Welcome Fall- Welcome New Students
Fall is such a wonderful time for welcoming many new students to The Voice Work. Bringing consciousness to a function where consciousness is arguably not necessary for the quality of the functioning is an exciting challenge for me. My desire is simply to excite the students curiousity for the work.
One of the things I will often speak about is the students responsibility for supporting and attending to their classmates while in process of The Voice Work. There is a level of caring that is developed in class. Caring for one's fellow classmates. This caring is very important for the success of every student. This is a foreign concept to most of the new students to The Voice Work.
The Walrus TV posted this video recently and it spoke to this idea of responsibility, described as "personhood". The author, Madeleine Thien, succinctly describes the experience of lack of personhood and it's effect on others. It's approximately 7 minutes.
Let me know what you think.
