There was much self discovery, which was both confronting and humbling. I learnt about how I view the world and others and how my mind is a tool that can be used when needed or quietened and put to rest.
As I sit here, in the same spot I was in a month ago I feel a little wiser. I now have a little toolkit of knowledge to deal with the daily stress of running my creative business and life in general. I feel so refreshed and inspired by what I have learnt and by what I still have to learn.
This course was just the beginning of what I now know will be a lifetime of self study and practice. I plan to volunteer some of my new skills in places of need to give myself a little break from Stampel here and there. I love it, but know I need to lead a more balanced life, not just making, internetting and exercising! I'm sure I'm not alone in needing to take some time out. Even if it's just 5 minutes to close your eyes and breath :)
