This trip gave me a lot of resources. After returning back home I was able look at my family members with love and understanding, instead of my usual fighting for territory and fiercely pushing away all that is uncomfortable.
The trip had a high degree of emotional, intellectual and creative energy. I felt interested, fascinated, exhilarated, free, safe, cosy, warm and comfortable.
I felt very comfortable and cosy because of Vera's caring attention, delicious tahini dishes, gnocchi, and a sensation that Vera and her GPS always knew where we were going.
I am glad that body-oriented practices, intellectual conversations and self-reflection always matched up with going new places, as well as personal interactions while doing everyday chores. This allowed for multi-dimensional daily experience. It was important that while Vera and Misha guided the overall flow of our Living Myth, every participant had his share of influencing the hue, the intensity and the pace of this flow.
This trip rekindled my natural curiosity and reopened limitless possibilities of learning. Living with my kids, I got used to "being the smartest one", so learning something new got to be useless and unstimulating.
During this trip people around me talked in three languages about books that I've never read, and films that I've never seen, and used words of unknown meaning. All of a sudden there were so many interesting things going in the Universe! Awesome!
