The Balinese believe in the existence of an indescribable, yet recognizable creative spirit or essence called Taksu. Artists and healers make it a practice to invite Taksu to inhabit them and guide them in their creative pursuits. While I watched the Integral Artistry participants at play, it was clear to me that Taksu had accepted their invitations. There in our workshop n the rice fields, I was treated to some of the most magical manifestations of kindness and compassion that I have ever seen…and just when I thought that Bali couldn’t possibly get any more beautiful!
My take away lesson from the Bali retreat, which will forever influence my teaching approach: A little less talk, a little more Taksu. T-shirts are in production.
Time to make space and invite the magic in. It really is that easy.
