Hamish Lindop is a new friend. He lives in New Zealand. He was participant the first series of online classes that Amanda Fenton and I offered on The Circle Way.
Though the class ended in March, the class that Hamish was in has continued to meet for connection and for learning. I suppose I could say that they are continuing to meet because of the feeling of transformation.
Hamish recently shared this appreciation, which moved me. With permission, I share his words here. I love the way that he witnesses the change that is happening in him through connection and circle.
I was reflecting a little more on our circle generally, and noticing how it is gradually transforming me as a person. The more that I get to know you all, and the more that goes into the well that is the centre of this circle, I find that I am gradually changing. I have a thin layer of cement around my heart, and I can feel cracks forming in that, and myself opening up more, to my family in particular. So I want to thank you all for creating this centre with me; and the centre, and you all, are in turn creating a new me.
