I call this 'the slingshot effect' in my work with clients.
When it seems that 'I've gone backwards', or that 'I'm back where I came from', or that 'I have regressed', you could choose to get very excited rather than dismayed (not always, obviously; but many a time, for sure!).
Perhaps you are about to be hurled into a brighter future at warp speed. The 'backward motion' is necessary to have the proper effect.
Delivered two "Introduction to Mindfulness" -Marc style- training courses for about 45 staff of a Southeast QLD State Primary School on their pupil-free day.
I'm thinking of running this course (about 3 hours) for the general public, either face-to-face, or online.
If anyone is interested already, let me know, and I'll put you on the list. I may run this sooner than you think!
I would say this course is a must-do if you want to get a grip on stress, anxiety, overwhelm, insecurity and other 'negative' emotions. And, obviously, if you want to know a bit more about mindfulness from a slightly different point of view (i.e. mine).
