“The Compassionate Integrity Training by The SEL Lab has been very aligning for me as a process overall. There are tons of things you subconsciously understand or are aware off but you cant really draw them as a mind map. You cant really put the right words in the right format to make sense of the cause and effect of it all. These sessions conducted by Anokhi really helped in adding some structure, logic and format to things that we often get tangled up in. Post the session i would find it fascinating to see certain things play out in my own life and find it a lot easier to then decode them and retain some sense of compassion and empathy. Each session is a great building block to a more stable, EQ driven and safe future for us all.”
