After the first chanting workshop I did with Lucy Crisfield, I felt a sense of transformation. It is difficult to describe in words but the world felt different! Lucy manages to teach people of mixed experience in a group with absolute authority, clarity and authenticity. She is an inspiration. She allows the chants to 'speak for themselves' whilst illuminating their meaning when appropriate. I feel total trust in her as she lights the way to the new experiences and understandings gained by chanting.
Thank you very much Lucy for being so faithful to the sutras' concisiveness, juiciness and simplicity. Your teaching was precisely that and made dipping a toe into the scriptures world much less daunting. Your style of teaching is both direct, focused, dedicated, strong, joyful and so simple. You were a real joy to be around.
Collectively, India has been seen through me for 8 months over recent years, it's another place to feel at home. That said, you're approach and methodology opened me up to understand a little more. For the first time, Sanskrit felt accessible, however is was the sensation of what I felt that really touched me, more so than 8 months in India, so that you for that gift.
You really did leave the group totally enchanted and willing to exploring more.
Massive thanks again for such an incredible weekend.
