As a wife and mother, I now aim to respond more than react. I have started and will continue to teach and discuss these concepts with my children.
I think this understanding will provide them with a strong foundation for life, an appreciation and grounding for their future.
I have learned immeasurably from these Mondays of focused awareness and guided insights into who we are and what moves and shapes us. The impact has been not only in my teaching and connections to colleagues and students, both individually and as a group, but also to myself and my sense of and place in the world. It has been one of the most unexpectedly wonderful and rewarding opportunities offered.
I truly loved recognizing the subtle and deeper levels of ways that are important and necessary to change my behavior regarding compassionate thinking and action in my life - A peeling of the onion for deeper personal learning took place for me.
This is so valuable and offers me this beautiful opportunity to "see" my core more clearly and to operate from there more often. It's like a light revealed what I knew was there but I didn't have the light before to show it to me it in all its beauty and capacity. What a lovely gift for me and all humanity.
It is amazing how much more peaceful and joy-filled life is now that I am able to see past the downfalls and negative aspects of those around me and instead, focus on our common humanity.
Life University’s CIT program is a life changer! Though I never considered myself to be a “negative” person, I didn’t realize how very biased my belief system was. As I continue to take steps to try to view the world through a lens of compassion, I can feel the beginnings of a shift in my relationships and the way I view others.
I can’t recommend this class enough to anyone who wants to improve their worldview and de-stress their inner selves.
