Young Kids and Primary Teachers
“Wisdom whispers to me.”
“I was born with a guide inside. I love my guide inside!”
“I didn’t know about tornado thinking, and I tornado think a lot... now I know how to get over it.”
“I learned my guide inside solved all my problems. And my problem was I worried too much.”
“We need this desperately. MGI has to do with the mental health of all of our students and they need this in order to learn! It’s a necessity. We talked about the principles in MGI throughout the day and while working through second grade problems.” (Primary Teacher)
“This MGI program and its message impacted a student with extreme issues on a level where I saw a different side of him, a spiritual side of him, where he was doing his work and he was contributing to the class conversations.” (Primary/Intermediate Teacher)
Kids and Intermediate Teachers
“From MGI I learned to listen to my little voice inside. I can control myself and make less distractions.”
“I couldn’t figure out this problem. So I put it down and then it came to me. If you have a calm mind, you can work it out.”
“The ideas we have shared in MGI class could help not only me but most likely everyone in the world.”
“Almost every single idea or fact I learned in this MGI class has helped me already!”
“What seemed to be most powerful for the students was to introduce the MGI lesson, share the provided story and then use the majority of our time for students to personalize that idea/concept and share.” (Intermediate Teacher)
“Internally I started feeling each one of us, no matter where we live, how we think, all connect at a point and have a similar thought process around which we operate.” (Intermediate Teacher)
Teens and Secondary Teachers
“I have become very focused in a direction that has helped me mentally and as well physically... my health and mental wellness have improved a lot.”
“Mental wellness needs to be part of every school’s policy because if students do not feel they are capable to learn and don’t have that emotional capacity to learn, school is not going to be successful.”
“I would just add that the kids learning from My Guide Inside —already know all of it, but they just need to tap into it and recognize it.”
“After reading My Guide Inside about knowing myself and understanding about my future and my world, I have come to realize what makes me unique and special in my crowd. I love myself for who I am.”
“I left the MGI class feeling like weight has been released off my shoulders!”
