Hi, my name is Vincenzia
My field of interest is on how mindfulness can be used in recovery. There are many approaches to recovery and I have noticed a shift towards more eastern approaches when it comes to support groups but not much with actual recovery programs people can enroll in (in-person or online). There is the 8 steps book and support group and then Refuge Recovery as far as I know. Both being incredibly helpful but barely scraping the surface of what is needed out there. Therefor I have dedicated two years to further learning of addiction and to strengthening my mindfulness practices in order to design a Mindfulness Recovery program that deals with food, social media, technology, nicotine and other form of addictions. I, myself have been in recovery for quite some time now and most likely wouldn't have been had it not been for my introduction to buddhism and mindfulness many years ago.
I am a Certified Life Coach, artist and sculptor. I spent many years working with children with special needs and have a very special and personal interest in Autism.
I would love to connect with anyone that also has any of these interests in order to share resources, experience and theories.
Starting a new learning experience is always something exciting and inspiring.
A process in which you have to question yourself, acquire new skills and meet new people to be inspired by.
The choice of taking Sean Fargo's course has already turned out to be among the best i've ever taken. As a nationally renowned psychologist and writer, I can't help but be intrigued by taking part in the most comprehensive and accessible mindfulness course on the internet. This is why today, while writing these words, I feel hopeful, happy and grateful to all of you.
This week's question asks:
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to teaching mindfulness?
Whether it's gaining confidence, reaching a wider audience, knowing your niche, or something else, I'd love to know what you might be challenged by as a new (or upcoming) mindfulness teacher. Jump in with your own reflections or offer supportive words for other teachers.
