“Working with Polina was the most important decision in my life in terms of reclaiming my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Her empathetic, passionate nature, depth of knowledge and positive energy are a rare combination and a gift to all who encounter or work with her.”  Maria K, Boulder

“I attended Polina’s 6 week Uplifting Compassion program in the fall of 2018. I have been working in healthcare for over 10 years and found all of the material she presented to be very helpful in handling a wide variety of patient care scenarios. She is very kind and intelligent with a good understanding of the challenges that are unique to working in healthcare. She is an excellent teacher with a wealth of information, helpful meditation tools, and thought provoking questions that helped me see my patient care interactions from multiple different perspectives and expanded my conscious awareness.

Since completing her workshop, I have found myself having a more compassionate and authentic relationship with the patients I see while feeling more energized about my work in medicine. I highly recommend her workshop to anyone in healthcare feeling drained, overextended, or disheartened.” – Kristen S., Physician Assistant, Denver, Colorado
