"Go One Step Past Where You Think You Should." - Cheryl Strayed
Cheryl Strayed's advice works for intimacy, performing and in so many areas of life. How many times have you said "I knew I should have said/done..." after it was too late to say or do it?
In the writing of a story or performance piece - going one step past where you think you should go actually brings you closer to the audience. Coming closer can be polarizing. Some people will love it, some will hate it, some may feel threatened, others may be bored. How much of our lives are spent saying we want to be more intimate with ourselves and/or other people- yet when the moment comes we try to start pushing it away?
You can see in the photo above that your heart line is between the intimacy zone and Pluto. Pluto is all about authenticity. We may be storing our buried treasure in Pluto. We can not be truly intimate without what we have cast out of our hearts and stored in Pluto. Why did we do this? Shame, wanting to belong, fear of our power, fear of death, destruction or things being blown up or falling apart.
Sunday during my Meet Your Guides - Meet Your Self call, my guides showed me a hand grenade and said it was time for some of the people in the group to pull the pin and toss the grenade. I do not take this lightly. I ask you "What area of your life needs an explosion?"
To do an explosion effectively you need to have someone there with you who does not let you look away or back away. Brouhaha 2017 is focused on the Creation and Destruction cycle- for you can not have one without the other - and we will be going to the opposite of where you are comfortable. That is we will be delving deeply into discomfort and creating from that space.
Creativity is risky. Without Risk there is no Art. Without Risk - Are you really alive? This festival is for everyone who wants to live more creatively - whether you think of yourself as creative or not.
