  1. my name is Juan Tillis and I was a part of Cynthia’s Meditation Class at Men’s Central Jail,L.A. Co. I was released November 7, 2014 and What I learned from her gentle and skilled instruction on meditation techniques is why I was able to smoothly re-intergrate back into society. I am in the moment more often than not, its much safer there. If there is anyway to get a message to Cynthia Mackay, please let her know that in one man’s life, she has made a tremendous difference and that I am living a life I have always wanted. If it isn’t inappropriate my email address is: [email protected] and my phone # is (310)272-3556. It would be so awesome t hear from Cynthia for she is a part of my story. Thank you so much!
