This 8-session course certainly went above and beyond my expectations. It worked very well over Zoom and doing it as a group training has been a great experience for the general staff morale and relationships during this unprecedented time.
I found it more helpful than I could have imagined and (not to exaggerate) life changing. For such a small amount of time, there are so many little things I’ve learnt and realised that changed my perspective on myself, other people, difficult situations and general life.
Even if I wasn’t practicing mindfulness, it was in the back of mind when making decisions or being critical of myself/something. It expanded my knowledge and is very useful to have the recorded practices to go back to when needed.
My overall impression of the course was that it was fantastic. For me I learnt a lot of new practices as the content was broad and touched on many areas.
I found it really gave me permission to stop moving and thinking in the middle of a busy work day, which was a huge benefit. Having the weekly space to stop and calm my body and mind down was really useful. I also enjoyed Trish’s perspectives on various things relating to mindfulness, and also to societal pressure, guilt, shame and stress.
