I have been creating my one-woman show. The performance is then followed by a group process with the audience that I facilitate. It's my graduation project for my Radical Aliveness Core Energetics training.
It feels big. I'm stepping into unknown territory. And I occasionally get overwhelmed with my own feelings - almost to the point of feeling like I could pass out. I had my own session yesterday with my healer guy and I was talking about all of the fears that were coming up for me and he said, "Have a freak out." And I asked, "Can I leave my body?" And he said, "I would prefer it if you didn't." And so, I began to let my body surrender to the freak out - I screamed, I cried, I shook. While staying in my body. And then, my whole body calmed. I felt completely present. And I went back to work. Simple.
Simple - not easy. It has taken me years to learn how to stay in my body and feel everything. But, it has been worth all the work. To feel that I am living my life doing what I'm meant to be doing has made it worth it. And I have needed powerful supportive mentors in order to go all the way.
If you are needing support to really stay grounded in your body in order for you to do your work as an artist - or if you are blocked in any way from feeling everything you need to feel to allow the creative flow - come to my next 1-Day Artists Workshop on Saturday, April 20th. Or, if you are ready for more consistent powerful support, join the April 4-Week Evolving Artists Group.
