Hello, also from Scotland!

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Jane and I have been a facilitator for many years.  I have been facilitating a programme for community nurses that uses mindfulness  for the last four years.   Many of them have integrated mindfulness into their teams as well as into their work.  Although I have undertaken a course in mindfulness, I really want to thank Sean for the weekly musings - they are so helpful both for myself but also in terms of introducing new ideas into the programme - so thank you!

Hi Jane 

It’s nice to see someone else on the forum is from Scotland. Coincidentally my professional role included facilitating courses to a charity’s social care staff. After four years caring for my parents who sadly passed in 2020 I’m now hoping to show how mindfulness can help my local community.

Lovely to connect with you Lesley -Anne and I am so sorry to hear about your parents.  I wish you all the best for 2021.   Its interesting that we both support work within the charity sector which I enjoy so much.   I retired from my substantive role in the NHS last May but have kept on this work on.  It would be great in due course to hear about your community work.

Jane

      I feel present, calm and grounded when I'm focusing my breath and also some thoughts just run out here and there but I'm ok with that just let it be and I can feel my eyes are very tired that I don't even really care about it. I think I will have a good sleep tonight. 
    • Hi everyone,  I am Thuraya. A Palestinian educator who has been looking for different ways to practice mindfulness and help myself know how to let go. I am using this platform to get more into practical performance of mindfulness and the correct implementation of its techniques 
    • Hi everyone, I'm so glad to be here participating! A few months ago I finished a midfulness training. Time goes by very fast and there is always a lot to do in my job; but I want to continue cultivating mindfulness and teaching it;  for me, it´s  a challenge to be able to communicate in English(another reason to be here).  When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut 🙂 and also a truck driver. Later, as a teenager, I wanted to be an engineer. And after the experiences life has given me, now I want to go slowly and slowly. I loved music, and I had a CD of music of Buddhist monks, I liked to listen to them, it relaxed me, I didn't know I was going to meditate 🙂 .   Greetings to all!  
    • Hi Wahby17,  Welcome! What a Story to behold; one never knows what Comic Figures can be powers of example, especially ones who Meditate!
    • Hi, I'm a university student who has been meditating his entire life for multiple reasons. It might sound stupid but as a child I loved reading comics, and one of my favorite characters was Iron Fist. Basically he meditated a lot, so out of habit I did too in an attempt to imitate him, and bit by bit I got more and more interested as I saw results both mental and physical. I researched more and more and became more aware of myself. I'm glad I can now join communities with people who can share their different experiences on this topic.
