You did a wonderful job in creating a safe space by giving a warm welcome and giving a good and clear overview and making sure that every participant understood where they are in the training itself and what will be happening during the session of skill 8.
You did an outstanding job in spending time on the logical sequence of the CIT series on the one hand and the skill on the other. Skill 8 is the culmination of all the previous skills integrating all of them. By giving space to the fundamental questions about skill 8 as well as the foundational concepts of CIT, you cherished the importance of the skill. Moreover you spent time by looking at series II as a bridge between series I and III. Also, you provided a great conversation starter by asking "Why are we doing compassion in skill 8? You asked thought-provoking questions like: "Is compassion always positive" You spent a lot of time with the image of the definition slide and demanded the participants to look closely and to reflect. Thus, you harvested beautiful replies. Which was excellent.
You allowed space at crucial points. Your way to approach the material, to ask fundamental and thought-provoking questions, is facilitating in a very pure sense and enables to harvest the most beautiful and diverse responses.
You were not in charge of this skill's CP. However, you did a nice breathing practice as a perfect segway between the above mentioned meta-level discussion of series II and skill 8 and the actual content of the skill.
You might want to use a bit more invitational language. In stead of using "we request" you might want to use "who would like to" "I invite you" as we want participants to feel more invited to share and participate than feel obliged to do so.
