Pour une pratique engagée, active et volontaire de la Punk Mindfulness. La mindfulness, aussi appelée « pleine conscience », est un état de conscience résultant du fait de porter son attention, intentionnellement et sans jugement, sur l’expérience...
I wanted to try something new and develop my leadership skills at a crucial time in my professional career. I recommend the "Peace & Power" training to anyone in a situation of professional change. I was looking for more meaning in my work, and thanks to the techniques I learned in this training, I was able to discover what exactly has meaning for me. I was amazed because I thought these elements would be extremely hard to uncover. In the context of my professional development, it was very useful to have this information on hand.

The "Peace & Power" training addresses the need of our times, and comes at a moment when certain practices which were once thought to be New Age, such as meditation, can now be considered applicable in the work environment. The range of tools offered in the class is enriching and accessible. The atmosphere created by Betsy is perfectly aligned with our expectations for this type of class.

The training exceeded my expectations in its immediate effects on my stress management and that of my team. Betsy has truly figured out how we can adapt to our work environment and to modern times without having to disrupt our lives, simply by using a few simple tools and becoming conscious of our environment.

I'm an intern at the hospital. Our days are long and intense, and there's a large mass of information and emotions to manage along with unending interruptions. I needed help to work smarter while respecting my own needs more. That's what the Peace & Power training offered me, a more open mind, and techniques for working better. I recommend this training or the coaching services to all interns, doctors, and other health professionals who feel this unease, torn between the desire to care well for patients and protect yourself from being submerged by your professional life.
