Due developed Calm Clarity by synthesizing valuable life lessons with insights fromcontemplative wisdom, neuroscience, and behavioral economics. To learn more, please visit: calmclarity.org Testimonials: “Devereux recently invited Due Quach to be the guest speaker at our most recent executive leadership council meeting. My senior executives and I found her mindful leadership training very inspirational. Her powerful personal story touched all of us, and her faithfulness to the science (and skipping the “woo”) impressed a very tough crowd (psychologists, behavioral analysts and the past president of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists.) Our senior executives not only found personal value in Calm Clarity’s training, we also expressed a strong desire to support Due in her efforts and to find additional ways to work with each other going forward.” ~Robert Kreider, President and CEO, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health “Engaging. Inspiring. These are just two words to describe Due Quach’s Mindful Leadership Program. M&T Bank invited Due to present to a diverse group of approximately 50 employees; ranging from executives to support staff to salespeople. What resonated with each individual was Due’s compelling, personal story, which served to build not only credibility, but also an openness amongst the group. From there, Due taught us the tools that can be used to unlock the brain and build resilience. A number of attendees even declared to have a reduction in stress immediately following the program!” ~Melissa Govette, Vice President, M&T Bank “Calm Clarity gave our company a common language when talking about maintaining presence in our work and with ourselves and each other. We’re even finding value in using what we’ve learned with Calm Clarity when thinking about big organizational questions like how do we help our staff grow and develop…It was definitely worth it!” ~John Silkey, Director, Milepost Consulting“I have personally witnessed the program transform a room full of skeptical individuals into believers. The key, in my view, is layering neuroscience on top of the meditation. By answering the “why”, the program allows people to more easily embrace the meditation exercises, greatly enhancing their effectiveness. “ ~Brett Topche, Managing Director, MentorTech Ventures “The session was a powerful reminder that a few minutes of thoughtful meditation can have a significant impact on mental well-being and personal effectiveness. Calm Clarity seems well designed to fit into the realities of busy professionals.” ~Idehen Aruede, CFO, Whitney Museum of American Art "After years of wanting to add meditation into the [LEADERSHIP PHILADELPHIA] curriculum, we found the right person: Due Quach from Calm Clarity. Her approach offers scientific research combined with an easily understood framework to practice meditation." ~Liz Dow, CEO, LEADERSHIP Philadelphia, February Newsletter “Due brought the Calm Clarity techniques to a sold out Wharton Club & Penn Club event…She was an extremely engaging speaker with a unique ability to convey important ideas to the audience about brain science and how to bring more calm to our stressful lives. There were many positive comments from audience members after the program. I would highly recommend the program!” ~Heather Aspras, President, the Wharton Alumni Club of Philadelphia "I write to sing the praises of the “Calm Clarity” Program…In my view, all of our students—undergraduate and graduate, at-risk and honors—would benefit much from taking this program. The scaffolded and sequenced modules are clearly presented, intertwined with examples from across the disciplines, and offer a mix of scientific theories coupled with hands-on tools taught and practiced in each session: an impressive blend of meta-cognition meets mission statement; college success meets leadership studies; positive psychology meets lifelong learning…Indeed, there would be much gained by having it as part of an all-campus faculty, staff, and administrator development series, consonant with the College mission." ~Nancy, Faculty observer of the pilot at Cabrini College “It’s a great program. I really enjoyed how the program was a mix of meditative activities and learning about the science behind why these activities work. I am calmer with my students and with my own children and family. I can take a deep breath and react less impulsively than before. I also feel reconnected with my passion and purpose in life… I am more committed to the importance of bringing these tools to students, and I realize how taking time to focus on well-being is not being lazy or soft, but rather essential for people to achieve great things in their lives.” ~Jenn, Teacher and pilot coordinator at Masterman High School Couple or family – 0.00 Weekend Retreat (both Saturday & Sunday) – 0.00
