As a practitioner of light touch supervision, I promote an artistic spirit, one that grabs from experiences, suggestions, observations, questions, relationships, the ones that fit you most.
An artistic spirit will guide you to do the thing your own way while listening to your intuition, your creative force, and sometimes with a nudge and support from someone else.
So go ahead, choose an adventure that commands your thoughts and liberates your energy.
