Francine and Teen Chi Do
Kai Chi Do Instructor, Francine Brown, has been providing a series of Kai Chi Do classes for teens in Chicago. I love reading her posts about it on Facebook!
Francine is so authentic, she just speaks to the vulnerability and the power of love in all of us. She graciously allowed me to re-post her experience here:
“2nd class with the teens, WOWzerrs! Got some time beforehand to battle some of my own demons of the mind. Can we say teenage angst, was self projecting this morning in the house with my roommates feeling like they were looking at me like I had 3 heads (exactly what my ego thinks when I am in front of a room full of teenagers – so self conscious and worried no one is going to like me).
Thank goodness for the tools I have learned along the way to center and ground me into just being. The teens were even more receptive than the first time and it was a blast! They willingly came out into the center this time, they engaged, they laughed, they sang together, they held hands. Some still were too cool for school, others had some anger come up, it was just perfect.
They created community among themselves, it was so beautiful to be part of that experience. What a ripple of passionate love we created today!
Namaste teachers for the beautiful work that is shared when we step into the flow and Kai Chi Do.
And all I can say is, “Thank you, Francy-pants!”
