Notes on Courage
Inner work for outer action.
My first vlog (what a horrible word), is a story from my Soul Camp experience a couple weeks ago! Since I loved the experience SO MUCH, I also wanted to do a quick plug for Soul Camp West, which is happening at the end of October in California. Tickets are still available and if you use the code LINDSAYSOUL you'll get a 20% discount!
I didn't realize there was a part two to this story, but...
After the Breathing for Freedom class wrapped up, I was wiped but feeling renewed and ready to move on with the rest of my day. A couple of my bunk mates were with me in the class and one of them took a picture of me to document my triumph saying "I wanted to comfort you, but realized you had it and look at you now!"
I didn't ask to see the pic. The expression on her face was... unexpected, and I figured after all that crying I had one ugly cry face. After recording the video, I reached out to ask for the picture out of curiosity. I figured even if it was a really ugly cry pic, it might be worth exposing the whole experience to you all.
In her response, she stated, "It sure seems you weren't alone. As I remember it was a wet and rainy day?" I didn't know what she was getting at until I opened the picture and was absolutely astounded at what I saw! It was a gloomy/rainy morning (I checked my other pictures from that day - no sun) and my back was facing the n/nw side of the treehouse (where the sun doesn't shine in the morning).
That look on my bunk mate's face wasn't disgust but astonishment. Once again, I am reminded that I am not alone. Ever. GO TEAM!
