Project Sanctuary can provide all manner of ways and means in which we can make it easier to learn new skills, or break the ice on the idea that something can't be learned or is out of our reach.
From Autogenic Practice to resolving road blocks to learning, and from acquiring essential skills to choosing the right assistants, trainers, teachers and environments, there are literally infinite ways in which we can make learning fun - even if it should be Ballroom Dancing!
Strictly Ballroom ...
Peter: Dear Silvia,
I went over the list and found that I am able to do most of those things already. But this one caught my attention: Dancing & Partying Whenever You Want.
Are you suggesting I will be able to learn how to dance in PS? Wow! Now yer talkin:-) Hugs, Peter
This comes under the dour heading of "Autogenic Training" as practised by the hardest of East European athletes and the CIA, with enough scientific data and evidence in the Hard to bury a number of the smaller 3rd World countries under.
Here's a quote to inspire you:
"The Chinese pianist Liu Chi Kung was imprisoned for seven years during the Cultural Revolution, during which time he had no access to a piano. When he returned to giving concerts again after he was released, his playing was better than ever. Asked how this was possible since he had not practice for seven years, he replied: "I did practice, every day. I rehearsed every piece I had ever played, note by note, in my mind." ~ Bernie Zilbergeld
So, practising dancing in Sanctuary is an amazing thing.
Firstly, you get to do it in total privacy. No embarrassment. You can choose your teacher. You can develop a training programme to suit you.
It might not even start with dancing, but indeed with "becoming a fish" to loosen up some entrainments or add more fluency/flexibility.
You might spend some time as a tribal drummer to "get with the beat".
Become the drum, even, or the pulses a drum makes.
All of that in a couple of sessions so that when you get to the actual "business of dancing", you have the *resources* you need to learn it quickly and successfully.
You might find other things. Memories of not dancing or being embarrassed that may be re-written and over-written entirely in the process. Flowing with partners and by yourself.
Ah! but there are so many, many things to do.
And you keep it up until you just can't stop it any longer wanting to spill over into the Hard.
I know of a lady who went into a jacuzzi for a few months every day and in the end she couldn't stand it anymore and had to go down to a health club and get a membership to do it for real!
She loves going there and floating now in the no longer so very "hard" for real and has had also lots of insights and experiences with "health clubs being for rich people and I'm not one of those ..." and all sorts, including going public in a swimming costume.
Start dancing in Sanctuary!!!!!
It's the perfect place *to get started* - with *anything* that seems too much of a challenge if you were to try it in the hard without having practised a bit and learned something important first!
