“We are forever grateful for the time you have put into our team and each and every one of us personally too. Your recorded sessions will be a big part of my journey not just for the European championship, that’s coming up, but for life! I will practice and learn. This training has already made me a better person. I’ve noticed this in small and big situations in life. I have more patience, closer to understanding and appreciation. I also see things in a bigger picture, that make me more forgiving. I can continue, but I just want to say thank you! My mindfulness journey just began, so much more to harvest.”

“As a busy CEO, you sometimes have to make time for yourself for the benefit of others. I was introduced to the principal of mindfulness by Kris. I asked him to introduce and work with me and my team on a mindfulness journey and his dignity knowledge and delivery in taking us on a discovery of our own has had a significant effect on the team. I highly recommend his service for anyone considering mindfulness training as a business development tool.”

“Kris’ story inspired me. I was new to practicing meditation and am excited about the benefits the practice of meditation offer to my personal health. I found Kris an excellent presenter and the meditation he led was wonderful. I was so inspired I asked him to do another class for my 17-year-old son and some of his friends. My son was also really impressed by the presentation. He connected to Kris’ story being a young athlete himself.”

“Kris is a dynamic, engaging speaker. We were extremely lucky to have him present and kick off our mindfulness campaign. He was able to engage with the audience and take us on his journey throughout his professional hockey career and how it led him to mindfulness training. I was instantly interested and inspired by Kris’ presentation. I will use his teachings, not only professionally, but personally as well. His thoughtful, calm teaching makes meditation and mindfulness accessible and achievable for anyone. During the presentation, Kris took us through a guided meditation session in an auditorium of 160 people and you could have heard a pin drop! Just like people who go to the gym to stay physically healthy, Kris’ training is for the the mind to stay mentally healthy. His talk of flow state and creating an athlete’s mind is not just for elite athletes but relates to all of us in our daily lives. I highly recommend Kris to anyone who is looking to learn more about mindfulness meditation.”

“We were proud to have Kris present at our 2018 Greater Edmonton Teachers’ Convention. He was great at engaging the people in the room with his stories of his hockey career. Kris’ presentation wasn’t just a theoretical, but a practical experience that I will use this in my coaching, teaching and also personal life. I would recommend if you ever get a chance to listen to him speak, take it up.”
Athletic Director and CTF Lead, Margaret-Ann Armour School
“Kris presented at the 2018 Greater Edmonton Teachers Convention, His presentation spoke to me, not only as an athlete but also as an educator.
As an athlete, I had struggled with my state of mind, always thinking about the possible negative outcomes. Kris took us through a mindfulness exercise, and it ultimately relaxed and put me in a state of mind which I could only describe as calm. I see this state of mind as beneficial as an athlete and as a coach. Why? Because if I could find that calm and relaxed state in a game, I believe I can perform to my fullest potential.
As an educator, I can also see the art of mindfulness being useful for my students who are usually in a constant state of stress. The amount of anxiety that occurs before exams is exceptionally high. So with that said, having something that could calm the students would help immensely.
Kris’ presentation changed my mind on how a simple five-minute moment can ultimately improve your mood and affect your mindset. I plan to implement mindfulness meditation into my life and hopefully others.”
