Now that your time with the class has ended, I wanted to touch base to learn more about your experience with When Food is Your Mother. I have an end of class survey for you below.
There are three intentions behind this survey
First, your feedback is a great help – it helps us understand what works and what doesn’t, what we need to add more or less of, and what we need to tweak. Most of the changes that we’ve made to improve the course over the years have come from suggestions from our alumni. We need your feedback and listen to it!
I appreciate it may feel awkward to offer negative feedback. I want to reassure you that there’s room in our relationship for your constructive feedback. You’re welcome to talk about aspects of the course that didn’t work for you, what needs improvement, what felt wonky, or changes that can make the course even better.
Second, writing about your experience helps you integrate what you’ve learned. It’s so easy to feel lost in the busyness of life, where our daily habits take over – and seemingly all our insights fall to naught.
This is one reason why intentionally ‘closing’ your time with the course to be with your takeaways is so important. Taking time to notice, honor and to spend time with your experience crystallizes and grounds the insights that you’ve received.
By mindfully pausing, honoring your insights, and consciously noticing where you see changes, you strengthen these changes and support your brain’s capacity for healing and regeneration. You also feed your courage!
Our third intention is to reach new people. As the steward of Growing Humankindness, I work in support of its mission to bring presence and compassion to our inner lives. I care about sharing these tools, and I care about people.
It can be so vulnerable to reach out and get support! And it can be so frustrating when you spend money for support that doesn’t help.
One of the ways I help potential students get to know me is by sharing stories, experiences, and testimonials of alumni on the sales pages and website. If you feel moved to do so, I’d be honored to have your permission to share your experience publicly on our website.
Reading about other students’ experiences helps new students know if we’re the right fit for them. Your story also helps them feel less alone and feeds their courage to get support. This helps them make informed decisions about what kind of help is best for them, whether it’s with us or with another resource.
Please know that there is no pressure and you can say yes or no to this request.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We read every email, are grateful for the time you spent with us in When Food is Your Mother, and hope that she continues to ‘bless and keep you,’ to become a part of your inner landscape of care, support, warmth and nourishment.
With warmth, Karly and the Growing Humankindness team
