Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

I am Marina Schiefer, I was born in Argentina  fifty four years ago and I moved to to this Country when I was 31 years old with my family ( 2 kids and husband).

I graduated from Fordham University with a Sociology Major and I continued my education at One Spirit Learning Alliance for Interspiritual Counseling. I grew tremendously spiritually when I started to at One Spirit and since then I have not stopped, even for one day ,looking for tools and resources that could help me even more to go deeper and deeper.

I am currently working for an Agency that helps people with physical and intellectual disabilities to become more independent possible besides their capabilities. 

I chose to enroll in this program because I believe it will improve my  work skills , I will learn how to guide  others how to achieve mindfulness to succeed in their own soul evolution and in life. Lastly but no least , these tools will also help me to improve my personal growth even more.

Hi Marina! A warm welcome to the program - and thank you for sharing about your journey of growth and discovery. Many, many students comment on how this program supports them both personally and professionally, so you are in the right place for that.

Reach out if you have any questions as you move through things (I'm part of Sean's support team).

With gratitude,

Gillian

Hi @Marina Schiefer,

Great question! This one comes up from time to time. 

Essentially, we are looking for you to share any ways in which you think you can teach or embody the attitudinal foundations. This could be through the use of stories, metaphors, instructions, quotes, etc. I can give you a few examples that might help to clarify this for you:

-Beginner's mind - "At the start of the session, I will remind participants that no matter how many times they've meditated, each moment is an opportunity to approach our experience with fresh eyes"
-Patience - "When students express frustration that they're not experiencing the fruits of mindfulness, I will talk about how things naturally unfold; that mindfulness is not about rushing to achieve or experience or fix"

We also discussed this question during one of the live Q&As - you can find that discussion at 1:38:22 here: https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/03-02-22-gillian-sanger-certification-requirements/

Let me know if what I've shared here helps ūüôā
