I enjoyed the total participation and how it flowed throughout the day. I was not expecting the day to have such a profound effect on me!
I really enjoyed the playful, magical quality to the day and appreciate how easy Jon made it seem, but also how incredibly skillful he was! I also really appreciated how he made such a point of making contact with each one of us throughout the day, I am one of those people who can disappear into the background and feel separate because of it (!) I really appreciated the way Jon kept bringing me back into the group in such a warm and gentle way, it made me feel included, and I have never experienced that in the same way in any other group. That was a big teaching for me personally. Thank you!
Attending the Earthwalks course has given me confidence to know I'm on the right track in my existing work & that I'm not alone! It helps enormously to share these sorts of sessions & be reassured there are other kindred spirits who understand the instinctive & creative work that reconnects/reminds us of our wild nature soul.
