FEEDBACK from BWW participants

-Thanks for providing this well needed break during our busy virtual weeks.

-I have been loving these weekly be well Wednesday sessions, especially the breath and mindfulness exercises!

-Thank you so much for presenting this. It is so needed. I hit a wall and didn’t even know I was headed for it. I have been recommending it to my colleagues.

-I just wanted to express my thanks for these gatherings. I attended my first this past Wednesday, on the topic of Emotional Intelligence. I got a lot out of it, and thoroughly enjoyed the writing questions and sharing.

-I’m always surprised by how much I get out of the self-reflection sessions, like today’s with Caitlin, or last week’s with John.

-I am very grateful to have Zoomed in today and found Tonglen with you.

-I just learned about Be Well Wednesdays last week and loved the Tree of Life Journaling. Thank you for offering this. This is much needed right now.

-Thank you for creating and facilitating this space!  It is always a much-needed respite in the middle of the week.

-I love the music.

-I loved Tatiana Kline’s gratitude and journaling.

-I've loved all the exercises, having different folks leading the discussions, and your calm, encouraging spirit.
