Even today the air is light, made of freedom, nature and joy. There is a nice breeze that recalls the unmistakable charm of autumn and I throw myself towards the window to capture the rain of leaves that decorates reality with my eyes. The breeze acts as the conductor for this dance of colors and patterns. A hymn to the cyclical nature of life. An ode to death. To actively enter the scene we decide to go in search of leaves, to then be able to make collages or to be inspired by their colors and their textures in the creation of soft watercolors. Only nature can inspire true beauty. And that's not all...even in technology and science the most significant innovations are those that take their cue from nature and are based on its own principles of cyclicity and balance. Receiving implies giving, one way or another, sooner or later, chemical reactions always balance each other out.
Having picked up a small sweet leaf not yet developed to its full size, but already yellow and descended in my hands, I head towards the dark path. I go to the secret village, the forest city with streams as roads. I head there, where my shaman teacher is waiting for me. The one who is giving me the keys to regain possession of my divinity, of my nature as goddess of the earth, that identity that years of servitude and fear have suffocated in an insecure and shameful shell. From today I begin my training which is not as difficult as I feared, on the contrary. Compared to the inhuman demands of Italian schools and universities, where one notion after another has to be devoured as quickly as possible, it seems like a piece of cake. And kind of, it's just like a real walk. Where what matters is how you live and feel in every moment. There are no grades on what you hear, no mistakes that will be marked in red or deadlines to meet. Everyone's walk is their own, without fear that it should be otherwise. It's really a practical school. The main idea is not the finish but learning as much as possible from each stage.
It is a slow, cyclical, gradual learning, based on patience and serenity. If all courses were done like this, very few students would be stressed or unwilling! The first phase of the training is emotional cleansing.. the removal of those repressed emotions that have become stuck in our body and react to any "input" that can be associated with the original wound and make us feel a little "possessed" in an exorcist style . What is emotional cleansing? Nothing more than some breathing exercises.
Deep breathing, from the mouth, with a sustained rhythm even fast in truth and without shame of feeling heard.
With such breathing, eyes closed, attention focused inside the body I mean and arms raised (or to be swung in circles to pace the breathing) it is possible to release blocks stuck in the body. Don't worry if you hear parts you've never heard before. You are just returning to your are finally stepping out of the trap of the mind and its limitations and fears.
