Testimonials

"I recently brought a group of 12 Further Ed students for a Creative Mandala workshop with Dominika. What can I say, from start to finish Dominika was a pleasure to work with. She was able to fit in all our group numbers even at short notice. She showed a genuine interest in my students and their needs for the workshop. The end result was wonderful. The students could not praise her highly enough and floated out of the centre! It really was a powerful, calm mindful space for the students to reflect on themselves. I look forward to bringing the workshop to our staff!"

"Last Sunday I attended a creative Mandala workshop in Studio 11 Discovery Park Castlecomer. I loved every minute and couldn’t believe how fast the time went. This was totally new for me but Dominika Stoppa the facilitator is brilliant. She brings you into such a calm space and creates a beautiful atmosphere and so freely shares her journey to demonstrate the power of Mandala. I think this a brilliant way for friends, sisters, students to spend a few hours, away from all the distractions in our lives. You leave with a whole new way of doing something beautiful. Thanks Dominika for everything. I love my Mandala."

"Such a creative and relaxing experience doing this Mandala Art. As someone who doesn’t like art absolutely loved each moment of it!"

"Recently I enjoyed a wonderful creative mandala workshop at Dominika's beautiful studio in Castlecomer. I found Dominika to be a wonderful Facilitator, she is a warm and gentle person, creating such a calm atmosphere for the workshop. The creative mandala process itself is very powerful, and clever, and thought of and brought into practice by Dominika herself. I got lost in the process for 5 lovely peaceful hours, a beautiful way to spend a weekend afternoon."

"Thank you Dominika for a most relaxing workshop today, given by such a lovely person. Katie and I had a mother daughter day and it was a lovely way to spend the day and to have our own personal mandalas as a memory.We will definitely be back for some of the great upcoming workshops you have planned."

"I spent a very relaxing afternoon at a Creative Mandala workshop with Dominika and came home with a beautiful piece of artwork. I won the workshop on Instagram but it is definitely worth paying for and I will definitely do another workshop with her in the future. It has restored my love of watercolors and I’ll be creating beautiful mandalas from the printable worksheets that you get from the workshop. Dominika creates a lovely atmosphere with a mixture of art and mindfulness. Highly recommended."

"I LOVED creating the Mandala which I purchased online. It was so easy to get up and started. The instructions were so easy to follow and the ease of printing and getting set up were too. I didn't know what theme I was going to create upon but one very promptly emerged and I'm so delighted with my creation now. I look forward to creating more Mandalas in the future as the relaxation and enjoyment I had with my first exceeded all expectations!"

"I really loved making my first Mandala! It really reminded me of how far I've come in the last few years and also just taking some time out to create something without any expectations, just to do it. Will be doing many more. Thanks Dominika xx"

"My mother and I recently attended a Creative Mandala workshop in Dominika's Studio. It was a fabulous experience. A calming and open atmosphere was created and it was lovely to get the chance to be creative in such a beautiful space. Dominika is warm and welcoming. She shared her artistic knowledge with us and gave us the chance to create something personal and meaningful. The workshop was four hours long and the time just flew by. We could have spent even longer there. I look forward to attending more of Dominika's workshops in the future and would recommend them to people of all ages as a way to relax and take time for yourself."

"Thank you so much for a very relaxing and most enjoyable workshop. My daughter gave me a gift of the afternoon. I had no idea what I was going to do, when you gave us all the pictures to work from and looking at your amazing mandalas and the colours, it was easy to decide. Your mandala with the swans on brought back memories of weeks spent at Galway University when my daughter was in hospital. Sadly Katie passed away in September 2011. Every day on my walk to the hospital I stopped to watch the swans they were so peaceful. Spent 6 weeks in galway away from home, I also light candles every day, reflected in my mandala, forget me nots one of my favourite flowers. Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon and I look forward to doing another class. Great location at Discovery Park. Great class to share with friends or family member my next class will be mother and daughter."

"I would highly recommend the Creative Mandala workshop. Dominika's kind, welcoming, caring nature would instantly make you feel comfortable in her presence. It is truly a wonderful experience to create and work on such a meaningful piece of art. You can create and tell a life story, etc, by using the pictures/symbols that Dominika has created. For me it was so relaxing throughout the process and when I had completed my mandala I felt a sense of relief, like a weight was taken off my shoulders."

"I recently spent a lovely afternoon in Butler House under the tutelage of Dominika Stoppa. She conducted one of her Creative Mandala Workshops. Her gentle presence and support allowed all ten participants to work at their own pace and we each went away with a beautiful piece of art which carries personal meaning. Dominika has very cleverly blended the elements of a visionboard workshop with her love of mandalas and mindfulness. So in this workshop you get all three. I have run visionboard workshops myself but I would honestly recommend Dominika's above my own. If you like any aspect of the workshop (peace/mindfulness, art or mandalas) you will love this experience. I cannot recommend it too highly."

"I had the pleasure of attending Dominika's event in stunning Kilkea Castle recently. It was an intimate group, with lots of interaction and brainstorming. Most powerful of all was the content of the workshop, based on Dominika's experiences and insights, as well as her coaching training. My only regret is that the day seemed to pass in minutes! Highly recommended."

"Attended full day Mental Toughness training which has benefited me greatly in terms of building my own skills and re-enforcing my perspective to enable me to achieve my goals. As a trainer, I found Dominika's knowledge and presentation style to be first class. The open and engaging style of the training was fantastic and beneficial to all in attendance. I felt energised and motivated following the event. Thank you so much Dominika and I'd highly recommend her events to others."

"I have worked with Dominika over a number of weeks. She has been fantastic at getting me to look my productivity through a number of areas in my business. After the process, I have much better control of whats important and what tasks need to be tackled first. I'm sure I will work with Dominika again in the future."

"Dominka has my highest recommendation. She was always well organised and prepared for each session. During our conversations, she listened to me very carefully and asked relevant questions in order to understand my perspective better, and for me to think more deeply about my issues we discussed. She helped me to discover factors that are influencing my current situation and gain a new perception on my plans for the future. Most of all, she supported me in deciding what my life priorities are, so I can be more aware of my work-life balance."

"A wonderful person, excellent in what she’s doing, full of empathy and understanding. Dominika is an amazing listener, what manifests in very accurate use of coaching tools and exercises. I was hugely impressed with the unique and personalized tools that we’ve used during the sessions, as well as in between our appointments. She is incredible at compassionate listening and understanding the human psyche. Our sessions were an amazing pleasure, but most importantly she was an enormous help with finding my own truths. Dominika’s guidance and support make the toughest personal journeys smoother and easier to go through. Dominika helped me with my private life, as well as moving on with my career. I’m recommending Dominika with all my heart and want to say thank you once again for your guidance and enormous knowledge."
