“I attended one of Amanda's retreats on Fire Island this summer.  I was nervous at first not knowing anyone going in, but the group of women were so friendly and open that my worries soon washed away.  Amanda made it clear from the very beginning of the day that this was a safe space and I truly felt that as we journeyed through what it means to be a mindful mama.  I learned that I was not alone in my day to day parenting stresses and was given incredible tools to learn how to take a breath and be mindful every day to help better myself and the environment i contribute to for my family.  I would highly recommend Amanda's courses and look forward to attending another session soon.”

“The Mindfulness retreat was physically, mentally and spiritually a breath of fresh air. It was amazing to embark on a journey where time seemed to stand still. Not only did Amanda hold the retreat in a gorgeous setting, she created an environment for many beautiful moments to unfold. The ease of conversation, quiet meditation, flow of the day, connections and insights left me feeling grateful and wanting more. Cannot wait until the next gathering!”

"I didn't know how much I needed Dr. Salazar's retreat until I was there. The ocean breeze, yoga on the beach, the meditations, and the camaraderie of other women. The entire experience was so healing, so peaceful, and it helped me create this deep sense of calm that I was able to take back to my family."

"I attended two Mindful Mothering retreats at fire island so far, and I hope to make it an annual ritual. the setting was absolutely beautiful - it felt secluded and serene. i met an amazing group of women. we spent the day engaging in mindfulness activities, eating delicious food, and participating in optional "treats' like massages, facials, and tarot card readings. i left the retreat feeling inspired and empowered as a woman and mother!

"Amanda Salazar, also known as the mindful mother, put on the most thorough, thoughtful, personal and relaxing retreat. it was everything my normally busy, energetically charged mind and body needed to unwind. this day gave me the loveliest opportunity to check in and honor self. I felt grateful, for days, not only for Amanda and the countless hours and time she put into every detail, but for all those who showed up, were kind and gracious and held space for me to be me. it's a must attend event! I can't wait for the next one!"

"I was blessed to experience one of Dr. Amanda Salazar's Mindful mothering retreats. The location is absolutely beautiful and relaxing right on the beach. at first, I was a bit nervous to do the group activities, but the group of women was such a perfect mix that I was able to enjoy myself and connect with like minded people. I left feeling so refreshed. i absolutely recommend this retreat to any mama's looking for a peaceful, refreshing day that can turn into life-long friendships"
