Small is beautiful when it comes to offering quality Mindfulness training that meets the needs of each unique organisation. Opening Minds makes a point to practice what we teach. We choose to have time, to embody flexibility, to support community. If we get too busy then we lose touch with the magic that is Calm Clear and Creative.
A message from Neal Thompson, Operation manager - Nelson Community College:
I just wanted to thank you for yesterday's Mindfulness training that you provided us with.
As a college we are very particular about who we choose to help our staff in the area of personal development. We have limited funds and therefore have to make sure that every cent we spend is well apportioned and that we get the maximum out of what/who we select.
We were not disappointed in you, the consensus from all those that attended was extremely positive and all have asked if we can re book you asap for another session.
Their feedback to me as college operations manager was that the course content was perfectly tailored to suit their needs, you obviously did your preparation well in finding out exactly what we do here and this showed. Some courses that have been facilitated for us have been 'one size fits all' and this can lead to frustrations. What you did was unique in content and delivery and was very well received and appreciated. I can honestly say that I have never seen the staff so engaged and positive over any course that we have had here.
It was inclusive and had just the right balance of information and co operation. The pace was just right and no one felt left out or that the course content was too much to take in.
It had elements of humour and fun and left all that attended feeling that they had achieved something and wanting to learn more about this subject. There was a warmth and humility to the course too that was equally appealing and made the whole experience both educational and stimulating.
I will be recommending you to other providers in this field and I am comfortable in the knowledge that my recommendation will be appreciated by them. When sourcing professional, well constructed courses in this area there can be a confusing amount of options out there to choose from. I am so grateful to the person who put me onto you and your company that I really want to pay this forward to the next provider who seeks help in the area of Mindfulness.
I cannot recommend you highly enough, but I will do my best to...you have inspired me and the staff at Community College and it is not over exaggerating to say that your course is life changing.
We will be using the skills you equipped us with for a very long time both in our personal lives and in our work lives too.
Thank you again Jaime.
