Bliss - full
Over at Tess's and Lucy's sites last week we were all invited to respond to Blisschick's invitation to share the blissful activities we enjoy. I believe I probably replied to everyone's site but in those replies I found the need to just share it out loud right here on MindSieve! So......
Even though watching others create can sometimes be intimidating, I still love the joy of exchange while learning in a group. I believe that nothing we learn is wasted even if we only use it once and then move on. The stimulation of the new experience and sharing it is worth the time spent learning. Also, learning by oneself, via a book, the internet - that food for brains is "always" there tucked away for just the right word to wake it up. I find learning and my brain's treasured depths that can be summoned up on command (most of the time) to be a fascinating subject in itself. Although I haven't enrolled for a brain surgeon class any time soon - although Tess did encourage me to do that, stating she thought I would be a fine one -- I'm happy to sit and speculate to my heart's content about how my brain works now and how it improves every day.
Learning turn any of you on in some way? Would you rather learn in a one to one setting or in a group exchange? Have you taken a class or a workshop or retreat for yourself in the last year - want to share?
