“This experience was a wakeup call.”

For me, I was at a volatile state and this experience showed me that actually what I needed to do, was not diffuse or fix it, but step away and look at my life. It gave me an opportunity to see myself for who I really am.

This experience has helped me to be more gentle with myself and less harsh. I realized my patterns of thinking that I use on myself and how I expect the same from others. Now I know: It is what it is. I don’t have the power to change the world, but I can look after myself. Through this, I help other people, became a better father and a better husband.

The insights help me even on bad days. I have now that awareness to help me realize that it’s OK. The pressure is off. It has been lifted. I am more forgiving to myself.

The experience impacted my relationship with my wife. I am seeing my wife a lot more for who she is. That was an eye opener. I realized again to say thank you and I love you. For example, she recently got promoted. I sent her a long proud email to congratulate her. She felt really loved. I realized that I can be more lovable.

My whole life was me trying to be somebody else. I always aspired to not be myself. Now I see this and am dealing with that. I don’t have to worry anymore to be something different than I am.

“I learn to be more conscious and to really use mindfulness in my daily life”

It was an experience in which I mirror myself in a very deep and transparent way in front of other 2 that were doing the same… and we support each other towards our evolution and development… I learn to be more conscious and to really use mindfulness in my daily life

“The triad was a safe space to be really honest and open and, most importantly, heard – quite a rare thing to find!”

It offered me new perspectives and continues to give me lots of food for thought. Our facilitator was wonderful, incredibly sensitive, intelligent and insightful.

“This experience should be a prerequisite to life as an adult.”

Everyone will benefit from taking this program. It really helps you to understand your personality and why you react in specific ways. It also helps you to be more mind-full and present in your daily life.

“I would say that everyone, which ever status, aspiration, gender, etc. would benefit from the TeamUp triad”

It would make them more aware and most importantly more connected to other human beings. I also would say that if anyone wants to feel an unfathomed sense of gratitude in this life, joining this course is the key.

“The courage to communicate in a healthier way”

The greatest lesson I learned through working with my Triad was that we can ask members of our community to help in our process. One personal example for me centers around approaching what feels like a ‘negative’ emotion with more openness, rather than internalizing it.

Also, I realized that if I deal with ‘conflict’ more in the moment, I feel lighter and there is less of a risk of that conflict escalating into something larger, later.

Finally, I realized that if we can make our friends and or family members aware of what we are practicing, regardless of which community we belong to, we can cultivate the courage to bring these practices into other areas of our lives.

“The course definitely helped in my personal growth”

I thought the course definitely helped in my personal growth which can be applied to my job as well as personal relationships with family and friends… I would also add that it’s not the typical self-development, hippy-dippy life coaching workshops that I would NOT be interested in.
