  1. Your Welcome, Lisa:)

    We are a Team here, though wish more would participate; I'll bring it up today in the Session today...I'm sure it may seem to be off topic, tho very relative to some of us, right Lisa?


    Lisa, reach out anytime...there is No I in Team! Even, email too if you like.


    Thanks, Gillian for reposting that article; I'll save to my enotes!

    Glad to hear you found it Rick! Yes, there was an update to the software and it seems that the Edit function was moved around.

  3. Your Welcome, Lisa:)

    We are a Team here, though wish more would participate.

    Off the cuff here, Gillian, but is Sean open to & willing to do some Classes on "How to Market our Mindfulness Services"?

    Just curious...I know you passed on that Marketing Article which I have misplaced in my notes; for one thing not all of us have Clients; some do, some of us do not; I have submitted a Proposal to a couple of Cities and a Healthcare system, which have come up blank, so far, though I did receive some minute Leads from one of those city HR Directors...just curious....and it seems this Community would be more helpful to us, with those who already have Clients could share how they got their clients to begin with...there are Stories there that some of us need to hear...is there anyway, you can invite others to come here to share?

    It seems there's a divide here....pausing...it's almost like the have's are happy with what they have & are not sharing...does that makes sense with a slight judgement ( when we are not suppose to be judging, please forgive my judging:(. )...I am ranting so I'll quit...

    P.S. Would you mind reposting that Article please? I'll repost the Link to my E-Notes...which reminds me...is there a way for Post, i.e. Share Files, so all can benefit? In any case, my Intention is looking out for all.

  4. Actually, Gillian,

    I was sharing in my Workbook this week, that when my Partner/Significant Other, and I went for a Walk in our local Park, we did not have scattered thoughts; I explored whether she was open to participating in a Mindful walk without her knowledge of what it is, so we agreed mutually to make it a Visual Mindful walk, which turned out to be pretty Amazing! We pointed out obvious colors along the way in the landscape, yet also aroused a certain curiosity of why certain contrasting colors of bark on certain trees, so, in essence,  were focused in identifying contrasting colors, and even the perception of certain angles of Trees,  e. g. like my Partner commented how one Tree was shaped in the angle of a "V, "as in Victory" she said, which upon sighting the tree close up turned out to be 2 separate trees that were at least one foot apart from one another...so it became a Mindful learning experience for both of us; it subsequently also provided for a positive conversation before going to bed and expressed how much we enjoyed our walk; perhaps to be repeated in a different way next time. Hence this was a very contented enjoyable walk.

  5. Hi Gillian & All,

    We have a section here called Files to Files apparently...I wanted to add my Video to be critiqued, first noticing, No Files were there, so 

    I figured my Video File could be added; I went to load it and received an error message said my File was larger then 9.77 MB...

    If we want our Video Files to be critiqued, why don't we have the Video File space to do so? And what was frustrating was No Files were there!

    So my Friends & Colleagues, where are Folks storing their Video/Audio files? >>>Just being curious????




  6. I believe, Gillian is correct, Amy; you have to download each one; after-all there are so many..

    I would be surprised to hear any differently. Are you sure you really want to do that? There's got to be over 300 or so...

  7. Hi Friends,

    Here is a Great Webinar I just listened to if anyone is a Private Contractor seeking new Projects: hope you can see this; it is called:



    If you can't, www.TD.org is a Valuable organization is a great Talent Development organization to belong to!

  8. Is it any wonder why I have chosen for my Live Zoom Meditation, "Be Still" for next Week?

    I have been reviewing the Script, "Being Still" and adding my own twist to it! The quote by Indira Ghandi is so appropriate as it related to that, too!


                      (I love this quote from Lee J. Colan & Julie Dacis Colan’s Book, The Power of Positive Coaching)

    Indira Ghandi says: 

                    “You must learn to be Still in the midst of activity and to be Vibrantly Alive at Rest”! (Pg. 33)

    I have also been leaning toward Compassion & Self Compassion; and now passing on the short Metta Prayer:

    1.                                                                           May you be Safe from all Harm.
    2.                                                                           May you be Healthy.
    3.                                                                           May you be Happy.                                                               
    4.                                                                           May you live life with ease.    
    6. Enjoy!!!

  10. Hey Gillian,

    Wasn't sure where to put this since we are talking about TSM: (Thought Folks would want to know...hope others come); David's Great about keeping us informed.

