“Aly is a wonderful heart centered teacher, great at listening and guiding your personal experience within a group setting. She held space that allowed myself and each attendee to get a personal tangible understanding of the material and overall I found her workshop incredibly valuable! I would recommend this class to anyone, especially those experiencing difficulties or suffering or who are in the professional care field supporting others who have those experiences.”

“I enjoyed the opportunity to practice with a small group and to share our experiences as we learned the Tonglen practice.”
“I’m more calm. Not as quick to react, I have more awareness of others’ suffering vs. being judgmental and dismissive. My life and my family’s life is forever changed for the better.
Aly fully immersed her own self and life with these teachings and this can be felt with the authenticity and loving presentation of the material. Thank you for being real!
After the 3rd or 4th week I knew that I wanted to incorporate this with the rest of my life and work.”
“I just completed this 8-week course on cultivating compassion and it has helped me in so many tangible ways: I have a daily meditation practice (for 3 mos), a longer fuse, an ability to breathe deeply through tough moments or situations, am more direct, act more courageously and feel more connected to those in my life as well as all others with whom I share this planet.
I cannot say enough about what a great experience this was for me, how lovely it was to share this class with other students, and what an engaging and knowledgeable teacher Aly is. If you want to up your personal vibe and learn some amazing things (there are great physiological benefits from this course!), sign up.”

“Aly took the time needed to respond to students and answer questions. She used reflective listening and paraphrased what people said to acknowledge what was said and to be certain she heart it correctly. She is calm and gentle. there was no pressure applied, no criticism.”
“The wisdom, knowledge, kindness, and compassion with which Dr. Waibel facilitated every class was palpable—and encouraged me to incorporate this firsthand learning into my day-to-day life experiences. In our complex world, awareness and practice of CCT is a gift of collective fortune.”
“Two hours went by very quickly because Aly kept us fully engaged in practice and discussion. How nourishing it is to find yourself present for 2 hours. The deep sharing and group practices created a sweet connection in the group.“
“Aly has a gentle way about her and an acute sense of how to summarize and reflect – she’s a great listener.”
“Super listener. Not reactive at all.”
“Aly was solid and flexible, was incredibly respectful fielding all questions, allowing and encouraging discussion.”
“Aly created a well-structured and supportive environment for effective learning.”
