Introducing myself - Randa from Chatham ON Canada

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone - 

Okay, this is awkward... I've been ignoring emails, and am just now sitting down to look at this site and what it offers!  Since achieving my certification (thanks Sean!), I've been very busy growing my practice in my small community.  I'm operating out of two locations at the moment, and just completed presenting several mindfulness meditation presentations at a half day wellness fair my former employer offered yesterday (I retired a few months ago).  During each 45 min session, I conducted 3 short meditations, and a presentation about mindfulness and meditation. One of the meditations was mindfulness of laughter, which proved to be quite energizing for people going back to work after meditating for the first time.

Interest in mindfulness and meditation is growing, and I'm happy to be contributing to a new not-for-profit mindfulness and yoga center in Chatham, called Sati Hall (www.satihall.com). We offer meditation of various types, yoga, mindful art, as well as a whole variety of workshops and retreats.  Looking forward to getting to know others in this community.  I meet with Yvonne from NY regularly. We met on the Facebook group, and have been each others' accountability partners for the past several months.  I'm sure she'll finish the certification requirements soon.

Welcome Randa! Thank you for the lovely introduction. I'm an Ontarian myself (from Toronto).

It sounds like you are really putting your certification to use by growing mindfulness in your community. That's wonderful! Do you have previous experience guiding/teaching people or is this a new beginning for you? (Well, I guess everything is a new beginning!)

I'd love to hear more about your insights and experience. If there are any resources, thoughts, or ideas you'd like to share, feel free to post in any related forum thread, or create a new one.

In terms of any events or workshops, feel free to post them in the calendar

If you have any questions about the community or other ways to get involved, let me know 🙂
