How did we go from this, to an unimaginary world online? No one has ever been a number to me. I remember names and faces etched in my memory and the ongoing continuity of feedback from the follow up assignments, communication on line in our groups, hearing of each experience in reflection based writing is what makes teaching this way an undeniably powerful experience to me.
I am beginning to see that because of the feeling of safety and agency that students have gained from being in their own space, they are able to express themselves even more boldly and more powerfully than I’ve witnessed before in a large intimidating collective space of a studio. And maybe it’s because I’m encouraging them too because the same is happening to me.
The feeling within me as the teacher is every bit as real and tangible of a palpable energy exchange. In many ways, conversing face to face online is even closer than we might ever be in a large hall, especially with physical distancing and cautiousness still in place to some extent.
Part of an email from a participant on the most recent course.:-
“A huge thank you to you and the team for an incredible 4 weeks.
I hope my assignment shows how much I have learnt and what I have taken away from it.“
That’s more than enough for me.
I’m looking forward to Level 3 in November (it’s was booked out a year ago with students who clearly felt the same) and I’m looking forward to being able to open up the dates for 2022 as soon as I can.

I’m not a company. I am a teacher with amazing family support and an amazing team of assistants who will one day do what I’m doing too because that’s my teaching model ….. to share all I know and to empower others to do the same. Men and women.
