The atmosphere was so special, I’ve never before felt the way I did this weekend. It was such an embracing and soft feeling every second. Signing up for this was also a challenge for me (as mentioned before), but none of the difficult emotions connected to it won! Isn’t that an amazing feeling? The good – the trust and calm – won! I mastered it, and I will actually call it some sort of a life changer. I’m so glad I did this for me.
I love to give you both behind the scenes, warm touches of the atmosphere, and the final results of our work. I was such a tormentor, ha ha, but I could not resist observing and shooting the preparations of these two. Amazing women!
I fell in love with these chairs.
Sanna wrapped everything so nicely, matching her white dotted ocher dress so well, and my camera was shooting like all the time. Felt like I got it all for free, not much strive involved from my side. I was just enjoying the beauty in front of me.
The food… I mean, the f o o d!!!! Lisa, she must have had a magic wand or something. It resulted in me not being able to buy any of the crap on the airport on my way home yesterday, so I didn’t eat between her amazing lunch at the workshop and getting some food with my husband at midnight back home. I just missed Lisa’s food while being hungry on my way home. Such an inspiration, she opened some new doors to me.
Every morning I drew a random card from my animal spirit card, just like home. I also kept up my meditation routine even though I had to do it after I went to bed since we started the day with yoga at 7am. So glad we did, I had never tried yoga before (I know!!). Olivia was the best, but I forgot to ask her to do some yoga when I had my camera, so unfortunately I don’t have any photos of it. But do you remember my husband made music for the little yoga film Babes in Boyland did? That’s Olivia!
More about the animal spirit cards, because the card I drew the morning I was going home, and the card I drew today at home was rather interesting. Yesterday, when I was going home the, I drew a random card, and it was the lizard: ‘…Big crowds, lots of travel, or overstimulation will drain a lizard of their magical essence. This card is an indication to pull back from the bright lights and big city… and return to the inner artist, who’s been whispering your name.’ I have to admit I could feel the cold run down my spine when I read that one! And today, back home, I drew the bear: ‘After a long winter the bear arises from deep slumber (…), it’s time to move toward the dawning light. The bear card represents an individual on the cusp of new directions and personal transformation (…) You have no choice, Bear. Winter wanes, the warmth of spring emerges, and the journey of your transformation begins’.
Well, I’m ready! 😉 Thank you workshop-weekend for hitting my heart big time!
