SkillSkill 3: Emotional Awareness
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

MaryCatherine, you did a wonderful job of creating a safe space by reminding of confidentiality and the other guidelines and asking for engagement, yet of respecting other peoples’ time, too. You welcomed everyone warmly with an extended check-in while setting a clear timeframe. You set patiently with silence and asked repeatedly to encourage people to get engaged. Finally, it was very helpful you allowed for space for a short resourcing practice for everyone to arrive in the present-moment.

How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.

You handled the slides of emotional awareness and the glass ball very well by asking questions and leaving lots of room for answers. You received very rich answers (perspective, distortion, fragility of glass ball in the hand) which you might have picked up a bit more to stress their importance and to guide the discussions even more.

What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.

During the course, you wonderfully came back to what people said during check-in, which helps people to feel seen and create a safe space.
You set patiently with silence and asked repeatedly to encourage people to get engaged.
You set the context very well, referring to the fundaments of CIT, mankind’s core of kindness and compassion and how this is an integral part of series I to III.

How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

No CP for this skill. However, you facilitated the Resourcing skill greatly!

What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.

On that note regarding context (see previous question) you might have put this skill even better into relation of Ethical Mindfulness: Emotional Awareness is about the mental events which underlie language and action, we dealt with during ethical mindfulness.

Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?Yes
