Dear Omega Mandala Family,
Thank you again for taking my mandala program at Omega and making my first time there a blessing! I’ve added a few additional links to this page since I first published it. You’ll see a link to the pendant that I wore all week and a link to the awesome pencil sharpener that Billie brought to class.
I’m working up my debrief with notes to self as well as feedback for Omega. I have some suggestions on how they can help a first-time faculty member (like showing me where to find the temperature settings!) They also didn’t follow my request for two people per table. I do apologize that we were tucked in so tightly and as the week progressed it got tighter. Thank you for your patience as we snugly created our mandala art. I’ve already started updating my presentation slides based on your questions and my observations.
If you have feedback that you’d like to send to me, I would love to hear from you. I’m always looking at how I can dial in what I do to make my workshop experiences better and better. Here is my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do hope that I’ll return to Omega in 2019.
