I had never done this in front of an audience before: I wanted my class to experience what it was like to see someone paint "in the flow" - Led by SPIRIT VS. the rational MIND. So I became the teacher I wish I had had: I turned off the lights, took off my shoes, turned up my favorite music, stretched, took deep breaths and allowed my body to be guided and moved by Source. The results? MAGIC. Nearly everyone in the room (including me, of course) stared wide, blinking back tears.
When we're vulnerable, brave & fearless, we give others the opportunity to do the same. To say this class was "special" would be an extreme understatement. Our hearts and minds were open, eager to make new connections, push beyond our preconceptions and express ourselves as authentically as we possibly could.
