I recently came back from teaching The Quest For Inspiration at the Rancho La Puerta spa in Mexico. I realize that being transparent and authentic is where the magic happens. Just walking into a room and being utterly yourself is harder than playing a role. When I teach this workshop in the corporate world, I try to gently get my students out of their comfort zone. I believe the only time you really learn anything is when you are sitting a little bit “at the edge of your seat” wondering what will happen next.
