The easy tele-class format for meditation and mindfulness

  • The advantage of this tele-class, for someone with stress, anxiety or a busy life, is that you do not have to leave your home or workplace to participate.
  • A further advantage is that you don't have to talk in front of other people or be part of a group. Your level of involvement is completely up to you.
  • No role plays!
  • No one need know you are participating except for those of us at The Emotional Intelligence Institute.
  • It gives you immediate and personal access to a long-term meditation practitioner.
  • It is an interactive seminar held on your computer. There is a presenter and a group of participants. However, instead of sitting in a seminar room you join in via your computer, tablet or 'phone from anywhere.
  • You can see and listen to the presenter speaking.

  • You are able to write questions and comments to the presenter all the way through, if you wish, and hear her responses. You also see the other participants' questions, comments and answers.

  • The tele-classes are not boring - or time wasting. They are packed with high content and start bang on time with dynamic information.
  • You waste no time on travel.  
  • They are at a far more affordable price than a face-to-face presentation.

TESTIMONIALS

Delivered excellent content

This was the first tele-class I've attended. It was easy and a really convenient way to receive training - all in the comfort of my dining room! Rachel delivered excellent content and had plenty of great practical examples.

I really enjoyed the format and Rachel's warmth

I just wanted to say thank you for today's tele-class. I really enjoyed the format and Rachel's warmth and I will benefit from the information shared - all excellent!

I would recommend Rachel's live tele-classes to anyone

It was great to be able to do this live tele-class, in my own space and with no travel and accommodation expenses. Rachel's presentation was short, sharp and to the point; and I was able to take away so much from it, even though we only had an hour. I would recommend Rachel's live tele-classes to anyone wanting to acquire new skills, brush-up on old ones or discover something about themselves.

Loved how interactive it was

What I loved about your tele-class was how interactive it was. You seemed very attentive to our responses via text and took great care in answering and acknowledging them. This surely helped me be very engaged. I like the format of being able to see you on video which made the whole experience as if I was getting a personal coaching. Thank you for doing these classes.

I find the tele-class technology so easy

Thank you Rachel! Your tele-class was a wonderful experience. Living in the country makes it difficult to gain access to valuable information and I find the tele-class technology so easy. Through your support I know that I can take on whatever life and work throw at me and I'll come out the other side intact and not wrecked.

Enormously beneficial

Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed the live tele-class. It was at a time which really suited me in that I could finish work, log onto the tele-class, complete the session and still be home in time for dinner! Once the class started I found it really easy to follow and I could ask questions via the chat box. The information you gave us is enormously beneficial.
