We think we have to have perfected technique…we think we have to be an expert before we put ourselves out there.
But that’s not it…
It’s about our hearts. Can we show up present, with an open heart, ready to embark on a learning journey?
More than anything
it’s about a willingness to participate,
to enter into a new, trusting relationship with the process.
