Emily and IN-Q

“Learning the practice of meditation from Emily has been an invaluable tool for my life and art. It became a non negotiable part of my daily routine last year and remains central to my mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well being. I describe it as a gym for letting go. It has truly helped me to hear my inner voice more clearly. I couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone, anywhere, at any stage of their life.”

– IN-Q

“From the first time I heard IN-Q perform I knew I wanted to work with him. His poetry illuminates the most primal and universal truths inside all of us. Most people with his level of talent are not able to teach. IN-Q is a rare exception. I have seen people who have never written before bare their souls with bravery and beauty in his workshops.”

– Emily

“As individuals, Emily and InQ have mastery opening one up and taking you on a journey of discovery deep within. In collaboration, they are nothing short of combustible. Lucky us. “

– Jeff Skult
