The first offering of the 90-minute “Take Charge of Your Moods: From Chaos to Calm in Just Seconds” workshop was well received by participants at the Living Well Cancer Resource Center in Geneva, IL (http://www.livingwellcrc.org) on Thursday, August 29, 2013.
The workshop ran for 86 minutes, with four minutes for completion of the feedback form. Here is some of the feedback:
What did you find to be the most valuable learning from the workshop?
- (Take Charge of Mood anchor)-#2 (anger), #3 (neutral), #4 (calm & resource)–Great seminar, very resourceful–can us it–anyone, anywhere, everywhere, perfect 🙂
- Using touch to anchor–back of hand (#4), 3 fingers together (#1)
- My Anchor map
- Anchor point exercise
- The anchor chain–#2, #3, #4 (Take Charge of Mood Anchor)
- To go to a peaceful, comfortable place
- Moving from a negative emotion to positive calm by using anchors
- You are (I am) in charge of your (my) “moods”
- How to transform from angry mood to neutral to calm (Take Charge of Mood anchor)–Hope it works.
- Really liked the Circle of Excellence (#1)–Glad you switched 🙂 (It replaced another anchor in this workshop)
- Practical ways to change from anger to calm
- 1-2-3 change moods (Take Charge of Moods anchor)
- The anchor process seems very powerful
- Assigning physical body parts w/ our anchors–it’s an easy way to remember our moods in everyday life.
- “Anchors” are a helpful concept for me.
General feedback on the workshop:
- Thank you–really powerful. It can be used in so many places and in so many ways to help so many.
- I feel calmer at the end of the workshop than when I walked in.
- I really liked the breathing and how to gain calm through the (My) Anchor map.
- Helpful, generous with information–(navigator’s) calm demeanor
- A lot of material was provided in a short period of time. It was very helpful for me because you used anger as the example.
- This was an excellent workshop. The navigator was very knowledgeable.
- New information! I’ll have to practice in order to integrate it.
- He (navigator) was very understandable and it was very worth while.
- I liked the practical experiences.
- I enjoyed the partner stuff (exercises in creating anchors).
- It was a good workshop. I do think it would be fun to learn more techniques in the future. (More workshops are planned, covering different techniques)
