It has been extremely rewarding to work with Amanda as my guide and teacher to practice mindfulness. She is filled with warmth, encouragement and amazing strength, and challenges me to dive deep into myself to heal my heart. Amanda has taught me a whole new way to approach my relationship with myself, and those in my life, helping me to find balance, grounding, and love within me every day and especially during periods of anxiety or sadness. She helps me empower myself to live a better life through stillness and being centered. I’m learning how to follow my joy! With much gratitude.
As a friend, teacher, and colleague, Amanda continuously generates wisdom and abundance in my life. Amanda’s commitment to her own practice and service to the growth and healing of others comes through in every interaction, whether one-on-one or teaching a room of executives. I could not have more trust in and gratitude for what she offers in each and every moment. Thank you for your integrity and humility, and all of the light you bring to this world Amanda.
Amanda is an incredible teacher and coach. I have taken her MBSR and parenting classes as well as workshops. She is compassionate and a great listener. She is also very competent on guiding people to find answers from within to whatever they might be experiencing. By being her student and friend, I am able to witness her personal growth, her dedication to mindfulness, and commitment to help others grow, better themselves and live a life full of purpose and joy.
P.S. I love her to the moon and back.
Amanda is an exceptional facilitator. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the practice of MBSR, she sets a tone in each class of welcome -ness, safety and inclusiveness. She shares her own personal experiences and helps others to openly share theirs, including doubts, fears, difficulties and challenges that we all face.
Taking any class offered by Amanda is an offering to oneself of the potential for a life changing experience and a gift of self-care and validation.
I cannot say enough positive things about Amanda or my experience of taking her class on MBSR.
Being in Amanda’s presence is truly a gift. She is a natural born teacher and embodies love, warmth, and wisdom. Amanda has an amazing ability to facilitate deep meaningful transformations within. She creates a supportive environment in all that she does. I have had the honor of being a recipient of many of Amanda’s teachings- being her MBSR student, attending her parenting classes, seeing her present on mindfulness, and lead retreats. She is able to connect to those in her presence and help them ignite their connection to their soul qualities. Her dedication to a meditation practice and inner work is a true testament to her passion. Amanda’s light shines bright!
I met Amanda a few years back and was immediately drawn to her warmth, her soft, open heart and her positive energy.
Amanda, has a special gift of discernment. She strives to live each day living her true potential here on Earth and recognizes she is here to guide others to step into their own unique power. I feel blessed to have Amanda as a close friend, mentor and coach. Her friendship over the years has nurtured my heart and nourished my soul. Her advice always takes me back to myself, and allows me to access my own inner wisdom. It is from that place I am able to dive deeper and find my answers, during challenging moments.
Amanda is an amazing teacher and mentor! I have participated in several of her courses and I experienced her strong passion through her teachings. Following her guidelines and recommendations, I was able to change the dynamics in my home and create a strong connection with my three children. Amanda assisted me in effectively communicating with them in a way which I listened more before reacting. Because of her teachings I am able to hold space and create the family life I always envisioned. I am so thankful for all of the wisdom she has shared with me.
Amanda has the gift of deep compassion and listening that creates a warm and inviting community in which to practice mindfulness. Her balance of head and heart is a true gift to her students. It’s always a treat when Amanda is teaching at Copper Beech Institute!
Amanda Votto is an outstanding mindfulness teacher. Her skill is a result not only of the depth of her teaching experience but, even more importantly, of her authenticity. Her teachings come from the heart. She lives what she teaches.
