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.
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.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the incredible retreat, it was one of the best things I have ever done. You really brought the sutras to life and made them easy to understand. I had a very deep sense of understanding and believing in them and I have been reflecting on and keeping in mind much from the retreat since I left.
