Conferences & Retreats

Lakeland School District - Cheryl lead a half-day mindfulness training for the Superintendents and Administrators of Lakeland School District. This is in conjunction with her work training their teachers and staff.  This interactive workshop gives educators an introduction to mindfulness, the science behind mindfulness and how mindfulness is being used in schools and in classrooms across the world to help students and teachers strengthen intra- and inter-personal skills, foster better coping mechanisms and give students life-long tools to promote their health and wellness.  Cheryl also helps develop initiatives and mindfulness programs for district-wide implementation.


Every now and then you come across a class or a person who helps you to be a better person.  Cheryl offers just that.  I am a better person because of all the things that I have learned - I am a better spouse, a better mother, a better friend, a better co-worker, and actually even more compassionate with myself.  And what’s the best part?  That I got all this by simply learning how to slow down and calm down.  I will be forever grateful! Taking the beginning meditation class is the single most important thing I have done for myself in the last decade.  I can honestly say that my family and I are all happier because of my taking this one step to learn how to be calmer and more mindful.

Cheryl presented multiple workshops at our company and was incredibly professional, engaging and warm.  She is truly a leader in teaching mindfulness and made everything clear and accessible. Within the first week, I was implementing her mindfulness strategies into my life at work and at home.  Cheryl uses her real life experience as a mother and working professional to really relate to the everyday struggles of balancing work and home life.  I already feel less stress, less distracted and can find a bit of happiness in ordinary things everyday. Thank you!

“Cheryl came to talk to our district about mindfulness and the event was an incredible success. Her presentation was engaging, informative and extremely relatable.  And, it included something for everyone — parents, students, and even teachers. Cheryl introduced the benefits of mindfulness, provided supportive research, and shared easy, implementable ways to incorporate mindfulness into our lives and our classrooms.  If you’re looking to bring information about mindfulness to your school or community, Cheryl is a terrific choice.

The 2bpresent’s mindfulness workshop for teens was very effective in helping my teenage son learn techniques he could use when feeling anxious. These tangible tools have enabled him to keep his mind and body calm in stressful situations, allowing him to get through them successfully where he would previously get stuck. My son was skeptical going into the class, but Cheryl relates well to teenagers - he enjoyed the class, and came back for more.  

— Lisa F., Mother of Teens Participating in Teen Mindfulness Programs

It made me realize that I wasn’t the only one that was stressed and anxious.  I felt safe and comfortable sharing and learning in a friendly environment.
