Recently I attended The School of the Livingness/Universal Medicine end of year celebration. It was an amazing night of people coming together, having so much fun celebrating our-selves and each other.
There was a diverse array of performances, all special in their unique expression: from classical singing to ultra cool and funny rapping sisters, to an all male choir, plus other awesome singers, musicians, songwriters and presenters. Each performance so different, yet had the common thread of expressing their true self. As an audience member it allowed me to feel the freedom of expressing the truth of me. I had so much fun listening, sharing food and dancing. It felt great (and funny) to ‘strut’ my moves on the dance floor, to dance with no self- judgement or feeling that others were judging me.
The night was truly amazing and so different in feeling to “Christmas time” celebrations in which I have participated in the past (especially waking up clear the next day, with no regrets from alcohol-fuelled foolishness). I felt the freedom to just be who I am, no holding back, no judgements, not needing to please others or fit in – how glorious is that?… Certainly something to celebrate!
It was a beautiful night, and the thing is, it does not just last for one night – a peak at the end of the year. This joy in connecting with the world in such a loving way is part of our daily lives.
