Crystal-edged line

It’s a crystal-edged line between bragging and providing information sometimes. I’ve just finished a very preliminary introductory course to Motivational Interviewing (MI), an incredibly powerful way of framing conversations to allow a person, whether a service provider, a sports coach, a teacher or a parent, to help another person, whether a client, team mate, student or child, to find his/her inner resources to make productive changes in his/her life. Those changes could be around smoking cessation, dietary changes for the management of chronic health conditions such as diabetes, better productivity in the workplace, or or or… DUN DUN DUUN … getting organized.

Here’s where my feet are set on that edge. I know barely anything about MI. I know even less about mindfulness. And I am nonetheless sure, in mind, body and soul, that the two disciplines need to be so intimately intertwined they could be the same.

If I offer nothing else to people who read my blog, I hope I offer them tools. PLEASE look at mindfulness, there are many reputable, free sources to learn about it. Free sources may not be available for MI, but explore whether it’s worth an investment. I believe it is.
