A blink of an eye and a lifetime later the course came to an end. Wow, what a journey, and I am not just saying it.
The party yesterday lit a fire within me, and I saw a whole other side of people I set side-by-side with throughout the course. People wrote poetry, sang, danced and told some very clever jokes. We laughed to tears, and I had a distinct feeling of “coming home.” It wasn’t just me, though. Today we completed the course by going around in the circle and each saying how we experienced the course, and what we plan to do in the future. Many people expressed the feeling of coming home and awe of being in the company of so many like-minded individuals. Hear hear.

So what’s next? Wherever the energy guides me. We’ll have to wait and see :).

Yeah, PDC is a life-changing experience. I didn’t think it would be, but it was. I learned many unexpected, and even philosophical things at the course and made new friends 🙂 Definitely sign up, if you have the opportunity!
Great journal of your experience with the PDC course! I am very close to signing up for the course that will be held in HK…
Looking forward to reading more from you!