    TSM Meet-Up happening tomorrow, Wednesday, January 13th, from 9:00-10:00am PT.

    As a reminder, TSM Meet-Ups are free, monthly gatherings designed to support your work and practice. I’ll open the 60-minute session with a short TSM practice, share some thoughts and experiential practices, and then open up a dialogue/Q&A.

    Tomorrow's Meet-Up is titled, "What's Needed for the Path Ahead? Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness Tools for 2021." We'll explore:

    • How sustained adversity impacts the nervous system (and adaptations you can make to your mindfulness practice and teaching)
    • Which TSM practices best support stabilization and regulation after a period of prolonged stress (e.g., pendulation, resourcing)
    • Ways that the mindfulness community can mobilize in 2021 to support communities that have been most impacted by the pandemic

    Here are the details for tomorrow's TSM Meet-Up event:

    Date: Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

  11. Gillian,


    Thanks, I am feeling a little loss, bear with me...in terms of which group, all I see is the 3 sections for posts! 

    Where those separating  the Internet connections VS us "Teachers-in-Training"; feel like a cluts today...I have been dealing with Insight Timer Tech issues, too..:(

    my apologies...


    1. WELCOME

  12. Hey Katie,

    You may or may not laugh or checkle here; I just emailed Gillian to see if we have a Certification Checklist!! See, every time I see you get overwelmed, it's like we are in sinc with one another...e. g. like in Lesson #6. we have a Project of 20 days to complete:

    "Take a few minutes to journal your thoughts and feelings about your cultural experience and identity for 20 days. Read and reflect on what you are uncovering and where you may focus your attention to increase your cultural sensitivity".

    Anyway, so far one day at a time...coming Wed. to Christopher Germer's Class with Sean? Do you have their Book and workbook? I just bought mineOur Certification Workbook skips around their book?

    I'm done for this AM...it's 1AM...time flies!!

  13. Hey, Gillian,

    You always seem to get my back! Thanks so much!

    Funny you should ask about the Hospital; I just zipped off an email to this Regional Marketing Director who is completely tight-lipped and gave no reason 

    whatsoever, as she is the Top PR Staff person for the Hospital as well, so with my observation of poor communication today at the Hospital, I filed a complaint re: some basic 

    comunication issue today with no response from their Guest Relations Dept. It is afe to say, if Communication issues occur at the Basic level...there must Greater issues at the top, albeit, the Covid crisis ongoing.

    So I left her some things to think about with my Open-door policy prevailing. Anyway, anoer hard lesson to learn here...

    RE: Covid...the Us is struggling on numerous levels to get the Vaccine out; I have applied for the shot with None in sight as yet; we can only pray and hope!:)

  15. OMG, Gillian

    My Anx just revved up! I missed our Weekly with Sean yesterday! At least next Wed. Christoper Germer will be with us...how timely...wish Kristen Neff was with him!! I have been tuning into her Meditations! Their book is Awesome too!!! I get scattered too, Gillian...

    I dont know where my head was at...I was thinking today was the 6th!! Deeeep Breaths....Again...Deeeep Breaths!!!:)

    I'm a little Disappointed that my Healthcare Hospital rejected my Mindfulness Proposal when a Fav. ER Supervisor Nurse I spoke with indicated that Burnout is a huge issue for them! I even inquired how they have dealt with that, No Response...that is Sad!! And this RN has become a Friend; she remembered me when I had to take my Fiance' there many months ago!

    Our Gov't was ravishly attached yesterday by Thugs!!! I hope they arrest them all!! Sorry, but the Belly of our Gov't , the Hose of Representatives was viciously attacked leaving one Female Shot & Killed, and she apparently was a Vet!!! What the hell was she doing in the midst!!!???


    Anyway, it's so Sad! I hope this calls for Greater Security when it comes to protecting our Gov't Buildings!!! You would think we would have learnt somethings after 911!!! Apparently not!!!

    Thanks for letting me vent!!! Our Gov't need Mindfulness Big time!!! Hmmm...I'm thinking...

    My Fitbit indicated I got just 2 Mins over 1 hour of Deep Sleep last night...it usually less and my Mind has been dreaming some crazy dreams even after Meditating in bed...

    Anyway, Happy New Year, Gillian! We deserve a Best year! I have already applied for a Vaccine; that was not encouraging!

    off to do errands!!!:)
