Welcome to my January Blog: “In flow” in more ways than one.
First and foremost welcome to 2017. It’s almost the end of January now, but for many, the idea of the New Year is still very much on our minds. Perhaps you started a new hobby this year, or made some resolutions which you’ve managed to maintain or decided to abandon?
I’ve been developing a brand new workshop for 2017 called 3Flow which I’m really excited about. What is Flow? Often described this way: Flow — the mental state of being completely present and fully immersed in a task — is a strong contributor to creativity. When in flow, the creator and the universe become one, outside distractions recede from consciousness and one’s mind is fully open and attuned to the act of creating. Wow!
Many members of my choirs talk about feeling ‘in the present moment’ at rehearsal. Some describe their experiences of singing as part of one of my groups as ‘being lost in time’ and ‘without a care in the world’. They comment that as choir leader, I am often fully immersed in enabling ‘music making’. Have we all reached our state of flow in the same room at the same time? How do we know we are ‘In Flow’? The idea of being “in flow” has encouraged myself and two other fabulous workshop leaders to develop and deliver a unique one day workshop called 3Flow on Thursday 16th March 2017.
We are looking forward to welcoming all sorts of people who are also looking to create more “flow” in their lives and we would love to hear from you if you would like to join us too?
If you like the sound of the workshop, then do drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more details on what to expect and how to book here.
In the meantime, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed reading it and that my blog has encouraged you to notice something in your life which enables your state of Flow. Maybe it’s dancing, maybe it’s walking in nature, swimming or Yoga? Maybe it’s baking or kayaking or simply playing with your children. Maybe you’ve yet to discover it, but when you do it’s like that wonderful moment so beautifully described by so many of my choir members of ‘being in the present moment, fully immersed without a care in the world’.
Very best wishes
