1st of September was, traditionally, for me, the beginning of school. It marks the end of the summer, and what a great summer this was. Still riding on an Acro high from the NY Acrofest. This year's logo was Make Magic Happen - and Magic it was. An amazing lineup of teachers, I was honored to be part of. An amazing group of students that we're committed to creating the magic by being tuned to each other and keeping safety while having fun. Acrofest was the cherry on the cake of this whole summer. I developed a training relationship with new bases. In this process I found myself in many situations where I felt vulnerable, exposed, open, trusting, trusted, communicating openly and clearly. So much growth. There were many moments when I felt scared. Feeling of unworthiness, touching my edges, being alive! This kite in the picture, was a present to a friend many years ago. It is not a Washi Washi kite. It needs strong winds to fly. It needs a strong string and a strong kiter. I kept this image with me this summer as a reminder of the difference between a plastic bag, or a kite lets loose and this magical kite in the air. A kite needs a string! It remains anchored to the ground. Only when it is anchored, can it fly high. So are we as practitioners. As long as we are anchored in LOVE, grounded in what's important to us in life, we can fly. If we lose our grounding, our connection to our own hearts, we become a drifter. To keep the magic going, here are some new fall offering.
