This should be compulsory teaching for every human being, at every level of life; from as young an age as possible...

What a blast from the past!

Never realised (until someone referred to the below video today) that people outside my old student group would actually look at these counselling training vids; nearly 10,000 views!

Hopefully people have been able to use the skills under discussion to good use.

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.

TRUST THE PROCESS.

This has proven correct in my life more times than I can count on two hands....

Great day, yesterday!

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).
