When I arrived at The Master Course the first thing I came up against was my creation about shyness. Imagine 200-300 people from all over the world! Every one of them looked and felt like an enemy trying to embarrass me. I wanted to go home. The course provided me with very effective, yet fun, tools to handle this. Soon my fears about people started to melt, and the classroom became the world's safest space. This allowed me to become more and more vulnerable. I started to get real and honest with myself.
Becoming real was just like Harry talked about in ReSurfacing. This was the greatest thing I harvested from The Master Course. We handle a lot of identities on The Avatar Course, but in some particular situation or with a particular person, I felt like I would put on armor to protect myself. I am sure you can imagine what it might be like to take off this heavy constricting armor. This feeling of liberation became the foundation of my confidence in doing life. It allowed me the space to go to Wizard's too!
By the end of the course those enemies became the warmest group of friends-cutting across all races, religions, occupations, etc. I would invite anyone who even has the slightest interest in coming to Master's to get on a plane and get there!
