Re: Decloaking and Living Authentically – The 5-day, Open-Forum Conversational Intensive for Women to Awaken, Claim and Transform their lives, Inspired by their own authenticity, courage, creativity and design.
Thank you so much for sharing such a profound week with me. It really was a remarkable experience and I can feel that it continues within me now.
I was thinking about the week, which in some ways seems so simple. No text books, no lectures, no structure – just women being open to listening and speaking from a place of genuine honesty. It’s a unique experience and dynamic, and one that inspires me to experience it more often. While just reviewing the week and feeling how it all sits within me, I am struck by the profoundness of it. It’s like I’ve been unified within myself after a long absence away. I notice my breathing that goes deep into my belly and is often accompanied by a feeling of floating, but floating in a settled and grounded way.
One of the greatest treasures from this week is to truly be in a place of not expecting, and even more importantly, not needing answers. Suddenly, there’s no need to be right, to have the right answer and to be ahead of everyone else. After all, ahead of what? It’s as if I’ve finally woken up the realization that there is no one to be ahead of in the first place. There’s simply expanse and space. It’s like an open road ahead of me, but without the structure of a road – it’s more open than that. I am filled with a feeling of having let go to holding on and gripping tightly to something that didn’t even exist in the first place. And I can now see that it’s in the embracing of the “nothing” that I’ve become awake to the “everything” that is me. I am the foundation.
Sheila, on my continual journey with self, you are such a wise awakened woman , a vibration of truth that brought me back to my body, the great source of wisdom that I had been so terrified to connect with, I hold who you are so dear to me. I am creating a very different experience of myself these days, an unfamiliar place of joy, or rather, a deeper place of joy.
