“I have seen many participants returned to our sessions after our first work encounter. These rather short days of intensive workshop always yield to many participants’ needs for further work. It always take me by great surprise to see the growth and evolution in these artists; whom many have made their way to second, third, or more times of on-going practice. This, often, has stimulated their fellow artists with greater hunger for their own artistic growth and further craftsmanship.
There is a sense of continuous ‘work contact’ even after an artist has completed the work session. One might develop and deepen one’s practice even in distance away from Sourcing Within. Conscience lies in the one who continues to nourish the creative ‘seed’ after our work encounters, in whatever landscape one finds oneself to be; despite the difference of ‘soil’ and ‘climate’.
Other than these intensive work sessions, my work often takes place within the academic institutions, of relatively longer duration. Many beginners in performing arts demonstrated incredible receptivity and playfulness in class. Often I find myself reflecting and contemplating upon their participation. They seem to be my young ‘selves’. I breathe along with each of their steps; irresistibly looking back to what lies in my own beginning through these steps.”
