"Justin's work has been so impactful on my students that I've invited him to speak every quarter. His work and book are so relatable for college students. He meets them right where they need him most, at the intersection of mindfulness and action, helping students take realistic steps to enhance their wellbeing and better their lives. I recommend him strongly and widely for any university setting. I've never seen a perspective like Justin's before."
Dr. Shauna Shapiro, PhD, Santa Clara University
"What I love the best about Justin is how he approaches and shares life lessons with others he is transparent and so down to Earth. Justin has allowed me to focus on me and the humanity in others while also questioning how I have been socialized by the influencers/village that raised me. I am deeply enthralled with the workings of Justin."
