  1. I love the title! And it's timely - Susan Kaiser Greenland recently joined the program for a session on teaching mindfulness to kids. If you haven't seen it, the replay is here: https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/09-01-21-susan-kaiser-greenland-teaching-mindfulness-to-kids/
  2. Hi Cynthia! Following up with you here as well (just responded to your email so you'll also see my name in your inbox). What a wonderful introduction. Thank you for sharing your background with us. It sounds like you have a wealth of knowledge and supportive tools already and I have no doubt that this program will enhance the work that you already do. It's also wonderful to read that you want to learn and are committed to growth. Beautiful! If you have any questions, reach out at anytime. I look forward to learning more about your insight, questions, and experiences. With gratitude, Gillian
  3. Hello Tasha! Welcome to the program and to our community - and thank you for the introduction. I love to read about all the different ways in which people want to share mindfulness with others. It sounds like you are already doing very meaningful work and I am sure that this training will support that. I'm Gillian, by the way - part of Sean's support team and moderator for the community. If you have any questions as you navigate the program, reach out at anytime. With gratitude, Gillian
  4. Hi Kelly! Welcome to the community and to the program. It's wonderful to e-meet you and great to read about your background. Many different paths have led students to teaching mindfulness and a few others have come through nursing as well. I'm Gillian - part of Sean's support team and the community moderator. If you have questions as you go through the program, let me know. With gratitude, Gillian
  5. Hi Alan! Great question. This is a mistake and the names need to be changed in the workbook. I will ask someone on the tech side of things to do this. However, the mindful eating exercises you can explore are located at the link below, starting at pg. 26: https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/course/appendix/
  6. I'll have a look into it and let you know.
  7. This week's question asks: What inner resources could you cultivate to help you to grow as a teacher? We all have room to grow as teachers, and so this week, I invite you to consider inner resources or qualities that would help you to grow as a mindfulness teacher. For example, perhaps you could focus on harnessing more self-compassion, compassion for others, wisdom, curiosity, patience, or something else entirely. What do you feel called to welcome more of into your experience (welcoming it to arise from within) based on where you are now in your teacher training journey?
  8. Hi Melissa, This is absolutely appropriate here! Thank you for sharing openly and reaching out for support. I do not know of anyone studying as a trauma therapist, but one idea I have would be to reach out to schools directly and find out if they have a practicum component for their students. I have no doubt there are many trauma therapists-in-training who don't have people to work with just yet. Schools could help you to get in touch with those who are just starting out or who need hours of practice before completing their program. I hope this is helpful. Sending you love and support! Gillian
  9. Hi Stephany, Wonderful to have you in the program! Thank you for the introduction to your work and inspiration for being here.

  10. Hi Tana, Welcome to the community and to the program! It's wonderful to have you hear. I am a fellow Ontarian from Toronto, though I live in Stockholm, Sweden now. I'm so glad you've followed the universal call to deepen your knowledge and practice and it sounds like you are doing wonderful work. This will be a complement to your existing knowledge I am sure. What have you written? I am a writer and aspiring book author With gratitude, Gillian

  15. Hi Christina! Welcome to the program and thank you for the introduction. I'm Gillian - community moderator and a part of Sean's support team. There are a few students who have self-organized a peer support group. Check out this thread and reach out to one of the members if you're interested in joining.
