Getting Messy shows how teaching and learning are creative endeavors in which we create space for the expansion of our knowing to happen. You will discover how to: Find your voice and own your inner brilliance; Lead a group with beginner’s mind; Uncover inspiration when you most need it; Recognize and utilize the creative wisdom in the room; and Turn the messy business of being human into the stuff that makes you grow. Shakti Gawain said, “I loved Getting Messy! It’s one of those gems that will guide you toward greater self awareness.”
