The participants’ experience of “falling down the hole” is discussed, and this is connected to further cultivation of awareness as a way to track our experience without reacting to it. The discussion of reacting versus responding is broadened to incorporate our experiences with others, and how we communicate with others. The participants are provided with psychoeducation on different communication styles and are encouraged to track these as well as the tendency to respond versus react. Participants continue with Open Monitoring and are invited to track their mindfulness in daily life and to find ways of adding to their mental bank account.
