I’ve always played with art, it’s been used as a grounding, a release, and entertainment right into my adult life. But I’m not sure I ever connected to my inner knowing in the way The Art of Allowing class helped me see. Learning to let what needs to surface (through artistic expression) come up for air is another practice I will stay with, even as this class has ended. Slowing down is the key to so many practices. Surrendering to what is arising from within and letting it unfold from the deeper inner promptings…it makes this ride so much more delicious to really own that knowing. There has been a deeper softening within me as a result, and I feel honored to have found such an art teacher who can create a container for another aspect of me.
