    feedback from a mindful monday participant

    Andrea Deierlein leads the Mindful Monday class at the Crestwood library. Mindfulness and meditation

    evoke thoughts of calm, relaxation and even joy, and Andrea's class embodies all of these.


    Her manner is welcoming, kind, and encouraging. She creates a beautiful circle of quietude and peace.

    We are grateful to Andrea for helping us to find a refuge from our stressful lives. - Anita F., Crestwood, N.Y.



    Michael A., Yonkers, N.Y.

    "Being in a Reiki session has given me a chance to take time to get my mind off of work and people that make me anxious. Nowadays people do not take the time for themselves in order to let go of stress. I have been stressed so much because of school assignments. When I am in a Reiki session, I let go and think about how nature takes me to a peaceful place. Andrea's soothing voice along with her music playlist take you deep into a calm, peaceful and quiet space. I look forward to attending more Reiki and Mindfulness sessions at the Yonkers Crestwood Branch Library."
