Teachers and students feedback Woodcroft PS sumie workshop

students sumie

A few years ago I had a wonderful few days at Woodcroft Primary in SA. In fact they invited me back twice.  It was '05 and '06 and woodcroft is down in the south side of Adelaide towards the Southern Vales and and not far from the coast.

When you get to a school there is always a little apprehension as to whether the teachers have understood your preparation info. and got the students primed and ready.  Well, this was one of those times when it was such a joy to share the spirit of Sumie.

Some classes and schools just stay in your emory like stars in the sky.  I remember waiting outside the school after the days workshops and feeling the sun on my back and the feeling of the sea nearby as I waited for my bus back to Adelaide, as I always like to support public transport although I have wheels.

Here are some of the thoughts of teachers and students.

Sumie and Zen are intertwined and teach us to have a clear and stable mind.
