Well let’s start with the basics. I’m 20 on the 25th. I live on the beautiful west coast of Canada. I work in a small, privately owned business, one of (if not the) biggest kayak rental shops and kayak schools in Canada. Currently I’m doing accounts management, while my colleague is on maternity leave. I have no formal training though! My education thus far (in the traditional sense) has been just high school – I graduated with honours as the first female to graduate from my alternative school. My school life was varied – I never went to one school more then 2 years – first because we moved a lot, then because I wanted to find a program that fit. I think I would like to do post-grad schooling, but not yet. Not until I figure out what I want to do professionally, and in general with my life.
In the non-traditional sense of education, I also have experience. I’ve completed a two year program called “Level 6 – Teacher Training” at Lightwork, and done one year of Level 7. Level 7 is a three year program, 35 hours a week. I’m currently taking a year off to re-sort my life, but hope to re-join next year for year two. I’ve been doing Lightwork meditation lessons for 6 years now, and I’m still learning how to meditate! I’ve done this dynamic before, I used to do dance lessons, and I’d do lessons for years but never practice at home, and never saw the full potential I had. Same with singing, and piano, lessons were often the only time I played/sung. So I’ve done that with meditation, but now I want to have a practice for myself. I want to live a more spirit focused life.
I’ll take a moment right now to also mention that this blog is in no way the voice of Lightwork – it’s me. Please don’t take what I’m saying as Lightwork opinion, because it is only mine to claim. Although I’ve done the teacher’s training class, I’m not teaching anyone until I get my own practice sorted out! If you want to learn or are curious about it in particular, I’d recommend contacting Lightwork.
That’s me in a nutshell, and I’m sure you’ll learn lots more if you keep reading. Updates from my retreat begin tomorrow!
Cheers – J
