Today in class we did an exercise where we chose a partner. Tim had us sit in front of eachother (I had Nadiya)
and told one of us to be a and one b. After that, a was supposed to run their mouth and b was supposed to listen. For a whole five minutes was very intimidating to me, but I was the first one up so I went with it. It was actually very hard to stop once I started, and Nadiya looked totally engaged. In Nadiyas turn, it also looked like she was having difficulty stopping. When he told us we were supposed to share these stories about the other person in a circle, I got excited. Of course, some people had more difficulty remembering the story details than others, and we couldn't correct no matter what. I found it interesting to see how much it affected each of us to hear our stories, and how much we had begun to share with our partner about half way through. There was more of a trust between the partners. I thought that was really very interesting.
We did a lie down in class, kind of how we did for Ms Beck, at the first thirty minutes of class. It was just as peaceful as I remembered, but with no out of body experience this time. As we began to relax, close our eyes, and get taken away by tims voice, I began to feel very weightless; which was the opposite of what most felt. I felt I was laying on clouds, and my body was so relaxed. I could see the blu sky above me, and I just felt amazing. By the end of it, I felt like I had floated away and slept a very good nap for about two hours. Very refreshed and awake, full of energy for whatever is supposed to come next.
