Wow the first day was just amazing! We got back together, the tribe, the Knowmads staff, friends of Knowmads and started the year with an unknown amount of energy!
I am sitting in the train thinking, enjoying, appreciating what I just experienced today. What I felt today was a level of energy and openness which I have never experienced before in a group (especially in the context of not knowing each other for more than 3 days). This came forward most when we closed the day with a ‘Check Out’. A method used to share feelings you take home after a day of working together (and is used in combination with a ‘Check In’ in the morning). Its purpose is to share what you feel and for the others just to listen and not to react. It’s like a ‘Popcorn effect’ Ursula explained, saying something when you feel like it, ‘just before the popcorn pops’.
For me this was the best feeling of the day, we were standing there and I could feel this energy. It just felt so warm how everybody for himself shared what he or she wanted to share and what for this person was important. In this moment personal feelings and stories were shared, combined with the most important experiences of that day of that person; the warmth, the positiveness, the openness, created an unknown energy in this circle. I felt a source of oneness and harmony. From this I can say YES this will be an amazing year, with these people, with this tribe, YES!!
