The educators at our workshop in Philadelphia were "The Bomb!" :-)

I wanted to share with you a huge "ah-ha" moment I had yesterday.  This idea touched my heart deeply and I am curious to see if anyone else has implemented it. 


Yesterday we had a Holistic Nurse come in to speak on how healing happens and self care.  It was beyond what I expected and was very moving.  One of the points she touched on is one we as instructors teach our students; grounding before session.  But she took this a step further and talked about how the massage room was "sacred ground".  Well this did make sense to me, but what I heard in my heart right after she said this was "treat your classroom as sacred".  Wow!  That idea had never crossed my mind!  I can get so wrapped up in everything I need to do, teach, & communicate that I had never bothered to even consider that.  So now I am making it a personal goal, to set my intention for each class before I enter the "sacred learning space".

Go Louisville, KY!  Thanks to all the wonderful instructors who made this day so fun and informative at the Seelbach Hilton!  No ghosts in our picture, but we had a great time talking about building capacity in our students! Keep us posted fellow Capacity Coaches!

Thank you for coming to Columbus! I had been watching the cities you were hosting the workshop in and was so excited to see you had added the workshop in August. It was great and we have implemented some of your suggestions into our classes! Hope to see ABMP workshops in Columbus again soon!

Thanks to the educators in Madison, WI for hosting a fantastic workshop in Badgerland!  Kathy & I loved hearing about all of the creative ways you're helping your students succeed and hope you enjoy the benefits (for you and your students) of capacity building!
