The Healing Magic of Circus

Healing arises from hope, love, and community. Watching the kids perform that last day of Circus Camp reminded me that building community, artistic skill, and creative excellence takes practice, acceptance, and determination. At camp, the kids supported one another, competed, collaborated, created, and played. They also worked very, very hard. Circus Camp seems to be a great, flexible, supportive studio for creating the present and the future.

I imagine, and hope, that much healing occurred during camp. Transformation is a kind of magic. Healing, that transformation that takes us from disharmony to balance, is encouraged by engagement in the mysterious, the beautiful, and the awe-inspiring. Where better to find all of these, and community, than in the circus. Circus is magic!
