    Thank you Gillian and Anthony I am new to the community. I do journal at least 4x/week. I find it very insightful. Sometimes I journal before I meditate and sometimes after. I am interested in the dream analysis. I have recently been recording my dreams. I am finding that even if I remember only a tidbit, once I write it, more follows. I have been categorizing into topics a) the probability if related to something that did happen that day b) what emotions were experienced and c) who the characters were. I will be checking out the links you provided. Peace and Clarity Nancy

    Yes I can see where confabulation could easily occur. I think if the right intention is set for dream interpretation, inner wisdom will speak. I am in the midst of some pretty deep self growth and awareness, which encourages me to take pause and listen. I will have to learn more about Memory Palaces. Thank you... and you never know , that rainy day could be closer than you think

    Hello everyone, I'm Megan Moyer from Santa Barbara, California. I've been an off and on meditator for quite a few years now and have realized just how important a regular practice is for me and my clients. I'm a Life Coach and a Certified Labyrinth Facilitator. I use labyrinths as a form of mindful meditation but not everyone has access to them and since I always recommend mindfulness meditation as a tool for staying in the present, this course will build my confidence and allow me to use meditations with my clients and provide me with many resources when working with others. I'm looking forward to connecting with all of you.

    Oh very nice! Sweden is indeed beautiful. I am in Stockholm in a south suburb, though we have plans to move to the countryside. We're not sure where yet but are open to whatever presents itself.

    David's Presentation was Awesome! I enjoyed his whole approach to Trauma! I actually got to see it twice since he presented at the Embodiement Summit! I took copious notes too! The Key take away for me was "Options" given the PTSD Person options whether with specific choices to open their eyes, leaving the meditation with another person, then coming back; giving them the choice to discern anything with the Meditator after the meeting...all quality choices. His Book sounds awesome too! My Next Read!

    Yes, it is truly a blessing to have that kind of support. Over the years I have learned to be that for others. I have always wanted to help others, and though I meant well, it wasn't always what was needed at the time. Learning to listen without speaking says so much! Where in Sweden are you? Many many years ago, my sophomore year in High School I spent a year as an exchange student in Hudiskvall. It si a beautiful country. Peace and Light Nancy

    I found David's workshop to be helpful, not just in terms of the topic - trauma-sensitive mindfulness - but for the general utility of some of his concepts/models. In particular, I think the TSM Practice model that he shared (3 circles - safe, learning, & overwhelm) is a fabulous framework that can be applied to almost any situation. I used the model the day after the workshop in a coaching situation with a colleague who was struggling with her role on a specific project. The model provided her with a simple framework to help her determine if she was learning/feeling some discomfort, or if she was, in fact, in a state of "overwhelm". Introducing and discussing the model helped inform her next steps in a pretty major way. Another take-away for me was that using trauma-sensitive techniques to teach mindfulness is a great way to practice across the board. I liken this to how changes that were designed to include/make things easier for people with disabilities (e.g., curb cuts, alternative formats) actually end up being better for everyone! I'm grateful to have participated in the workshop. Thank you, Vanessa

    Thanks for sharing this Nancy! It is beautiful and touching to hear about your bonds with your family. I, too, am very grateful for mine. I live in Sweden and my family (parents and sister) live back home in Canada. It is difficult being away from them, but I know that their love and support is always, always there. To share another expression of gratitude, last night I felt an immense wave of appreciation for my partner. I was experiencing some difficult emotions and he was (as he usually is) such a rock. He is able to hold me without trying to change or fix my experience. I am truly blessed with his presence.

    Hello, My name is Saundra Archuleta and I am exciting about learning to be a teacher of mindfulness. I started with the practice of mindfulness about 4 years ago when I became extremely ill. I had a list of complaints a mile long and every physician I saw told me nothing was wrong... that I was depressed and they prescribed a boatload of medications. I kept searching until I found a Functional Medicine physician who knew exactly what was going on and confirmed auto-immune disease and other issues. She takes a holistic approach to well-being and she suggested I try mindfulness. I was very skeptical at first, but after a short while I began to notice significant changes not just with my physical health, but with my overall emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. I now want to be able to share this knowledge with others to help them begin to listen to their own soul so they can heal. I can't wait to begin this journey!

    Hi I am grateful for my family. My parents have both passed on, however their support surrounds me everyday. I have 3 sisters and we live all across the states, but we are in constant conversation thanks t o today's technology. We are closer now than we were growing up. We all have had our share of life changes, and are fortunate to overcome differences. I truly believe that it is because of our parents that we have such a great bond. Nancy

    Hello Sean, Gillian and everyone - I'm really enjoying the course, and learning so much. I work with individuals and families who are recovering from substance use disorders. I specialize in working with families, I also specialize in relapse prevention and trauma. I have an company called Fostering Resilience that provides online resources, I have a private practice and I also work as the Family Program Director for a small residential treatment center in Delray Beach, Florida. I have been practicing mindfulness meditation since my own early recovery from an alcohol use disorder over 12 years ago. Based on the personal benefits I myself have experienced, and what I know and believe to be critical benefits to the population I work with in achieiving successful recovery (individuals and family members), I have included mindfulness meditation in all of my work. I did receive a certificaiton in mindfulness about 5 years ago, but it was basically based on reading materials and was nothing like this course. I am learning so much and I can already see how much my skills have improved. I'm looking forward to sharing what I'm learning with others. Thanks so much for providing this incredible resource! With gratitude, KJ

    Hi Alexaraye! It is lovely to connect with you. Thank you for sharing your work. It is very inspiring and your website is beautiful. I read a bit about your background and it seems that you have a wealth of experience with children and are able to really cater mindfulness to a defined niche. I will send you a note to chat more
