I recently spent two weeks with Teal Swan and her intentional community in Park City, Utah. Today I feel like sharing my personal experience with the Spiritual Catalyst.
In March I heard that Teal and Ale were getting married. Since I used to photograph weddings and really love these days full of joy and laughter, I sent them my old wedding portfolio book, offering to photograph their wedding as my gift for their union. Not only did they accept my present, but they also invited me to live with them in their house during my visit. I was thrilled.
I have spent 2 weeks in her house and 1 week on a road trip together with several of her best friends. As their wedding photographer, I was at their side for every minute of their wedding day. It was a wonderful experience in which I could get to know, see and feel Teal, Ale and their close ones. These were 3 of the most amazing weeks of my life. I have traveled a lot in the last ten years to the most exotic places on earth, but I have rarely found what I found there. After an initial shyness, I was able to show and express myself freely; I felt seen and validated in my fears and weaknesses. I did not have to please anybody. Just be myself. This total acceptance made me shine and brought up my best self.
