I loved the mindfulness practice, I have always found related activities successful. I would like to add this and yoga to my regular practices, I feel that both are very useful. I actually wrote part of a paper on mindfulness being used with sexually abused victims in my summer class, as an option to use if the individuals were not ready for therapy yet, or in conjunction with therapy. I feel that most Americans would benefit from taking the time to calm down with mindfulness. I have explored this on my own a bit, after attending a seminar last summer.
I am very thankful for this class overall. I am glad to have just read chapter 15 in regards to my Mom moving here from Colorado 3 years ago to be near me, and ultimately for me to care for her. I am glad that she is here and will have better knowledge towards helping her now. I also have 2 teenagers and thus putting that knowledge to use will be great as well..
Thank you for being a great instructor.
