I have written quite a bit about Taproot – Barbara Dewey’s teacher training for Waldorf-inspired homeschoolers. Two summers ago, a bunch of us were sitting around (sweating, I’m sure) and cooked up a crazy idea: why not get together in the winter? Last year this happened at my house and it was so wonderful, it made my Game Changers for 2014. This year, we all met in Austin, Texas.
Our time together was restorative – body and soul. In addition to all the talking, talking, talking and eating, eating, eating, we attended a lovely yoga class – complete with Tibetan bowls and and a huge metal gong. Yoga is way out of my comfort zone and I knew I was bringing a lot of resistance to the mat. When the teacher (Everrit Allen – total dream boat!) asked us to make an intention for our practice, mine was “Wide open.” It is amazing what happens when we greet the unknown with curiosity and love. Things change. We change.
Taproot promises to be a lot different this year. Look for details soon on Jean’s blog.
