A real Living Myth has happened to me in Indonesia! Yes, yes, yes, a very real Living Myth. It was not just a meaningful journey, not just getting to know Indonesia – it was a space of my very own Living Myth. it was a space in which experiences that I collected throughout my life suddenly interlinked, interconnected and blossomed. It was a space for my personal courage, challenge and victory, it was a space for contemplation, a space of transformation and synchronicities, it was a living space, a space of Living Myth.
I am very grateful to Yana, Michael and Hauwke. Thank you very much for thoroughly organizing everything, and giving me freedom to be who i am. Thank you for your kindness, care and professionalism. Thank you!
It is difficult to put in words the power of what I experienced in two weeks of our expedition. I will attempt to express that through four gifts that i received:
1) A beautiful, rich, pithy, contrasting journey through Indonesian islands! Visiting temples, living with an Indonesian family, meeting a traditional healer, bicycling through rice fields, swimming first with turtles, then with whale sharks in an open sea, visiting a cave waterfall, climbing volcanoes!
2) A wholisitc perspective onto my life story, merging little and big events that happened before the trip, and underwent transformation during Living Myth. LifeStream and MySelf laboratories helped prepare for eventful days, integrate experiences and impressions, and invite important questions to emerge in a group process, to be discussed and answered.
3) Reawakening as the author of my own life. This was the Artist in Voyage expedition, meaning I am the creator of my own life. I have to say that this is neither a concept, nor a logical and a resourceful position to be in, but a poignant experience of being the author of my life. And the essence of this experience is still with me.
4) Meeting amazing people and becoming friends with them. Long looks, group discussions, tender hugs, joint efforts, joyful laughter, help and support, understanding similarity and difference, exchanging knowledge and skills. MySelf laboratory, humanitarian project in an orphanage, time spent together – all that made it possible to open, express, integrate and present everyone in a unique way.
And all that did happen!
