1:00 pm – 4:00pm
In Sacramento, California. Downtown. In a gorgeous studio.
What happens there:
- Delicious brain-scrambling and then even more delicious clarity.
- Writing. Or drawing, scribbling or doodling, if you do not like to write.
- Epiphanies. Hot, buttered epiphanies.
- Laughing. A lot.
Who gets to come:
The first fifteen people to sign up.
Why now is a good time to do this:
This will be my last not-at-the-Playground program until mid-2012.
So if you want to hang out with me and Selma somewhere that is not Oregon, it’s going to have to be Sacramento. :)
What not to be worried about:
Oh, so many things!
Let’s see …
1. Having to do three whole hours of Shiva Nata, because you won’t.
We’ll be breaking it up with writing and exercises and capers and old Turkish Lady stretches.
2. Everyone else being better than you.
There will be total first time beginners and people who have trained with me for years.
Everyone will be lost and confused, because that’s how we do it.
3. What to wear.
Anything comfortable that you can move in is fine. I’ll probably be wearing a cotton dress over loose pants or tights.
4. Where to stay, if you’re coming from out of town.
We have a list of nearby hotels and B&Bs. You can share a place with other participants. You’ll get a link and password to our resources page and the private travel arrangements page when you sign up. The plans: we will help each other with making them.
What you should be worried about, probably:
Heed Surgeon General Shiva’s warning:
Epiphanies can change your life!
For the better, of course. But it’s still change. Pretty much always weird and freaky. Sorry about that.
How much to hurry:
I think I would. Probably. The studio where we are doing this is gorgeous but not large. This will fill up quickly.
However, I do not want to be pressure-ey because that is not fun for either of us. Think on it, meditate on it, dance on it, come if it speaks to you.
And I’m also doing something I don’t do. Whee!
I do not generally do guarantees because I don’t like or need them, but I am feeling drawn to offer one now anyway.
And so here it is:
If within 36 hours of your class, you have not at least three useful realizations that are surprising to you and one lovely idea that you’ve never had before, I will be astonished. And I will give you your money back.
But really? This is lowballing it because you will have so much more than this. You will have dozens of realizations, as well as huge excitement and enthusiasm about doing things with them. And you will meet great people and know what you want and surprise yourself. Because that is what happens.
What this is going to cost.
When I did the pricing meditation on this I got both $120 and $90.
So we’ll go with $90 if you have ever left a comment on the Shiva Nata blog. And I will kick it up to $120 as we get closer.
Would you like a button?
I just found one.
UPDATED. This workshop filled up in a day and a half. You could email the first mate and ask to be put on a waiting list in case anyone has to cancel. Otherwise I will see you at the Playground!
p.s. If you can’t make it this time, I will still adore you. And maybe we will see each other at the Playground someday. xox
