The boundless depths of understanding into which I sank during the Portland workshop with Almine were incomparable to anything I had experienced hitherto. With virtually no clue as to what could be expected from the workshop, I was blown to pieces by its overwhelming wholesomeness and serenity-inducing effects. That which I believed to be doomed to a fate of intangibility and endless drifting through the land of the abstract was somehow manifested in the form of palpable, yet non-cognitive, comprehension. Words blush at their inability to describe such an experience.
Almine has an unparalleled propensity for bestowing clarity upon confusion and implanting within doubt a delicate determination. The purity of this determination is indicative of her purity of being; a truly selfless life devoted to the exhilarating evolution of All That Is through endlessly uncovering the most profound of truths. As a student in her physical presence, you are given a chance to effortlessly absorb this purity and determine how best to cultivate it on your own. Thus, not only do you ingest unfathomable volumes of valuable cosmic material, but you are led to unearth an even greater quantity of information about yourself. I feel as though I inadvertently learned more about myself within the week than the sum total of my former 22 years combined. The opportunities for such precious gems of understanding flow with fluency into one’s consciousness are few and far between.
It was an honor to participate in the workshop; one could not possibly imagine a more life-altering, life-enhancing and unequivocally exciting adventure!
