14 Apr Life crafting
I have been playing with the word craft and the notion of crafting in the past few months, so this week, The Self-Coaching Minute explores our life crafting abilities. Are you a life crafter?
* * * * *
Crafters have an in-depth knowledge of their craft based on years of experience and commitment to practice.
A deep, intuitive, embodied connection to their material – clay, wood, stone, gems, ink…
They sense what is right in the moment.
They master detail in harmony with the whole.
They are curious, sensitive to the most subtle changes in the environment, conditions, their mindset or movements.
They learn from every piece.
They follow their inspiration, one idea, one movement, one small shift leading to another.
Crafters have the ability to detect emerging patterns and help them take shape.
