Greatest strength is engaging participant feedback when introducing new slides and materials, closely followed by the use of relevant life experiences as metaphors. Great use of examples of people who may not appear to be suffering but are - and people who we might think are suffering due to some lack that we judge them to have, but they are not suffering from that issue at all.
Good use of the Three Steps of Compassion slide to explain the sequence of events that occurs in compassion.
|How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.|
Could make better connection that the point of the Eight Worldly Concerns slide is cultivating awareness of suffering, even when it is subtle.
Make the connection that discernment is the next step we take after taking the three steps of compassion.
