On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend Teal’s workshop in Prague. As many of you know, I’m her huge fan. When I found out that Teal is coming to Czech republic, I knew that I have to go. There is no way I would miss such a great opportunity. If I’m lucky, maybe I can meet her and ask her a question… I was hoping for it. Two months before the day of the workshop I started to count days which are left until Teal’s workshop :D.
The day had finally arrived and I visited Prague. I had a chance to see Teal two days in a row. On Friday she had a presentation about the importance of emotions at the Festival Evolution. You can watch it here:
I had a very good impression from Teal on Friday. Not that I have expected she isn’t good live :D. I expected her to be awesome. And she was awesome! 🙂 But it surprised me that she seemed so humble, so fragile and so vulnerable. From her videos I had the impression she has a sassy leader personality. And there she was, so innocent, like a princess. 🙂
I enjoyed her presentation very much. I’ve learned a lot that day. She was using a simple language to make it easier for the translator to translate it to Czech, so it was much more understandable for me. I could understand her teachings even more deeply.
While she was talking on stage, she also made eye contact with members of the audience. She looked into my direction many times and I felt like she was staring right into my eyes a few times. In that moment, I almost suffered from a heart attack and fell of my chair! 😀 Her stare was so intense, I felt like she was seeing my soul. But considering the way Teal sees the world, it’s clear to me why she looked towards me so often. Me and my friend, which was sitting right next to me, must have been radiating the strongest vibration of love and appreciation in the room :). It’s hard to miss that vibration! :D. I bet that most people came to the presentation just out of curiosity. They may have seen a few Teal videos and thought she was interesting, so they’ve decided to come see her live. But I have seen each and every one of her videos (multiple times), I’ve read all of her blog posts, I stalk her everywhere I can on the internet… I’m such a big fan of hers, you could hardly find a bigger one :D. From the beginning to the end of the presentation, my mind was filled with thoughts of love and appreciation for Teal and what she’s doing. I was so excited to sit in the same room just a few meters from her. I bet I was radiating there like a nuclear plant :D.
The workshop took place on Saturday morning. I was surprised how many people came to the workshop. There were people from all over the world that gathered just to see Teal. From so many people, I couldn’t find any of my internet friends. I was scared that I will be left alone and I won’t get to know anybody. Thankfully I was wrong. Right behind me was sitting a group of young English speaking people. I spoke to them and found out that they come from different countries all over the world. It was interesting to listen to their stories about how they came across Teal’s teachings. I’m so happy I could meet these wonderful people :).
The workshop was in form of questions and answers. Everyone who had a question raised their hand and Teal picked one person whose question was most in alignment with the vibration of the whole group. Teal described it that the person with the right question lights up for her. Then that person went on stage and discussed the issue with Teal.
I could relate to all the questions asked on that workshop. Most people asked personal questions. When we have uncovered the root of the problem by each question, we discovered that we all have the same problem – we don’t feel good enough. We feel unloved, we feel like there’s something wrong with us. I’ve realized in the middle of the workshop how normal I actually am :D. I used to think I was the only one struggling with self worth and feelings of worthlessness. But in reality there is no person on this planet that hasn’t experienced such thing at least once in their life. We are all struggling with the same thing. I’ve learned many new things about myself in the workshop. I’ve realized towards what kind of things I have resistance and how should I work on myself. It was an intense healing process.
I was raising my hand throughout the whole workshop hoping to ask my question. But Teal always picked someone else. The end of the workshop was near and I was afraid that I won’t get the chance to ask my question. When Teal said we have time for the last question only, I was focusing all of my attention on being picked. And it worked! Teal picked me and my question! 🙂 Now I had to go on stage, sit next to her and discuss my problem with her. I was very nervous because I hate being the center of attention. So many people were looking at me and there I was sitting in front of Teal. She was scanning me with her eyes and I felt like she was seeing deep corners of my soul. It was almost like I was sitting on that stage naked! 😀 I knew I had to calm down because Teal is surely able to see my panicking thoughts. But it didn’t help and I literally felt like the most awkward person on this planet while I was sitting there. I started to calm down when I was sitting there for quite some time. I started to enjoy it and I was so excited that Teal now knows about my existence and I’m able to talk to her! 🙂
Teal and I talking on stage
I asked Teal a question about young people in this society. I told her about my sister and how my parents are forcing her to only learn math, because that is the subject she is worst at. She’s doing good in all other subjects, but my parents are only forcing her to solve math problems and take extra lessons. They ban her from doing anything she enjoys – she can’t go out, she can’t meet her friends, she can’t use the internet… They come up with all sorts of punishments to force her to do what she hates to do the most. I can relate to the case of my sister because it’s the same thing my parents did to me. Our parents think that they own us. They think that they know what is best for us. And we, the children can’t do anything about it. We can’t just quit going to school, then our parents will go to jail… When an adult person says that they hate their job, Teal would say that they should quit that job and start doing something they enjoy instead. But what can a child do when they hate school? (I’m sure most kids hate school). We can’t just quit. So I asked Teal what to do in such case.
Teal told me that she understands my situation. In this society, the educational system is horrible. We send our children to jail. We force them to learn things that are mostly absolutely unnecessary for our lifes. Teal admitted that she also was horrible at math in school :D. And in real life you don’t need math, unless of course you choose some math oriented career :D.
According to Teal the most beneficial thing for my sister to do is to release resistance she has towards math. She can play a game where she pretends to be a science nerd. How would that science nerd act in solving a math problem? Thanks to that kind of attitude math isn’t that bad. Another good idea is to reward yourself after successfully solving a math problem. Teal demonstrated it on the example of Skittles (but she told us that sweets our unhealthy, maybe we can try it with something more natural). But we can play a game that after each accomplishment we eat or do something enjoyable. We have to do anything that makes that subject more acceptable for us.
Teal answering my question
I think Teal said something like that to me. I’m not so sure about it because while I was sitting there, I was kind of in an altered state of consciousness :D. I didn’t experience time normally and I didn’t even realize which words were coming out of my mouth. It was all so unreal. I still can’t believe it happened :D. But it must have happened, I have photos as proof. At the end Teal hugged me! 🙂 It’s a dream come true for me :). Just before the workshop began, I met a girl that said she hugged Teal. I was so jealous and I didn’t know what can I do to get a hug from Teal. But I got it! Yay :D. It was amazing.
On the next day, Blake invited us (people from the workshop) to go on a walk around Prague. It was amazing, I’ve met people from all over the world. There’s nothing better than finding people who are on the same wave length as you are and think in a similar way. I felt like I have finally returned to my home planet :D. I never felt such a connection with anyone like I did with these people that I’ve met in these 3 days. Even though I talked to some of them just for a little while, I still felt like they understand me better than some people I know for years.
Tealers in Prague
Teal’s workshop was a wonderful experience! I don’t regret anything at all. If Teal ever comes back or if she visits my country (Slovakia), I’m coming without a shadow of a doubt. It’s worth it just for the amazing people you meet here. And Teal is absolutely amazing and it’s awesome to see her live.
I also want to thank everybody who made this workshop possible. You’ve done a great job. I haven’t met anyone who wouldn’t enjoy the workshop. To all who participated in the workshop – huge THANKS! :).
