As is generally the case with Lorna's work, there is no escape from the inner reality. Even by stepping into the room, those present invite themselves into a place of transformation.
We explored themes such as "surface politeness" - how we often turn up, or behave in a particular way, or say a particualr thing because it is the polite thing to do. And how utterly depleting that can be.
As Lorna said " How can I, in my uniqueness, be available to this situation, exactly as it is unfolding."
This question: "what am I available for?" is a simple but powerful and potentially transformational reminder that there is a choice in what, and how and with whom we can be fully present.
Earth = Complete, Dynamic Availability
Through movement, breath, sound and text I found myself navigating the "void". I was reminded, as I am cyclically of chapter 11 from the Tao Te Ching
Thirty spokes share the wheel's hub;It is the centre hole that makes it useful.
Shape clay into a vessel;
It is the space within that makes it useful.
Cut doors and windows for a room;
It is the holes which make it useful.
Therefore benefit comes from what is there;
Usefulness from what is not there.
And we played with this juxtaposition:
Remove Wholeness from the Whole, Wholeness remains.
