Nice things clients say...
Lisa Woodley, Manager
Government of Canada
I’ve participated in two mindfulness sessions with Scheherzade – one dedicated to managers and the other to a team. She tailored both to the needs of the participants, taking time in advance to understand our circumstances. She brings a down to earth, practical and very compassionate perspective to the sessions. Having a facilitator who is a former public servant is a huge asset because she can relate to our environment and context, making the experience both relevant and meaningful.
Mindfulness training with Scheherzade is a transformative step toward a happier, healthier, more productive work environment.

"Scheherzade’s compassion and humour inspired me to develop my own meditation practice. She’s willing to go into the dark scary places with you and guide you through them. I love being a part of her mindfulness community."
Jean-Nicolas Beuze, Representative of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Canada
"A much needed time to reflect on myself and the others that will help me navigate better my reaction to well-known triggers."
Renée Sauvé-Lemieux, Senior Secretary United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Canada
"Scheherzade provided our staff retreat with an insightful and practical session which combined theory and practises that both energized and centred our group. I would recommend her for any workplace, social or personal event. Great work. Thank-you for sharing your knowledge with us!"
Carly Dybka, Associate Director, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
Scheherzade is a masterful instructor who delivered compelling and transformative training to our management team. Her well-rounded program explained the biology driving our emotional responses, offered practical exercises, and taught valuable management techniques. Our management team loved her delivery methods and have yielded immediate gains from her instruction, with some stating that this program should be mandatory for all managers in the Department. (I strongly agree!)
Learning to approach my work with mindfulness, focus and compassion has made me more efficient, effective, and—perhaps most importantly—calm in the face of increasing pressure and demand.
This is not only one of the best things that you can do for yourself as a leader; it also reaps benefits for your employees.
