“Jeffrey provides a space where you can simply exist, reflect, look ridiculous, try new things, and say “f**k it, let’s try it” and see where the chips fall in a space free of blame or shame. There isn’t necessarily a “right” way to do things, just many different options. You learn about the different aspects and driving factors that can influence individual actions, reactions, and choices. You learn about body awareness and how subtle changes can alter an encounter entirely. Most of all, you get to play and be challenged as much or as little as you prefer with a group of truly wonderful, welcoming, nurturing humans. I will absolutely be taking this lab again in the future and I highly encourage anyone interested to just do it, dive on in.”

Notes to Dearie | A project about Optimism and Serendipity
ALL OF MY LIFE, I have loved hiding notes for people to find.
With so much anxiety, tension, and conflict in the world right now, I’ve decided to play a little game and scatter some optimism for folks to discover, if they’re paying attention.
So, if you find a note to ‘Dearie‘, that’s from me!
I have to confess, this is very much for my own mischievous amusement… But I do wonder who might find one, and how they’ll react. Will they smile? Will they roll their eyes? Will they pass it on to a friend? Will they leave it where they discovered it? Will they toss it in the nearest rubbish bin without even reading it first? I don’t know, and perhaps it won’t make a difference to anyone but myself. But I hope Serendipity will help me share these words with people who need them.
Peace to you, and your heads, and your hearts. And if you ever find one of my notes, I hope you’ll let me know. All messages are composed, hand written, and unless otherwise noted, also hidden, and photographed by me.
