I entered this experience of elevation with many expectations and goals. I realized three days later that all I really needed was to be alone; with my thoughts, without social and business pressures and with my mind at its purest form.
We entered a state of challenge; one that we hadn’t faced before. Our businesses and ideas were no longer our claim to identity. Our phones were no longer our resource of leaving a conversation. And our networking abilities were no longer necessary. Forward thinking conversations were required, letting go with crazy and sober dancing was enlightening and grasping the beauty of nature refreshing.
The elevation team did above and beyond with such authentic elegance. They were able to subtly educate us with religious and local references, inspire us with the group of incredible women they brought together and empower each of us to think about ourselves within and outside of our visions.
It was a privilege and honor to be surrounded by such hands on dreamers; to laugh with them, cry with some, converse deeply with a few and reflect with myself.
I am definitely elevated. My business partner actually told me this yesterday. This entire week I have been running a storytelling course and I feel relaxed and empowered. I am grateful to the Negev, to seventy five unique women and to Elevation Academy for their genuine efforts to enable this feeling.
