After hearing David Hamilton’s recent talk on ‘Is Your Life Mapped Out’ I was reminded of the power of our energy. Working with groups I’m constantly aware of how contageous our thoughts and actions are. One of my students recently brought his guitar to the class and dared to play a tune in the break. This was quite amazing as he wouldn’t have considered doing this a few months ago. The next week another student brought his guitar and also played and sang in the break. The first student had empowered the second student and both gained confidence by supporting one another. We are all vulnerable to each others energy and can empower or disempower each other so easily. I love watching how people grow from supporting each other.
