Being in it Differently
I had the pleasure of presenting an evening of Mindfulness, Education and Meditation with the theme of ‘being in the things out of our control differently’. It was at the TDSB for the ETFO Toronto Occasional Teachers Local. Was a wonderful group of teachers who were very engaged with lots of sharing, questions and comments – made the evening a lot of fun! Am thankful for the experience!
Being rather than doing. Making space for learning around new ways of being with thoughts and breathe.
Here’s a testimonial from the supervisor of the event:
“I contacted Colleen in my process of trying to develop a brand-new Professional Learning workshop for Toronto Occasional Teachers. Since I wanted one of the components to be a strong focus on mental health, I reached out to Colleen for her expertise in the practice of Mindfulness and Mediation. In order for us to establish the content for the first part of the workshop, Colleen communicated with me both via phone-calls and in person meetings so that we could establish the needs, interests and lifestyle of Occasional Teachers. It was important that the workshop that she was developing would provide strategies that were meaningful to our diverse participant group. The feedback from participants in this workshop was incredible and members found her engaging, insightful and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her as a presenter for any Mindfulness and Meditation workshop!” Andreea Constantin, Second Vice-President, ETFO Toronto Occasional Teachers’ Local.
