Silly ideas can become meaningful so encourage people to be creative and silly, especially in the beginning... Quantity vs quality!

It was slightly outside my comfort zone, but those pushes are exactly what I need to become a better (and more magical more creative) me!

I appreciated connecting with new colleagues plus deepening existing relationships. A colleague and I talked about the conflict we had... we reflected on it and gained so much empathy for one another. This was a beautiful moment.

I'm sceptical of virtual events because I really miss in-person gatherings. But I was beyond impressed with Abracademy's retreat. I love that sessions were facilitated as it allowed our leaders to be present.

This was time well spent. It's always encouraging to hear the thoughts of others, share yours, feel validated in your beliefs, and work through your challenges with others in an open and honest environment.

The highlight was the Magic of Teams because how we handle hard work together is critical. It’s important to take a moment, listen to each other, be vulnerable and think about how to become a high performing team

Seeing our feet on all the different terrains was kind of amazing! We even walked in synch for a moment, which made me feel connected to everyone despite the many miles between us. By the end of the walk, I actually felt as though I'd been on a walk with everyone and shared a very special experience.

Abracademy provided an excellent service. A professional and personal service, ensuring that our children received lively and engaging sessions. They taught our children across 8 weeks and the children couldn’t wait for their “magic” sessions each week! They raced onto the playground to show their friends, parents and staff their new found skills!! I will be using the company again!

My big learning experience was about the subjectiveness of emotions. That you can gain control over them with a simple framework, which will prevent them from overwhelming you.
Abracademy Open Workshops
I had a WOW moment being confronted with a past fear. I was never challenged to do that before, and to connect it to my habits and behaviours today.

Everyone can be creative. Society has made us less creative, but you have to break out of the structural barriers. Think like a child. Have no fears. Have fun.

Working with Abracademy to develop and deliver such a positive experience for the RawMinds project participants has been great.
