn’t realized the extent to which medical education is based on fear. After hearing Dr. Reinhardt speak, I began teaching my students differently, and encouraged my colleagues to do the same. My students tell me it’s like night and day.”

From Betty Pease, recipient of a draping lap labyrinth from her son and daughter-in-law:

“Thank you for your gift. I didn’t know what it was. I put it on my lap and started working with it, and was so relaxed — I was amazed!”

From Steve Burt, who received a draping lap labyrinth after a motorcycle accident:

“Just to say, what a great comfort your quilt has been during my convalescence! During my time in the nursing home, especially, it was a ray of sunshine, showing the path back to my life.”

From Christine M., an experienced meditator:

“Sitting on the cloth labyrinth took my meditation practice to a whole new depth.”

From Cindy B.:

“Laurel’s guidance and cloth lap labyrinths allowed me to experience an inner connection I’ve never gotten with walking labyrinths.”

From Suzannah Tebbe-Davis, somatic therapist:

“My clients have expressed their awe and delight with the healing energy that emanates from Laurel’s healing quilt. Her compassion, talent and love, coupled with the power of the chakra symbols and labyrinths, radiate from this amazing quilt.”

From Kim Duckett, founder of a Mystery School for Women in Asheville and teacher of The Wheel of the Year as a Spiritual Psychology:

“I will be mentioning your book as one of the few that I’ve found that so clearly sees/works with the Wheel [of the year] as a psychology. I am always happy to suggest it to those I teach around the country.”

Thank you, Kim!
