It has been an intensive last couple of days for me. Thanks to Triana my post got posted yesterday (no wi fi available where I was, unless I wanted to pay a fee which I didn't want to do)to my apologies for being remiss on Sunday night, I gave up trying to find a place with free wi fi where I was at when I was pretty tired to begin with.
So where was I the last couple of days?
I had to attend a training on how to facilitate a Civic Reflection session. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when we started and now after spending these last few days immersed in it, i find myself both invigorated and tired at the same time- in a good way I might add. Wow is the best word to describe the experience of participating and it has left a very meaningful impression on me. To learn a little bit more on what I'm referring to, visit the Project on Civic Reflection
I haven't really fully assimilated in my head all that I learned or even quite been able to express to myself what the full impact of this training was on me. I will tell you that I did experience a level of personal humility as I ended up sharing some personal information during some of our discussions- stuff that I did not think would come up in conversations with so many of my professional colleagues. All in all I highly encourage you to find a way to participate in a Civic Reflection session, it will be well worth your time.
So with that said, I'm quite tired so I will return to my normal posting tomorrow. I do hope everyone has been having a wonderful week or at least had one good thing that happened to them this week.
