“In psychotherapy, research has shown that it is not so much the technique that is the curative factor but it is the relationship to the therapist. “I believe it is true in all things, including mindfulness meditation.
“Daniel puts so much heart into his teaching that it is impossible not to be moved by what he is saying and how he is saying it.”

“Daniel brings peace, wisdom, and a sense of playfulness into our group. It feels good just having him in the room.
"You are working on a project that is of vital importance in our society. Too many "leaders" in our culture measure success only in terms of financial gain--that is too short a view for sustaining long-term success. Your work adds to the whole value to society of the work that is done. Good on you and Daniel."
"The experience with Daniel and Manijeh was like going on a field trip with the class. Thank you for bringing them to WeSpark."

"I have already felt the effects of the mediation in that I have calmed down quite a bit since I started taking the class and I'm not taking life so seriously as I did before. Excellent class and excellent teacher!"
“Mr. Davis provides a wonderful pathway to reenter the world of meditation. His process is simple and soothing, and his stories have a grounding effect.”
“Your instruction is bringing an increasing awareness of the benefits gained from self-acceptance instead of self-flagellation.
“It's tiresome to be in the "fight or flight" mode. I have been more aware of keeping an open heart, towards myself and others. The different aspects of meditation practice brought out in class are blending together in one cosmic soup (I couldn't resist that).
“Your work is important, Daniel, to bless a world in need of healing.”
“Daniel Davis is a great teacher. After just two classes, my life is already better.”

“Before this class, I had done a little meditation here and there, and been convinced that it could be quite wonderful. However, I never did anything to learn meditation in a systematic way.
“After 6 weeks, I've begun a practice. Thanks to Daniel's kind and thorough teaching, I have a beginning mind, and a path to follow in meditation. I am profoundly grateful.”
“I found the class to be very enlightening. It made me think about things I otherwise didn't consider. It also provided me with a lot of practical tools to use in my everyday life. I look forward to continuing on with my mindful meditation.”
“I am enjoying the practice, the quieting of the mind, the falling like a pebble into stillness, and so I keep trying, and like the idea that I just have to sit, don't have to try.
“And I love the idea of mindfulness all the time, a practice or discipline of awareness. It is good to be a beginner.”
“Just wanted to thank you for the past six weeks and for sharing so openly and honestly with us about your own experiences.
“After taking your class, I feel that I have the foundation and motivation to move on with my practice, hopefully for the rest of my life.”
