A recent quick testimonial for my speaking, which is not as relevant as it’s not about tech, but in case: “Lida is great at leading a session about mindfulness theory and practice. She is a mindfulness meditation enthusiast, and she has cumulatively spent 2+ months at silent retreats, with 11 hours of daily meditation. She went to another retreat in October and a longer on December last year.
