Ram shares his takeaways from the webinar:

“It was an awesome session with Pat. I started noting down pearls of wisdom. There were so many that I couldn’t keep up. Some jewels,
  • Emotions are E-Motions, Energy in Motion. How true. This is the foundation of chakras, our energy centers in Vedic psychology. They are the emotional centers as well.
  • Balance is Being in Motion. I know I am not quoting Pat verbatim. This is what the Whirling Dervish meditation is all about. One is in motion, and yet, so beautifully balanced, completely aware and in focus. It is stillness in motion.
The audience loved it. They didn’t want the session to end. One commented after the ‘balance’ definition, ‘now I know why I am so calm and clear when I wash dishes’. So do I, in fact.
Getting Naked was about learning to be human, in compassionate curiosity as Pat phrased it, exploring just enough and not too deep in partnering the client into Awareness Intelligence. “
