Inquisitive, resourceful, generous and accommodating, Lucy's genius in the realm or sound is shared with an unassuming wit, humor and kindness of character. My recommendation of Lucy is sincere, and comes with the request of those who are as sincere, to entertain an opportunity of exploring the richness of the Self through the guidance of dear Lucy's stellar mastery.
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 have never met a person like Lucy, and what a privilege it is knowing her! My 200hr yoga teacher training group had the great fortune of having Lucy lead us through yoga philosophy and some very profound ancient teachings. With her guidance, material like the "Yoga sutras of Patanjali", which I can find difficult to absorb on my own, absolutely came alive.
Her style of transmitting information is a well crafted art. She began by leading a beautiful meditation and taking the group (28 yoga teachers in training) through a series of Vedic chanting. After the chanting, I was completely and fully absorbed in everything being said in the room. We learned about yoga and Vedic philosophy, Sanskrit, the true form of Om and so much more.
It was such an incredible experience that during a break I asked Lucy how it was possible that I've never possessed such a direct line of focus before this? She explained that these teachings, when passed along from a place of true knowing, take on that type of energy that I had experienced.
So, it's a bit difficult to express how profound her presence in the room was. It was something else. All I can do is say thank you, Lucy, for taking me on that journey. My journey into true knowing and onto deeper levels of conscious has been so positively effected by our meeting!
Shanti Shanti Shanti,
