Barely a week ago was the graduation dinner for the first year of Communication with all Life University. It was quite a year. We spent the last 3 days of it working from early until late. Our finals were at Little Bit Therapeutic riding center. There, my students talked to a couple of horses in the program and dogs that the staff brought from home. It was an awesome day. Bittersweet – Awesome for them. For me? Also amazing – and I have to let them blossom on their own – time to let go – how spring like!!!!
In the time that they were here, we reviewed the last year in terms of each of the student’s accomplishments as well as how they utilized their electives (of body work or energy work). We examined how to set up and market their Animal Communicator practice/business. Of course, that blueprint has been in place for some time through the various assignments. We had intuitive moments and business building as well as structure creating and brainstorming on how to build the day/week/career they want. Many stayed on for Animal Alchemy – the others flew out that had taken it last year – what a 10 day period!
The growth and commitment of everyone has been astounding. I’m so moved. I am amazed at how much these people wanted to stretch and how far they came by being willing. We have had so many laughs and plenty of tears.
Our excursions have always been fun (I love a good field trip whether we are at the Seattle campus or the Orlando campus!) Our field trips have been as wide-ranging as Snoqualmie Falls to a Trapeze Act during dinner to an Orb tour to the Pike Place Market Ghost tour to a Magic show in Orlando, Fairy hikes, trail rides outside of Orlando, the cow milking package to the Space Needle. Not to mention, wonderful dinners! Hopefully next Orlando trip is an airboat ride and next October here is a sea plane over the city.
Aside from the use of the electives, they all expressed something they learned and tried from the various Animal Education Teleseminars. Or what they gained (or didn’t) from the various assignments.
They have raised the bar for me in terms of what to expect from students. For the most part when I said jump – they didn’t question, they telepathically asked “how high”? And then they elegantly followed through. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more diverse and wonderful group. Oh did I drive them crazy sometimes!
I also have great help from Shannon the Lead Mare and Dean of Students. Additionally, the dorm couldn’t have been a wackier place at TYD Farm (Thank you Virginia). And thank you Geri for your serene dorm in Geneva, Fl.
Thank you Shannon, Pam, Diane, Sarah and Veronica for making me become a better teacher!
