Comments of Participants: Equanimity

Here are comments of participants about equanimity

  • I feel calmer and more able to deal with the stresses of the job.  I am more able to pace myself.  I can stop and say, ‘be   mindful’ to myself and I find even that is very helpful.  On a practical level, I always let the phone ring twice and take a couple of breaths before answering it.  It works wonders.  I have been inspired to start ‘a few mindful minutes’ at work and have invited staff to join me for a 15 minutes meditation once a week.  I am hoping that I can make this 2 or 3 times a week in the future.
  • Constantly returning to my breathing for stillness and presence
  • More of a feeling of calmness and taking each moment at a time.
  • More patient with myself
  • Mindful of being in the present much more than before
  • I feel I am calmer and more thoughtful and more aware of everyday ‘normal’ things.    I am a better listener.
  • Less reactive, more resilient, easier to be in relationship with, more dynamic.
  • A set of principles and practices that can be drawn on in times of need
